Lodge Past Masters.

Brother James Forbes McGurk was initiated on the 9th March 1976, having held many progressive offices was installed into the chair on the first Friday in January within the premises of Lodge Kirkton Hall 1614, Mansfield Street Bathgate as the Ladywell Community Centre was once again not available nor suitable.
Unfortunately on that evening we had a very heavy snow storm and the Installation Ceremony was two hours late in starting, the brethren having to make there way through heavy snow drifts and the minibus had great difficulty in collecting and bringing the ladies to prepare and serve the meal.
