Two new Master Masons and a Burns Supper

The meeting of the Wyggeston Lodge No.3448, which was held at Freemasons’ Hall, Leicester on Friday 20th January 2017, saw Bros. Morris and  Jennings raised to the sublime degree of a Master Mason in an excellent double ceremony.

The Festive Board was the first time the lodge had held a Burns Night Supper as a nod to the celebrated Scottish poet and Freemason Bro. Robert Burns. The menu consisted of cullen skink followed by haggis, neeps and tatties together with a wee dram of whisky. Bro. Peter Clarke, suitably attired in a kilt, paraded the haggis around the dining room before it was served. Other courses included a parve of beef bourguignon and raspberries served with Drambuie cream.

After the Scottish themed dinner, the newly made Master Masons were presented with the Emulation Book of Ritual with a specially hand drawn insert marking the occasion of their Raisings.
