Lodge 320's Visit to
Culmore Lodge 320 I.C.
On Thursday March 8th, 2012, 9
members of this Lodge flew off from Prestwick to Eglinton Airport for our
regular visit to Lodge 320 Culmore in Londonderry for their annual installation.
As always, we were collected at the airport and hustled
the few miles to the White Horse Hotel where accommodation had been arranged
once again by the Brethren of Culmore Lodge 320. A quick dip in the pool was
enjoyed by a few of us and a couple of intrepid souls headed for the gym. All
too soon we were showered, shaved and dressed in our finery to be whisked to
Herby's once again to meet a few of the lads and renew old acquaintances. Next
stop was the Lodge where Brother Parkhill was installed into the chair of his
Mother Lodge once again by P.M. Brother Maurice Lynch in a most excellent
manner. Following the meeting a good feed was enjoyed, prepared once again by
Brother Guthrie followed by a number of excellent speakers and no small measure
of witty and humorous stories to set a fine mood for the evening. Thereafter we
retired back to Herby's for a couple of hours of post harmony, harmony and no
shortage of fine
wines and spirits. Time always flies when
you're having a good time and in no time at all we were ready to head back to
the hotel for a well earned night of sweet dreams. Friday dawned a bit drizzly
but unwilling to let the damp weather dampen our spirits we set of to visit The
Maiden City, and as 2 of our companions were visiting for the first time, we
made our usual circumambulation of the walls of the city with a stop at St
Collumb's Cathedral for a short tour. Next stop a regularly visited bar for
lunch and a few beers. Later, we set off back to the hotel for a shower and
change, a bite to eat and back out to the Services Club for a really good
evening, in the company of Bros Parkhill and Guthrie. Saturday morning saw us
packed and ready for the quick flight back to Prestwick to conclude a good
couple of days with our friends from Culmore Lodge 320.
Once again our grateful thanks are extended to all at Culmore and especially Brothers David, Herby, Maurice and Ferdie for services rendered.
Gentlemen, we once again look forward to seeing you in November if you can manage and next March if you can't.
