On Saturday 29 th September at 3.00 pm the Provincial Grand Lodge will host a Ceremony of Remembrance in Lodge Dumbarton Kilwinning No. 18, Church Street, Dumbarton.    
This is part of a Scotland wide act of Remembrance organised by The Grand Lodge of Scotland and Poppy Scotland to mark the end of World War 1.   
Stewart McLean PM and myself will attend and will lay a 147 Poppy Wreath.  
If you would like to attend please contact me for further details.  This is open to family and friends.


GLos and Poppy Scotland have produced a lapel badge to mark this year and I have a supply for sale at £3.00 each.

The Lodge Annual Dinner Dance will be held on Friday 19th October at 7.00 for 7.30 pm.Some tickets are available for this popular event.

The Master James M. Anderson and other members have organised a Sponsored Walk in aid of the Transplant Unit at Edinburgh Royal Infirmary on the 13th October, with John Mackie doing the same on the 14th October.   

The Unit serves the whole of Scotland and Lodge members have cause to be grateful to them, hence the support.    


If you would like to join them or contribute to the fundraising effort, please contact me for more details.
