Clusters for visiting Masters in Office

The “Visiting Masters Clusters” initiative is now beginning to bear fruit as lodges visit each other more frequently.  It really does increase the attendance numbers at installation meetings and festive boards and it is most encouraging to see WMs accompanied by brethren in light blue.

Reviving the practice of visiting has seen bonds of friendship grow between lodges and in some instances visiting has been extended to include special celebration meetings and degree ceremonies.  This initiative is to encourage reciprocal visiting IE if a WM visits your lodge then it is courteous to encourage your WM to visit in return.

There is an example of 2 lodges successfully sharing a social event – which is to be repeated in the future – a joint “Burns Night Supper” is being planned.  This had made me think that perhaps there is room to extend the idea of shared social nights through the clusters.  Perhaps lodges could arrange Ladies Nights, Half Nights, or Ladies to Dine meetings, mutually supported within each cluster and held at Hope St.   Certainly it would be a way of supporting our masonic home and going some way to revive the great socials evenings I’m sure a lot of us remember fondly.

Food for thought brethren – your input and feedback would be most helpful.  Visiting lodges is nothing new, it used to be an accepted custom.  Please give it your best support.

Remember, we are “ONE GROUP IN ONE HALL”
