The “Maul“ is in memory of Edith Mulholland the late wife of our Provincial Grand Master and with thanks to Masonic wives past and present.

Again the idea of the event is to help improve the awareness of various aspects of Freemasonry within the Province and as usual the event is open to all Freemasons within the Province with a particular emphasis on “young” Masons who may be seeking information and guidance, but there will be opportunities for the more experienced Members to interact with each other. It is also an opportunity for Almoners, Secretaries and Treasurers to bring up any points that they feel need clarification.
Presentations by Bro Iain D. McIntosh, PSPGM and Bro Peter Taylor PPGSecy.
