V. Wor Bro Tom Muir, Rt. Wor. Bro. Ken Burns and Wor. Bro John Ross

The Lodge was opened at 7.00pm by the Worshipful Master, Wor. Bro. Geof Williams with 28 members and 14 visitors present, including the D.G.I.W, V. Wor. Bro. Tom Muir.
After welcoming all to the special night, the WM then presented a very interesting talk he had prepared on the life of Bro. Robert Burns who was born in 1759.
The talk was followed by an outline of his masonic career presented by Wor. Bro. Jim Richardson. To conclude the formal proceedings, all present were asked to join in the singing of all 6 verses of “Auld Lang Syne” accompanied by the renowned Lodge Enterprise Orchestra.
At 8.30pm the lodge was closed and all present retired to the Festive Board for “Haggis and Neeps” – for those who enjoy this annual treat. A greater number sipped the ‘atholl brose’, a whiskey based drink. Before the haggis could be served, Rt. Wor. Bro. Ken Burns, Wor. Bro. Colin Wyvill and Wor. Bro. John Ross (piper) paraded it to the Junior & Senior Wardens and the Wor. Master for their consideration. After the Ode to the Haggis was ably presented by Rt. Wor. Bro. Burns, the haggis and potato/turnip neeps were served.
Following these proceedings a catered meal of curried chicken and rice, followed by dessert, was served.
The usual toasts were presented throughout the evening and all retired home at 10.15pm after a very enjoyable (as all meetings of Lodge Enterprise are) monthly meeting.
