Special Meeting at Bannockburn
Freemasons from all over Scotland descended on the Allan Church of Scotland on Friday 20th June 2014.
Members of Lodge Bannockburn Bruce and Thistle No 312 and those from Lodge Stirling Royal Arch No 76 marched in regalia from their Lodge to the church.
The Most Worshipful Grand Master Mason had more lavish transport when he literally dropped in by helicopter to visit the Province for the third time in 2014.
Lodge Bannockburn Bruce and Thistle No. 312 hosted a reigning Right Worshipful Provincial Grand Masters Entered Apprentice Degree to mark the 700th Anniversary of the Battle of Bannockburn. Eighteen reigning Right Worshipful Provincial Grand Masters from various Sister Provinces conferred the Degree ceremonial on the son of the Master of the host Lodge, Lodge Bannockburn.
A fine collection of £855.00 was taken to be dispensed to Charities by the choice of the host Lodge. The RWPGM takes this opportunity to say a big thank you to the Host Lodge, the officials of the Allan Church of Scotland, the Reigning RWPGM’s who attended and took part and all those Freemasons who supported the event and made it a memorable occasion.
The RWM Brother James McCormick took the opportunity to confer honorary membership on the RWPGM Brother Andrew A McKinnon at the end of the evening.
