A big thank you from newly installed RWM Bro Patrick Rattray who was installed as Master of Lodge Thane of Fife No 781 last night at our annual installation ceremony, to the installed Office Bearers who will assist him for the ensuing 12 months.
Congratulations also to the Installing Masters of Bro Jim Paton PM, Bro Alex McFadyen PM, Bro John Drummond PM and Bro Duncan Graham PM who did an excellent job of overseeing the installation of the Master and Office Bearers.
Also present on behalf of the PGLFK was SPGM Bro Ian Cockburn who congratulated all on an Excellent Installation Ceremony.
RWM Bro Pat thanked the visitors for their attendance and special thanks was passed to visiting RWM Bro Jack Alexander from Lodge St John Shotts No 471 for travelling to the Province to witness the ceremony.
After the meeting, a hot buffet was presented in the downstairs lounge supplied by Ann Keenan of the Glen Tavern public house in Cowdenbeath which was well presented and received by the Brethren.
RWM Bro Pat Rattray presented the 11pm Toast to absent brethren for the brethren who were living and working abroad and away from home, to the sick, infirm and ill brethren who were not able to attend and to brethren who had lost loved ones in the last year. Finally to the 14 brethren who had passed to the Grand Lodge above since our last installation meeting.
Altogether a really enjoyable evening, very different to what would normally be presented, but very warm and enjoyable with the usual festivities and banter well to the fore.
