On Saturday 11th March 2023 after the big snow, the brethren of Eastern Gate Masonic Lodge No 972, Crumlin County Antrim gathered for their first proper Installation since lockdown. The Provincial Assistant Grand Master, R.W. Brother Ivan Gillespie was in attendance to see W. Brother William Minford be installed as the Master for 2023. W. Brother David Rea the Installing Master conferred an excellent degree.
The Brethren had a fantastic day in the company of old friends and new alike. This was helped by our new hall facilities which are now second to none. During the meeting W. Brother Arttie McNaul, Brother Caleb McNaul (His Grandson) and all those who have helped bring this refurbishment to its current state were praised by the brethren.
