On Wednesday 11th September 2019 Lodge Carron 139 held their first meeting after the recess where RWM Bro Stuart Stirling PM warmly welcomed all the Brethren in to the Lodge. The degree was a MMM Degree on three candidates which was expertly carried out to a very high standard by the RWM and his Office Bearers. After the conclusion of the degree RWM Bro Stirling thanked the office bearers who took part in the Degree for a first class rendition of the MMM Degree he informed the assembled Brethren that there had not been a practice he thanked the three candidates for the attention the gave during the ceremony. RWM Stirling then closed the lodge and invited everyone to stay behind for some lodge hospitality.”

Lodge 362 were there to confer an exemplification of the EA Degree on one substitute candidate Bro James Mcmeechan HM No.312. The degree was superbly carried out to a very high standard by the office bearers and HM of Lodge St Clair 362. IPM Bro Tam Meikle 139 HM 362 was the DOC which was his first time as a DOC which he carried out with dignity and decorum as did all who took part in the degree. At the conclusion of the degree RWM Bro Scobbie thanked RWM Bro Irvine for inviting Lodge St Clair No.362 to carryout the degree and he hoped that the mallet while it was in his hands it had lost none of it’s Masonic Lustre he also thanked all the brethren in his Deputation for their support. RWM Bro Irvine said it had gained more Masonic Lustre he then bestowed HM on Bro David Murray of Lodge St Clair No.362 it was good to meet our many friends and Brethren after the recess 62 Brethren signed the Tyle.” Report by SD Brother Lindsay Wannan.

An inspiration to many of us. Fraternal greetings were duly exchanged and we all retired for Lodge hospitality a thoroughly enjoyable evening had by all. Bro.Tam Meikle RWM 139

NEW LODGE TABLE

Brethren of Lodge Carron I hope like me, you are happy with the final work done on our new presentation table. As requested a "pelmet" with name, and design has been fixed to the front. Until we see it in person we will not be able to appreciate the completed work but I do think it will match the Ballot Box perfectly and another great addition to our Lodge furniture moving forward with the Lodge upgrades.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   

TRAVELLING GAVEL

On Thursday 2nd March 2017 I had the privilege and indeed honour of leading a Deputation of 15 Brethren from Lodge Carron 139 into Lodge Dolphin 911. We were very well received by RWM Stuart Jeffray, Office Bearers and the Brethren of Lodge Dolphin 911. We witnessed an excellent 2nd degree which was conferred by the Worthy PM's of the Lodge headed by John Hutchison PM. The evening was made special in that the candidate was one of RWM Stuart Jeffray's sons Peter. At the close of the ceremony I had the pleasure of receiving the Travelling Gavel from RWM Jeffray. At the conclusion of the meeting I conveyed warm and fraternal greetings from all the visiting Brethren but more in particular from my own Mother Lodge, Carron 139. I expressed my hope that the Travelling Gavel be in our possession for as little time as possible and look forward to handing it over to the next worthy recipients. Another huge night for me personally.
