PROVINCIAL GRAND LODGE – NEW INTRANTS MEETING
A New Intrants Meeting will be held in the Masonic Halls, Lodge Alexandra No. 1282, 15 Wood Street, Glasgow G31 3BZ, on Sunday, 24th February, 2019 at 1.00 p.m. for 1.30 p.m.
A cordial invitation is therefore extended to all New Intrants who have been initiated in the past 18 months, i.e. since September, 2017.
Should the Master or another senior Brother within the Lodge wish to accompany the new Brethren from your Lodge this would prove most welcome.
Following previous similar successful meetings, this is now an established annual event in the Provincial Grand Lodge Calendar and we would again expect this to be another great opportunity for the new Brethren to meet with the Provincial Grand Master and members of the Commission and give them an insight into the work undertaken by the Provincial Grand Lodge of Glasgow.
We will of course have various speakers and have on this occasion secured the services of Brother N. Grant MacLeod, P.M. 242, P.M. 1814, Past Provincial Grand Secretary of Renfrewshire East.
Dress will be informal.
If Lodge Secretaries could please notify the office in advance of the names of any new Intrants who will be in attendance in order that we can ascertain numbers and facilitate the day effectively.
