Lodge "firing glasses" and coasters being engraved.

 

 

Masonic Fire is an old custom which may be derived from that of "Firing" after toasts.

Many of us were introduced to Fire on our Initiation during the festive board that normally follows our regular meetings. Toasts are drunk and can be accompanied by a choreographed routine involving the shot glasses.
The way Masonic Fire is given varies widely around the world, it is a matter of custom and the particular Lodge.
During our September Installation meeting Adams brethren use a very thick based drinking glass at the festive board for the toasts. Always great fun, and something we all look forward to each year even if a few drops are spilt.
Below you can see our new firing glasses being etched and the special oak coasters being laser branded.
