On Wednesday 24th October 2018 we had the pleasure of receiving a very fine and large deputation from Lodge Camelon No.1456, headed on this occasion by their own RWM Brother John Allison who had accepted our invitation to confer the Fellowcraft Degree on one candidate Brother Arn Fullarton. John must be a very proud man indeed as we were all treated to a first class ceremony evident from the silence in the columns which I have no doubt will have left a favourable impression on our newest Fellowcraft. It was also my humble pleasure to confer Honorary Membership on one of our dearest friends, Brother Jimmy Mackie PM No.1456 and everyone at Lodge Carron 139 are delighted and honoured that he accepted. The evening was also made more special by the visit of Brother David Murray RWM Lodge St Clair Glasgow No.326 who gifted the Lodge with a presentation mallet in commemoration of one of their esteemed Past Masters, Brother Ewan Murray OBE K. St. J, as a token of thanks for Lodge Carron conferring a 3rd Degree in June of this year. This will take pride of place in our new display/history cabinet once fitted. All in all a night to remember for all and a huge thanks to everyone involved. Report RWM Tam Meikle

 

On Tuesday 23rd October 2018 I had the pleasure and indeed privilege of leading a very fine deputation of 13 brethren into Lodge St Margaret's No.548 (South Queensferry) where we all witnessed a thoroughly enjoyable 3rd Degree and it was great to see once again the small differences unique to Lodges in Scottish Freemasonry which make visiting so worthwhile. We were all very warmly welcomed by their RWM Brother John Anderson and all Office Bearers who were delighted to receive us. Our visit was both for pleasure and business the pleasure part was to forge new friendships and support Lodge St Margaret's. The business part was to present their WSW Brother Eric Lister with a token of appreciation from all at Lodge Carron No.139 for the outstanding stone-masonry work Eric completed to the exterior brickwork of our premises during the summer recess. We are indebted to Eric for ensuring that our old building is once again fit for purpose and looking resplendent. A thoroughly enjoyable and successful evening was had by all and I can't thank those enough who took the time to support their Mother Lodge, RWM Bro. John Anderson, Bro. Lister and all at Lodge St Margaret. Report By RWM Tam Meikle

 

On Wednesday 10th October 2018 Lodge Carron carried out an excellent Entered Apprentice Degree on one Lewis candidate,Brother Arn Fullarton. I wish to sincerely thank the degree team for the manner in how they introduced Arn into his first steps into Freemasonry and his attention to each of the lectures was exemplary. It was wonderful to see the look of sheer pride and joy on the face of Arn's dad, Brother Colin Fullarton as he clothed him with his apron. It was also great to have Brother Scott Ryan from Lodge Callander No.588 deliver the Working Tools as Scott is a very close family friend to both Arn and Colin. As always we at Lodge Carron welcome all our visitors but I would like to make a special mention and thanks to two new friends from south of the border who were making their first visit to a Scottish Lodge in the persons of Brother George Brooks RWM and his son Brother David Brooks PM of Fleetwood Lodge No.3711 E.C. who arrived with Brother James Forsyth SM Lodge Slamannan No.484. I hope we made a good impression on them both. A thoroughly enjoyable evening once again had by all who attended.
