An Ode to RW Bro. ROGER STUART MAC – OUR PROVINCIAL GRAND MASTER

BRETHREN, WE HAVE BEEN ADVISED BY BROTHER GARETH TO-DAY,

THAT BROTHER “ROGER” HAS WRITTEN TO HIM, OUR SECRETARY TO SAY,

AS PROVINCIAL GRAND MASTER, HE WILL BE STEPPING ASIDE,

IN NOVEMBER,  AFTER FIVE YEARS OF “SERVICE WITH PRIDE”

 

WE ALL KNOW THAT BROTHER ROGER HAS SERVED US SO WELL,

HIS LOVE AND DEDICATION TO THE ORDER, ALL CAN CLEARLY TELL.

WHENEVER YOU MEET HIM, HE WELCOMES YOU WITH A SMILE AND A GREETING.

HIS MANNER AND DEMEANOUR ENSURE, A MOST ENJOYABLE MEETING

 

ROGER, WE LOOK FORWARD TO BEING WITH YOU ON SOME FUTURE OCCASION,

WHEN WE CAN ALL ACKNOWLEDGE YOUR LEADERSHIP, WITHOUT RESERVATION.

KNOWING THAT YOUR SUCCESSOR IN NOVEMBER WILL, GIVE YOU OUR THANKS

FOR A MEMORABLE FIVE YEARS, OF YOUR BEING IN CHARGE OF ALL RANKS.

 

WE WISH YOU AND YOUR WIFE FREDA, AND ALL OF YOUR FAMILY,

A HAPPY RETIREMENT –  FROM ALL OF THE MEMBERS OF “THE HAPPY DEGREE”. 

AS A PAST PROVINCIAL GRAND MASTER, WE KNOW YOU WILL IN FUTURE ATTEND,

ANY MARK MASTER MASONS LODGE, WHICH TO YOU A SUMMONS WILL SEND.
