Evolving with the times

From the first meeting in April 1856, the lodge has evolved and changed with the times and interests of its members, at various times running the Kilwinning Bowling League, a Pipe Band, and the Sunrise Service and Breakfast that spanned more than 50 years.

Each generation of Kilwinning masons brings in new traditions. For the one hundred year anniversary of the lodge in 1956, the official officers’ dress was changed to the kilt. Fifteen years later, Scottish Appreciation Night started as an annual tradition. This event celebrates the Scottish heritage of the lodge and continues to this day. (Being conveniently close to Robbie Burns birthday, this is our annual “haggis bash”.)
