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 below 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!
