On behalf of the Senior Members/Wives/Partners/Widowers/Widows who were due to attend the Seniors Treat in March we would like to take the opportunity to thank RWM Brother Jim MacAulay and All the other Brethren who assisted in the pick up and delivery of food parcels (social distancing being observed) it is very much appreciated by all. Thank You. Also Brother Ian Thomson (TBBK) would like to thank Brother Almoner Charlie Macvicar for his kind gift.
Message from RWM Brother Jim MacAulay It was great to see several Brethren and good ladies today to delivery the goodie bags from myself and the Brethren of the Lodge it certainly put a wee smile and a bit of joy into their day (with social distancing being observed) I would also like to thank the ladies of Asda Stenhousemuir for their assistance. Many thanks to all the Brethren who greatly assisted in the delivering of packages to our Senior Brethren/Partners/Widows/ Widowers
It is obvious in these trying times that the normal charity events are not taking place and that Strathcarron is struggling for donations.
Unfortunately we cannot have a normal cheque presentation but it is more important that the money is handed over and put to good use as soon as possible. I intend to contact the hospice over the next few weeks and also the Falkirk Herald and see if they can print the story and possibly have some photos taken I have been totally blown away with your response and support and cannot thank you all enough, this, to me, is what Freemasonry is all about. Well Done All, Yours Fraternally, Brother Leonard McComb PM Lodge St John Slamannan No.484"
Installation RWPGM Brother Gordon Sewell Brethren, it will come as no surprise to anyone that the above event is cancelled until further notice. There is the usual speculation about dates etc, but this is exactly what it is. No one knows. Best we can all do is check the National News and emails from PGL Fraternal regards, Nicol Scobbie Provincial Grand Secretary
