  1. I also came across Steve. I emailed all the brethren of our lodge about it and took more than 20 orders, which went to Steve (and a great cause!) Nice pin badges too ๐Ÿ‘ Will be proudly wearing mine whenever it is that we next meet.
  2. Greetings Brethren All Our Lodge in Leeds, in the Province of Yorkshire, West Riding, England have just undertaken a very enjoyable trip to a lodge on Dublin in Ireland. The trip was a wonderful experience and highlighted the social side of Freemasonry. Although the ceremony was cut short due to the on-going Covid 19 crisis, we still saw a different ceremony from under a different constitution. The masonic part of the trip can be read about here and the social side can be read about here. I hope you enjoy the read.
  3. That's exactly it. Anyone NOT on the ladder can take part. It's a first degree and the 'candidate' is usually a 'Lodge Elder'. Great fun and as a junior a great way to learn the ritual of Wardens, Deacons, Obligations and WM. We also have a Festive Board, usually away from the lodge.
  4. The tradition in our Lodge is that the proposer buys the candidate his gloves, so usually we donโ€™t get to chose S&C or not. My personal preference is yes. Another tradition, relevant to the discussion, is that the Junior Master buy his team a Masonic gift to be given at The Festive Board after the Junior ceremony. I bought my team each a pair of S&C cufflinks. I also, as part of the Junior team, have received a very nice Masonic pocket square, as well cufflinks and a tie clip. I will sometimes wear the cuff links at a non-masonic black tie event, but it will usually depend on the type of event.
