The afternoon also saw PM Neil Horne accorded the great honour of being presented with the Honorary PGL rank of Substitute PGM by reigning PGM, Bro. Douglas T. Philand and PGL Rep for the day, SPGM, John Stewart, while Bro. Donald Malloch was presented with a gift in recognition of his sterling service as Substitute Master over the years.
A great festive board then ensued with many fine speeches, toasts, refreshment and music. The new RWM said he was delighted to see several members return to the Lodge for the first time in a while. Likewise, he expressed appreciation to everyone who made the effort to come along. A great day was had by all. Special thanks to the Installing Masters and Archie MacCulloch for organizing everything. Also, thanks to Colin and Scott for the 1st class meal and the stewards who served it and for dealing with the high increase in numbers so well. Thanks also to Br. Grant H. Nicholson, for the photos!
