ALL FUNCTIONS OF LODGE CARRON No.139 HAVE NOW CEASED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
CARONAVIRUS (COVID 19)
RWM Brother Jim MacAulay
This is a very difficult decision for me to make but unfortunately due to the current ongoing situation I have no alternative but to CANCEL all our forthcoming Regular Meetings, Visitations, Committee Meetings and our Senior Event from 13th March 2020
As you can all appreciate, there are several Brethren of the mature age that are more prone to infection , based on the government and NHS information, this can easily be checked online www.nhs.uk/Coronavirus or calling NHS 111.
I do not believe that we should be putting any Brother or his family at risk. I have discussed at length this morning with the PGS Bro Nicol Scobbie regarding rescheduling our meetings as he also of the same opinion as myself , all your health and well being is far more important .
I would propose that moving forward we would reschedule our remaining regular meetings for the end of May, June & July at a date that would be decided at a later date.
PGLS would assist in 139 receiving dispensation to achieve this, can I also ask you all to help by advising Lodge Carron members and would be visitors who are not on our Facebook page and Lodge Website of this announcement? Finally stay safe and healthy and we look forward to welcoming you all back into Lodge Carron No.139 at a later date.
I trust this will meet with your approval.
Fraternally RWM Brother Jim MacAulay

Dear Brethren and Visitors to our Lodge Website
I was delighted to have been Installed as Right Worshipful Master on 13th December 2019, by Installing Masters PM Bro Stuart Stirling No.139, PM Lenny McComb No.484 and PM Bro James Kerr No.484, also a big thanks to each and every Brother of the Lodge and Visitors who took the time to join the Brethren and I on this very special evening of Installation. I look forward to a prosperous year for the Lodge. I must congratulate the new Worshipful Wardens and Officebearers on taking up the challenge of office and hope they enjoy the ensuing year ahead. We have a busy time ahead with our regular meetings and special invitations to confer various degrees at our Sister Lodges, but feel sure working as a team we will keep up all our good work. On behalf of the Wardens, Office Bearers, PMs and Brethren of the Lodge Carron No.139. I extend to you a warm welcome to our Lodge Website and our Lodge which I hope you will find interesting, informative and welcoming. I also hope that you are provided with a greater insight into our Lodge social functions, and charitable events, which tries to give as much needed support as we can. Freemasonry is one of the world’s oldest and largest non-religious, non-political, fraternal and charitable organisations. It teaches self-knowledge through participation in a progression of ceremonies. Members are expected to be of high moral standing and are encouraged to speak openly about Freemasonry. Freemasonry is a society of men concerned with moral and spiritual values. Its members are taught its principles (moral lessons and self-knowledge) by a series of ritual dramas – a progression of allegorical two-part plays which are learnt by heart and performed within each Lodge – which follow ancient forms, and use stonemasons’ customs and tools as allegorical guides. Freemasonry instils in its members a moral and ethical approach to life: its values are based on integrity, kindness, honesty and fairness. Members are urged to regard the interests of the family as paramount but, importantly, Freemasonry also teaches concern for people, care for the less fortunate and help for those in need. Freemasonry is intended to offer those who are members the opportunity to make themselves better individuals and demonstrate to others that they are kind, considerate and charitable to those less fortunate than themselves, irrespective of whether they are Freemasons or not. We are not a religion. Our beliefs are compatible with all religions which believe in a Supreme Being. To all the Brethren of No.139, if you have been unable to attend over the past few years for whatever reason, the Brethren and I would be delighted to welcome you back into our Mother Lodge with the extended hand of Brotherly love and cement the bond of Brothers once again. Thank you for visiting our website and I hope you enjoy its various topics.
