Provincial Grand Master’s Christmas Message
As this issue of our quarterly magazine, G, will be landing on your doorsteps so close to the Festive season, I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has supported me both at, and since, my Installation on the 6th of October.
By the time you read this, those attending the Promotions meeting will have heard about the various plans that the new team are preparing to take the Province forward, and I hope you will be able to support the various initiatives as they unfold.
For now, I would just like to send my sincere seasonal greetings and best wishes to all of you, your wives, or partners, and families, for a very Happy Christmas and a healthy and prosperous New Year.
As Freemasons, we all know that family and friends should be our first priority. If we get the chance to “reconnect ” with those that we may have drifted away from, I hope we all take the opportunity to rekindle relationships and offer help, assistance, or just some company to those that could benefit from our support and friendship.
