On Monday 2nd September 2019 I was delighted, privileged and indeed honoured to lead a fine deputation from Lodge Carron No.139 into Lodge Callendar No.588 for the first meeting of the new season. We were very warmly and well received by RWM Brother Barry Hamilton and all Brethren. We then all witnessed a flawless Entered Apprentice Degree on one candidate. To make the evening slightly more special from a personal perspective was the candidate being my stepson Kyle who was thoroughly impressed by the whole evening and has asked me to pass on his sincere thanks to Barry and everyone who made him feel so welcome. I was given the honour of delivering the Mode of Preparation lecture and it was extra special that Kyle’s cousin, WSW Calum McArdle was word perfect delivering the secrets and Apron. There was a very proud grandfather sitting in the columns and I am sure Kyle’s uncle, the late PM Bro. Robert Mason was smiling in the Grand Lodge Above. A great evening and thanks to everyone, especially those from my Mother Lodge, for making this a special night for our family.
