As a result of interest and support from the local community, Lodge Buchan St John No. 636 will host an Open Day on Saturday 30th April between 10am and 2pm at Broxburn Bowling Club.
If you've been interested in Freemasonry and what goes on behind the scenes, here are the answers. So what happens in a Masonic Lodge? Meetings have a formal masonic structure conducting the same administrative business as any club e.g minutes, financials, correspondence, reports, etc. But uniquely the major part of most meetings is the processing of new members. This is done in a series of ceremonies, all new members experience, to reach full membership and become Master Masons. The ceremonies are the means of teaching the history and principles of Freemasonry. Other matters at the meetings include charity and social activities of the Lodge. Afterwards there is, sometimes a shared meal or a pie and a refreshment with some social time.
