Sandy Sutherland 60 Years of Freemasonry

A full house was present to witness an excellent Past Masters Degree on Wednesday 20th February 2018 at Lodge Balcarres, where Bro. Alexander George Sutherland Past Master of Lodge Balcarres No.1240 (aka Sandy) delivered a faultless Final Charge which was met with a standing ovation then Sandy stated " I was just showing off" to roars of laughter.

After the degree was concluded Sandy was presented with his Jubilee Certificate for 60 years dedicated service to his Mother Lodge and also to his 3 affiliated Lodges which are St Ayles 95, St Adrian 185 and of course our very own Earl Haig 1260.

Also in attendance were a deputation from PGL headed on this occasion by Depute Provincial Grand Master  Bro. William Rocks who gave an excellent speech on behalf of the Province.

Bro. Ian Greig PM of Balcarres delivered an emotional and heartfelt speech to Sandy who is loved by Brethren near and far hence the full house.

Oor Sandy does not drive and can be seen waiting for a bus to get him to a meeting and more times than not he usually manages to get a lift home, He is a true legend in Freemasonry.

l to r, RWM Bro. Colin McDonald, Sandy and RWM Bro. John Heron.
