Annual Report and Upcoming Kalendar

Scotland - North East
Deputy V∴Ill∴Bro. Charles B. Kelman 33°

It gives me great pleasure in submitting my third Annual Report of my Commission as Deputy for Scotland – North East.

I attended all but two meetings of the Sovereign Chapters and Councils this year and assisted Supreme Council’s Deputations at all five Installations.  The warmth and friendship that has been extended to me and Supreme Council’s Deputations from all members of the Sovereign Chapters and Councils in my Province was very humbling and appreciated.  It has been another very successful year in the North East with attendances at all regular and Installation meetings increasing and all meetings were very harmonious occasions.  

Active membership increased this year with 16 candidates/members being perfected or reinstated to the 18° and 6 were promoted to the 30°.

I would also like to congratulate those members of our Rite whom the Supreme Council has deemed fit to promote, I sincerely hope that they enjoy their further advancement.

This year I have to report the sad passing of 17 members to the Grand Supreme Council above from the Active and Non-active lists, we mourn their passing and our thoughts and prayers are with their loved ones.

We have many members who, due to long term illness, cannot attend our meetings on a regular basis but they are always in our thoughts.  I would encourage Brethren of the Province to visit our ill and elderly members of our Rite to show them how much they still mean to us.  They might not be with us at our meetings but without their previous support to our Sovereign Chapters and Councils then our Province would not be in the position it is today.

I congratulate the Grand Commanders, Most Wise Sovereigns and their Office Bearers who continue to deliver our ritual to the highest standard.  The amount of visitors who travel great distances to attend our meetings never ceases to amaze me and I can assure them all that they will always receive a warm North East welcome whenever they come to our Province and we look forward to seeing them all again next year.

My sincerest thanks go to those Brethren who supply light refreshments after our meetings and to all the Brethren in the Province who continue to give so freely to all our charitable activities.

I would like to thank the Secretaries and Treasurers for their continued hard work throughout the year, most of which is done at home and goes un-noticed. I am indebted to them all for keeping their records and accounts in excellent order and for ensuring that everything is done in strict accordance with the requirements laid down by the Supreme Council for Scotland.

Finally, I would like to thank our Grand Secretary General, Most Illustrious Brother Alexander Galbraith 33° and Mrs. Fiona Hoggarth for their continued guidance and support last year.
