Firstly, Welcome back from what has been a very busy Recess.
I am absolutelty delighted by the brethren who turned out and supported us for our sleepout and following casino night. My personal thanks go to the brethren from 272, 927, 1614 and other visiting lodges who also supported us on these occasions. We raised an incredible £4200. Doubling our initial target of £2000. This will go a long way to helping the homeless within the Greyfriers Community Project in Edinburgh.
We also hosted the John Grant Memorial Dominos tournamement with the brethren from 272 and 1601. A great night was had by all once again and 272 ran away with the trophy for the second year running. 1601 came second with Stoneyburn galant losers.
The masonic Bowling has also been taking place during the recess and as far as I am aware we have not won any of the tournaments played.
On a more Sombre note, it is my sad news to report the passing of PM Bro Robert Carmichael. Robert was a large character within the lodge and never let his disability get in the way of his fun character. Robert recently became a grandad and was proud as punch with the time he spent with his family. He attained the chair of the lodge in 1998/99 and continued to support the lodge until he was admitted into the care home then onto Erskine.
Many brethren visited Robert and although his health physically deteriorated , Robert was always the same cheery character. He will be sadly missed by all who knew and loved him.
Finally, I'd like to thank the brethren of the lodge for your support and lets continue to drive the good name of Lodge St John Stoneyburn forward, both within and outwith our province,
