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.
