Successful visit to Lodge Loch Lochindaal in Islay.
In the last weekend of April, the brethren of 524 visited Lodge Lochindaal 1592 in Islay, where we gave a demostration of the walkthrough FC degree. During the day, a number of the brethren played golf at the Machrie Links, while the rest visited and enjoyed a couple of drams at The Bowmore distillery. The lodge was accompanied by the PGM and the PGL Secretary. Overall, it was a successful visit to Islay and 524 would like to thank the brethren of 1592 for their invite and warm hospitality.
"East Meets West of The Province" Degree
A total of 9 brethren from 524, attended the recent 2nd annual "East meets West of The Province" Degree, hosted by Lodge The Royal Stuart 1414. An excellent rendition of the EA degree was carried out by the reigning masters of the province, including our own RWM.
As the first edition of this degree was held last year at 524 and was established by Bro. Ian Bell PM, it was intimated that in future years that this degree will be known as the "Ian Bell Memorial Degree on behalf of Marcus Humphrey House" - which is a wonderful gesture by the PGL.
A total of £631 was raised in total for the Marcus Humphrey House.
