The years from 1797 to 1815 being just a Province under the supervision of one man - the Provincial Grand Master.
I would like to inform Lodges in the province that a “Travelling Maul “was kindly donated to Provincial Grand Lodge of Forfarshire at the October Quarterly communication.
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.
The aim is to encourage visiting within the province as well as raising money for charity. Below are the guidelines regarding claiming the Maul.
The Maul is now in the hands of Lodge Progress 967 having been successfully claimed at Lodge Hilton St Andrew 1220 meeting of 3rd January.
