By mid-August, the pleasant memories of some well-earned R&R in France in the warm sunshine with Gail, fine food and many a fine glass of red wine faded fast, the new masonic season was fast approaching and there were many items waiting in my Inbox…
It was a delight to take the Provincial Secretariat’s roadshow across the Province in August and this series of events enabled myself and W Bro William to meet many Lodge Secretaries, answer your questions, explain any changes as well as expressing our sincere gratitude for the support that the Provincial Secretariat receive year in and year out.
Monday 15th December 2014, it became real…very real.
I held the letter advising me that the RW Provincial Grand Master proposed to appoint me to the rank of Provincial Grand Secretary. Although, this appointment had already been widely communicated after the Provincial Grand Master’s address to Three Counties Lodge in October, it did not prevent me from feeling a mixture of delight, pride and not a little apprehension of what lay ahead.
