LODGE CARRON No.139 NEWS DESK

Lodge Secretary Kenneth Maclennan

  • Friday 15th January 2021                Brethren, at the meeting of the Heads of Orders on Wednesday, it was unanimously  agreed that meetings of all Orders in Scotland will remain suspended for the foreseeable future. The decision was based on a number of factors – the current rise in cases and in deaths, the speed by which vaccine will be available and administered to all and the fact that we received notice that all public events have been cancelled indefinitely – for example, I received notification yesterday through the Lieutenancy that the Garden Parties in July have been cancelled. I know, accept and appreciate that this will be disappointing news to many, but the health and safety of our membership is paramount. With regard to our Lodges abroad, my advice is to remain closed unless you are 100% sure of the safety of the Brethren and are working in strict compliance with the law of your country. MWGMM Ramsay McGhee                                                      
  • Brother Secretaries                              Regarding the Fees to Provincial Grand Lodge. There has been an enquiry regarding the above. TO CLARIFYThe Lodges would normally pay £50 to cover the fees for the RW Master, I.P.M, W.S.W. W.J.W. and the Lodge. This will now be £25 which breaks down to £5 each. Individual members will pay £5 instead of £10. I hope this clarifies the enquiry Yours sincerely Brother Ronald Hay Provincial Grand Secretary                      
  • Brother Secretaries                                      Just a wee reminder that the price for the Provincial Grand Lodge lottery is still £12 for the year and that the draws will be at each Quarterly Communication. Hope all is well with the Brethren of your Lodges and that we will soon be able to get back together again. Yours sincerely and fraternallyBro. Ronald Hay PGL Secretary                              
  • PGL of STIRLINGSHIRE Lodge Carron No.139 Dear Brother Kenneth, as you will probably know the 275 Lottery has come to an end, but Provincial Grand Lodge has decided if the Brethren wish, to continue with a Charity Lottery. It will run along the same lines as the 275 with 4 prizes being drawn at each Quarterly Communication but at the end of the year whatever monies are left being donated to Charity. I do hope  your Brethren will give this your support      and if any other Brother wishes to join, they will be allocated a number. Could I ask that  your Brother Treasurer takes the names and monies and pass this on to the Provincial Grand Treasurer, if possible, could all  names and monies be in by 19th of January 2021, Yours sincerely and fraternally,Bro. Ronald Hay PGL Secretary     
  • Update from the Grand Lodge of Scotland  Question: will Grand Lodge give all Lodges a year without paying Annual Fees?             Answer: No. first, that would require a motion to be placed in front of Grand Lodge and there will be no meeting of Grand Lodge this year. We would ask that the Brethren continue to pay their Test Fees as normal. Each Lodge pays an Annual Capitation Fee of £33 per member to Grand Lodge. In the majority of Lodges but not all, that amount is included in the annual Test Fee. It is important therefore that Brethren continue to pay their Test Fee in order that the Lodge receives its portion and that Provincial or District Lodges receive their portion. We do acknowledge and appreciate that there may be individual Brethren who, as a result of Covid-19 are experiencing extreme hardship. It is expected that the Lodge, the Province or District and Grand Lodge would all pull together to assist Brethren and their families who experience such hardship but for the vast majority we would ask that they support their Lodge in particular, Freemasonry in general by paying their annual dues.
