Following the official amalgamation of Lodge St Machar Woodside, No:319 & Lodge Bon-Accord No:669, to become Lodge St Machar Bon-Accord No:319, there have been some changes.
- The new lodge will now meet in the Main Hall every 2nd& 4th Wednesday, from September to April inclusive at 19:30 hrs.
- The lodge AGM will now be the 2nd Wednesday in September annually. With the Installation being on the 1st Saturday in October annually.
There is to be a ceremony of Consecration to officially mark the new lodge. This is to be held on:
- Saturday 14th September 2019 at 13:00hrs, taking place in the Main Hall of Freemasons Hall, Crown Street.
This ceremony will be officiated by the Provincial Grand Lodge of Aberdeen City. The order of the ceremony will be announced in the next couple of weeks. There will be a harmony afterwards consisting of a cold buffet at a nominal cost, with details to be advised later, followed by a few speeches with photographs to follow.
It would be great to have a good healthy turnout as this is the first time in living memory in the Provence that this has taken place, with the closest similarity being the erection and consecration of the then, new Lodge Portlethen. It’s uncharted waters and we are sure it will be a momentous and special event for all.
There is to be another Summer Recess meeting for the Brethren of 319, to take place at the RUA Social Club on Tuesday 13thAugust at 19:30hrs. It would be great to have a healthy turnout as there are lots to discuss and go over before the 14thSeptember.
This also gives us all the opportunity to have any queries and concerns answered.
Looking forward to seeing you all again soon…
