In a Masonic Province as large as The Province of Antrim, it can be difficult to acknowledge the service of individual long serving Brethren, who have worked tirelessly in promoting and supporting Freemasonry in their local Lodges and Districts. These Brethren quietly work away in the background and their services are rarely acknowledged formally by Provincial Grand Lodge. Our current Provincial Grand Master, Rt Wor Bro John Dickson has now taken steps to recognise such Brethren officially, and taking into account their advanced years, has decided to acknowledge their years of service by investing such Brethren with the rank of Honorary Past Provincial Grand Stewards. Today two Brethren will become the first recipients of this award and they are Wor Bro Samuel Rodney of Olive Lodge No 467 Doagh and Wor Bro Joseph Boyd of Kilwaughter Lodge No 762 Larne.

A Warm Welcome for Bros Sam / Joe at Kilwaugher Lodge 762.

Bros Sam and Joe have known other for many years and are firm friends. I’m sure you will join with me in wishing both of these worthy Brethren continued health and happiness to enjoy their new honour’s as Honorary Past Provincial Grand Stewards.
