To all Mark Master Masons and Royal Ark Mariners who access this web site over Christmas, I would like to thank you all for your tremendous support during 2016 and wish you and your families a very merry Christmas and a happy, prosperous, but above all a healthy and successful New Year.
I would also like to thank all the Brethren who contributed so much to the Province during 2016. My Co-Rulers, our Past Rulers, the Secretarial and Director of Ceremonies teams, the Installed Masters’ Associations, the Cleeves and Whitehead Trust, the Provincial Social Committee, the 250 Club, our Grand and Provincial Grand Officers and the Masters, Wardens, Officers and Brethren of all Lodges in the Province. The Province could not have seen the success it has during the year without all of you.
We also launched our Mark Benevolent Fund Festival during the year and I thank the Festival Chairman, Committee and all the brethren and Ladies who have already contributed towards its success. We have made a magnificent start to our fundraising and I thank you all for the enthusiastic way it has been received. There is still a long way to go, but let’s make the next six years a proud time for the Province and a period of great fun and enjoyment for us all.
In the meantime I look forward to working with you all again in 2017, and to serving this wonderful Province of ours for many years to come.
My compliments of the season to you all.
Provincial Grand Master
