If any brother is intending to participate in some entertainment or social event that he thinks other members (or even selected members e.g. motorcycle riders or music lovers) may enjoy, send out an Email or give them a call. I am sure you will appreciate how this can increase friendships and lodge harmony.
As the festive season approaches I encourage (I hesitate to say direct), all members to examine the list and select at least 2 members who you don’t know or at least haven’t had contact with in for a long time and give them a ring and wish them the compliments of the season. A phone call (not a text or Email unless it is to a group of people) and a personal introduction once again should support Scotia’s fraternal aims.
We have also commenced work on finalizing the years of developing our Ritual for final acceptance by the Brethren and Grand Lodge. I commend all the Brethren who have participated in this process in the past and while I am aware of some reluctance to formalize this document, I once again believe it is for both the harmony of the Lodge and our new members that this work needs to be completed. I believe that the 1st degree is just about there and I am hopeful the other 2 degrees won’t be too far behind. The installation Ritual should be completed prior to our next Installation.
