Immediate Past Master

/ Bro. William Boyd Graham PM

I was initiated into Lodge St Thomas Kilwinning Dalmellington in 1977 following in the footsteps of my father.  I have enjoyed 40+ years in freemasonry, having worked my way through all the Lodge offices, eventually sitting as Right Worshipful Master in 1987 for the first time.

I enjoy the friendship, social and ritualistic aspects of freemasonry.  Lodge 433 is like being part of a large family. I have also served the Lodge as treasurer.  I am active in the Royal Arch and at present, I am Scribe E of Maybole Union No. 35.

I feel that Freemasonry is not about the individual but being part of something bigger and is an ideal way to meet and gain new friends.
