On the 1st February 2016, Bro. Andrew Steele invited a guest to the lodge, W.Bro Darren Phipps of Marengo Lodge No.138, Illinois, USA. W.Bro Darren has now unexpectedly returned the favour by delivering to Bro. Andrew an intricately designed and produced leather regalia case.
Pictured above is the case, complete with working tools, and is large enough to fit Masonic regalia, which will surely stand out from the traditional black cases as usually seen in the lodge locker room.
The design is taken from the lodge logo, which depicts the granite quarries in Enderby, Leicestershire along with the lodge moto "sermons in stones, good in everything".
On Monday 7th November 2016, Granite Lodge welcomed a new member who came from an unusual source, Bro. Jason was the first ever member to have enquired about joining the Lodge through social media.
After seeing one of the lodges Facebook posts, Jason contacted the lodge, and after many meetings and social gatherings entered the lodge for the first time. The evening was well attended and was followed by a superb festive board and entertainment.
