Following a highly successful and enjoyable quiz at our Festive Board, it was suggested that other Lodges may wish to arrange a similar function and would possibly appreciate a copy of the questions and answers used by St Laurence for the occasion.
How to make a speech? Easy for some, more difficult for others. W. Bro. David West gives some tips on how to make a Masonic speech and toast in his article, Making a Speech. “Speaking well can be a delight and a good speech gives your Brethren pleasure, so it is worth working at it.”
There are also a number of speeches which have previously been given by members of the Lodge. They are informative and sometimes amusing; and may provide inspiration when writing your own speeches at those times when writer’s block sets in!
Things don’t just happen in a Lodge. They have to be made to happen.
This book is about sharing the leadership of our Lodge. It is intended to help the Lodge work through generation change. Such change occurs in all Lodges.
If you wish to view a PDF copy of this publication, please contact the Secretary of St Laurence Lodge. It can also be made available in Microsoft Word on a CD or by download from this site, subject to a charitable donation. Other Lodges may thus amend it to fit their own usages and publish their own ritual book for their members.
