Greetings from R.W.M. Bro. Raymond Campbell Dow

Welcome to the website of Lodge Robert Burns No.440. I would like to thank you for visiting this website and hope that you find it both informative and interesting.
I would also like to thank the Brethren of my Mother Lodge for electing and installing me to this exalted position, for which I will be eternally grateful and can I wish the Brethren who have been installed as the Office Bearers of the Lodge my sincere congratulations on there respective appointments.
I could not have started my year as R.W.M. of this fine lodge in better fashion and I would like to thank everyone who attended my Installation and made it such a special day for me.
To the Brethren of the Lodge, we have had a great start to my tenure and I hope I can count on your continued support throughout this year as we endeavour to keep the name of Lodge Roberts Burns No.440 to the fore.
Ther's mony a badge that's unco braw;
Wi' ribbon, lace and tape on;
Let kings an' princes wear them a' —
Gie me the Master's apron!
The honest craftsman's apron,
The jolly Freemason's apron,
Be he at hame, or roam afar,
Before his touch fa's bolt and bar,
The gates of fortune fly ajar,
`Gin he but wears the apron!
For wealth and honor, pride and power
Are crumbling stanes to base on;
Eternity suld rule the hour,
And ilka worthy Mason!
Each Free Accepted Mason,
Each Ancient Crafted Mason.
Then, brithers, let a halesome sang
Arise your friendly ranks alang!
Guidwives and bairnies blithely sing
To the ancient badge wi' the apron string
That is worn by the Master Mason!
Fraternally
Bro. Raymond C. Dow R.W.M.
