A Christmas Message

As we head into our festive season and the end of 2020 fast approaches, it is probably fair to say that most of us will be glad to see the back of this year.  The Covid-19 pandemic has brought hardship to our doors, the likes of which hasn’t been seen since the last World War and the stresses and strains of living through these times has had an impact on each and every one us.

As a Masonic lodge, we have had to close our doors and cancel all of our meetings for the past 9 months which has a huge impact upon not only the financial health of the lodge but also the wellbeing of our members.  This has included having to cancel our tradition Ne’er Day charity  event which is the highlight of our social calendar and an important fundraiser for local charities. Across the wider Dunoon and Cowal area we have seen the terrible impact the the enforced lockdown has had on local businesses as well as the elderly in our communities, many of whom have been separated from family and friends for lengthy periods of time.

As we start to see light and the end of this tunnel however, Lodge Dunoon Argyll is readying itself to help in any way it can get the town and its citizens get back on their feet.  So, if there is anone out there that you know need assistance and you think we may be able to help, then please get in touch and we will do everything we can to assist.

With these few words I would like to pass on my personal heartfelt best wishes to all of our 335 members, our brethren in our neighbouring lodges in Sandbank, Innellan and Tighnabruaich, and to all our brothers across Argyll, Scotland and beyond.  And to the people of our town, please remember that this lodge is here to serve you so don’t be strangers and never be afraid to ask for our help.

As always you can also keep up to date on the day to day activities of the lodge via both our Twitter account at https://twitter.com/DunoonArgyll335 and our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/LodgeDunoonArgyll335/ and both of these platforms can be used as a means of getting in touch.

Wishing a very merry Christmas and a guid New Year to one and a’
