Lincolnshire Masonic Social Committee

The Lincolnshire Masonic Social Committee

The Lincolnshire Masonic Social Committee was formed at the instigation of W.Bros. Patton, Wayman, White and Weston by kind permission of the then Provincial Grand Master, Rt.W. Bro. Geoffrey M. Cooper. 
Its object was to generate the social side of Freemasonry and to encourage the participation of the Ladies in social events. 
In 2003 Constitutions were drawn up and they state:-
"the objectives and aims of the Lincolnshire Provincial Social Committee shall be to encourage, promote, co-ordinate and disseminate information about activities of a social nature; to further the friendly relationship of Brethren and their Ladies in and out of the Province of Lincolnshire." 
The same Constitutions gave voting rights to the Ladies.
Over the years each Lodge has been encouraged to appoint a Linkman whose responsibility is to ensure that the Brethren are fully acquainted with every event arranged by the Committee. 
One of the Committee's principle aims is to organise functions such as the Fun Day for the Disabled and the Youth Concert at various venues throughout Lincolnshire. 
Events such as these should involve every Lodge in the Province and are intended to be for the benefit of the community as well as the Fraternity. 
The Lincolnshire Link originally compiled and edited by W. Bro. Colin Kennedy is now compiled and distributed to every subscribing member by the Provincial office which enables the Committee to disseminate information regarding past and future events.

The Social Committee's activities are considered to be an important facet in the Masonic life of Lincolnshire and should be encouraged by every Lodge.
