Happy New Year 2015

May I take this opportunity to wish you all a very happy New Year.
You may have noticed that the Lodge website hasn't been updated for a few months. Its not that it has been neglected, more our Webmaster has been very busy on other Projects.
Setting up his own regalia business, setting up Provincial Grand Lodge of Linlithgowshires communication tools (webpage, facebook, mobile app etc). A very busy Man indeed and can I just say, very much appreciated by the brethren of our Lodge.
As we enter a New Year we have many memories in 2014 to look back on (some good, some sad) and more to look forward to in 2015. Our Nominations and Elections took place in December and I am absolutely delighted that the lodge has placed it's faith in me once again to steer the lodge for a second term come February.
We have two meetings this month, our first on the 15th January and the FC degree will be conferred by Lodge Almondale No1658. Our second meeting will be the 3 way tie special meeting on the 29th January, with the Douglas Lodge No409 and Lodge Buchan St John No636. Buchan St John will also be conferring an exemplification of the FC degree. This meeting only happens 2-3 times a year and I would cordially welcome you all on this occasion.
I would also like to acknowledge some of our brethren who will be entertaining at some Burns Suppers towards the end of the month. PM Bro Alan Borsbey will be delivering the Immortal memory for the second year at Lodge Lord Bruce No1601, PM Bro Ronnie Gemmill will also be delivering the Immortal memory at Lodge Torphichen Kilwinning No13 , whilst I shall be addressing the haggis. I hope you all have a great start to 2015 and I hope to welcome you into Lodge St John Stoneyburn on your earliest visitation.
