The Year of a Busy Mason

The Masonic year tends to run from September until June, with July and August being our summer break. There are of course exceptions to every rule, and we do have the occasional summer meeting, but the majority runs September-June.  I have therefore decided to write a blog series to record of all my meetings in the 2023-24 Masonic year, to give people an idea of what a busy Masonic year is like.

So come along with me on a journey.
