Amsterdam in a different “light”
Freemasonry is OK!

Back to Holland
The Journey back to Holland was one of dual importance to me. For one I hadn’t visited my country in about 2 ½ years and I was looking forward to giving my lovely mother a cuddle and see the homestead again. But the main reason for my visit was to visit the Lodge of my Father, Br. Jan W Treffers for a special night as there would be an EA degree. This would also be the first time that my brother (who is a mason as well) my father and I would be in his lodge.

May began on a sad note for me personally with the passing of my father, Right Worshipful Brother T∴ McB∴.
Although my father had only become an affiliated member of Emerald Lodge No. 49 in recent times, he enjoyed participating in the labour, living in close proximity.

In December, the Brethren continued the cycle of Degrees with a 3rd Degree carried out with the assistance of Very Worshipful Brother J∴ O’C∴ for Brother N∴ MacC∴. We are indebted to VWBro O’C∴ for his assistance with this particular degree but are delighted that our own team is carrying out the majority of degrees in-house and getting more proficient with more experience of the tasks in hand.
Report of Emerald Lodge 49 for the Provincial Newsletter 2015-1
By Brother. M. S. - M∴M∴
I’m delighted to report that 2015 has opened in due form for Lodge 49 and progresses in the busy manner of previous years.
January saw the installation of WBro. C. O. as WM and saw outgoing WM, WBro. N. M. assume the mantle of Chaplain. I’d like to congratulate WBro. C.O. on his installation and thank WBro. N.M. for his two years in the chair.
During WBro. N.M.’s tenure, Lodge 49 established its own in-house degree team and 2015 has seen several degrees performed entirely by members of the lodge.
