Annual Report and Upcoming Kalendar

Scotland South West

Deputy VIll Bro. Robert Redmond 33˚

I have the pleasure to submit my Annual Report.
I was in attendance at all meetings of the Sovereign Councils and Sovereign Chapters within my Province and long may I be blessed with good health to continue to do so. All Installations were carried out by members of Supreme Council, to the very high standard that is expected from our governing body. The attendances at all the meetings have been excellent and it bodes well for the future. A warm Christian welcome to all the many new members of both Orders. Coupled with this, is the congratulations to those that Supreme Council has seen fit to promote to the 31° and 32°.
Whist overjoyed with our new members and promotions on the one hand, it is with great sadness that I intimate the Passing to The Supreme Council above, several of our members from both Orders, all of whom contributed immensely to the success of the Councils and Chapters within Scotland South West.
May  I, without causing  slight or offence on any  other member's memory, highlight t he following:
1.  John Kerr 30°, PMWS, Stewart Lochrie Sov. Chap. No. 197.
2.  Robert Mathieson Wilson 30°, MWS, Dumfries Sov. Chap. No. 187.
3. John
William Bell Taylor, 32° PGC, Solway Sov. Council No. 80
4.  Thomas Pattie, 31° PMWS, Dumfries Sov. Chap. No. 187.

All of whom, along with the other dear departed, gave exceptional Service to our Orders and many other Masonic Orders. Our thoughts and prayers are with the many affected families and loved ones whose loss is greatest.

Can I once again, with great pride thank the Councils and Chapters for disbursing large sums of monies to the children’s charities within their areas.  This is what we do well in giving  to deserving causes.

We in the Province are blessed with exceptional talented Brethren, who carry out with great commitment and expertise, the duties of Secretary and Treasurer and I have no hesitation in once again, giving thanks to them for all that they do. To our Brethren who cannot attend our meetings due to illness, let me just say that we want you to get well and that we miss you and are thinking of you.

Let me conclude by highlighting those members who give of their time to set up the Councils and Chapters in preparation for the meetings and to those who are there to meet and greet the visiting Brethren with a kind word and tea or coffee. Thank you one and all.May I thank our Grand Secretary General, MIll Bro. Alexander Galbraith, 33°, Mrs. Fiona Hoggarth and Jemma Cowan for their support and guidance, during this last year.
