Brethren, Please note below a reminder of the Summer LOI which will be held every Saturday throughout the summer. This is an opportunity for all Brethren to practice their ritual, particularly for those about to take up a new office. However, there is much more than that on offer. Each week a discussion is held on a particular topic of interest to all and also a question and answer session where any questions you might have can be addressed. This is an invaluable resource and is run by some of the most experienced Past Masters in the Province. I recommend it very strongly. It is for your benefit and is intended to improve the knowledge of all. Please make every effort to attend.
