The Provincial Grand Lodge of Glasgow
Lodge 753 Annual Visit
On Monday, 2nd February 2015, Lodge Montefiore 753 welcomed the Provincial Grand Lodge of Glasgow for their annual visitation. The Provincial Deputation was headed by SPGM Duncan Mackintosh who was happy to include in their number Br Stewart Cruickshank, PG Organist of Ayrshire, PM of Ayr, St Paul 204 and an Honorary Member of PGL of Glasgow. Br Stewart is well known for his photographic prowess and the we thank him for the images not only in this report but throughout the site.
The deputation was welcomed into the Lodge by RWM Colin Grant.
After a clear minute was granted and the visitation completed, RWM Br Grant conferred Honorary Membership of Lodge 753 on Bro Archibald Chalmers, PM of Lodge Thistle, Stewarton No. 127, IPPGM of the Provincial Grand Lodge of Ayrshire, and a well kent face in many Glasgow Lodges.
After the meeting the Lodge held a mini Burns Supper at which the Haggis was addressed by PM Dr. Jonathan Glasser. It was with much regret that the Lodge said their goodbyes to Br Jonathan, a stalwart of 753, who, it was announced, was moving to London to be nearer his family. Br Jonathan thanked the brethren for their kind sentiments and good wishes, and assured the Lodge that he would be continuing his Masonic career in London and would visit as often as he could.
