New Lecturers in LOL 1908

Two new Lecturers were inducted into the family from a class run by the District in 2006-07. Many months of dedication and patience resulted in Thompson Paden and Gareth Paden being presented with their certificates during the summer. Both men would assure any potential new recruits to Lecturing that there is much to gain from taking this class, not least the fellowship with other Brother Orangemen away from the usual lodge meeting.

Bannerette Dedication – July 2006

On 9th July 2006 brethren of LOL 1908 gathered with District officers and friends to dedicate a new Lodge bannerette in memory of four former members. They are W/Bro R Marshall, W/Bro T Paden, W/Bro H Magill and W/Bro W McIlroy. All four were former Masters of the Lodge, while W/Bro McIlroy held the post of District Master in recent years.
