Thornhill 2nd Degree

On the 17th of march Bannockburn Bruce & Thistle were invited by the RWM Sam Harris to lodge Blairhoyle 792  in Thornhill to confer a fellow craft degree on one of their candidates. There were 23 in our deputation, we received a warm welcome for all at 792 and were asked to stay behind for some lodge hospitality, which was greatly received. We had an excellent night at lodge 792 and I would just like to thank the RWM and his office bearers and brethren for their generous hospitality.
