Scotland - East|
Deputy V∴Ill∴Bro. Alexander Malcolm
It is with pleasure that I submit my report for the
Province of Scotland – East.
During the year I was fortunate to attend most of the
Meetings of the Sovereign Councils and Chapters. I extend my thanks to the
Supreme Council Deputations for inviting me to take part in the ceremonial at
the Annual Installations. To the Illustrious Brethren and Excellent and Perfect
Companions of the Sovereign Councils and Chapters for their warm welcome and
hospitality I thank you and wish you continued success. The ceremonial work in the Province is of the highest
quality and the Office-bearers are to be congratulated.
Once again it was a pleasure to hear the various
Minutes, Correspondence, Annual Statement of Accounts and Balance Sheets. The
Secretaries and Treasures deserve our heartfelt thanks for all they do for
their Sovereign Councils and Chapters. I must also at this time thank the
Standing Committees for the extra work they do, but not to forget the Members
who set up and store away our various paraphernalia allowing us to sit down and
enjoy our Meetings, thank you all.
On a sadder note again we have lost some of our
well respected Illustrious Brethren and Excellent and Perfect Companions, we
mourn their passing and send our very best wishes to their families who miss
On a brighter note “Fiona is back” recovered on the
mend and certainly on the case. I was made aware of this when I opened an email

the post. Welcome back Fiona and a very warm welcome to our new Lady at 94a
George Street, Jemma Cowan. We hope you find the work rewarding and enjoy the comradeship
within the Order.
Mrs Sheena Rafferty I’m sure you will agree

I extend my
grateful thanks to The Grand Secretary General M∴Ill∴Bro. Alexander Galbraith for his guidance and support over the last year
and Mrs Fiona Hoggarth the Office Manager for her patience.
