On Tuesday the 4th of March, Caldercruix St John 1314 RWM Bro Johnny Russell had great pleasure in receiving the RWM of Lodge Heatheryknowe 1461 Bro Kenny Fowley and his deputation into the Temple to confer an exemplification of the Entered Apprentice degree on 1314’s newest affiliated member Bro Malky McNeil.
1461’s deputation was enhanced by the presence of the RWM of New Monkland Montrose 88 Bro Bob Moudie and the RWM of Lodge McLaren 1688 Bro Ronnie Fraser.
This was a very special occasion for both lodges as this was the first time that Heatheryknowe 1461 had visited Caldercruix St John 1314 for thirty two years and on that last visit it was also the Entered Apprentice Degree which was conferred. On that occasion the RWM of 1314 was PM Bro Billy Murray and the RWM of 1461 was PM Bro Henry McCorkell. It was very fitting that both brethren were in attendance at last night’s degree too.
The degree was conferred to an exceptionally high standard and I cannot praise the degree team highly enough as it was without doubt one of the best degrees that I have had the pleasure of witnessing.
A vote of thanks was conveyed to the 1461 degree team by the RWM of New Monkland Montrose 88 Bro Bob Moudie and also our own RWM Bro Johnny Russell. The WSW of Heatheryknowe 1461 Bro Danny Miller expressed a suitable reply.
The labours of the evening being over all brethren retired to the upstairs lounge for well-deserved refreshment.
