On Friday 14 September 2018 the Provincial Grand Master, Brother James C. Peddie, led a large and distinguished deputation to Lodge St. John, Whiteinch, No. 683. This deputation consisted of Provincial Grand Lodge Office Bearers from the Province of Glasgow and some of our Sister Provinces.
The purpose of this visit was to present a Jubilee Certificate to Brother Alistair Henderson, a Past Master of that Lodge, to recognise his 50 years of service to the Craft. Brother Henderson is the Immediate Past Provincial Grand Master of the Provincial Grand Lodge of Glasgow.
After presenting the certificate to Brother Henderson, the PGM asked Brother William C. Shepherdson, a Past Provincial Grand Master, to give an account of Brother Henderson’s time as a Freemason.
Brother Shepherdson gave a full and interesting synopsis of Brother Henderson’s half-century of service and spoke of his many achievements.
Brother Henderson then replied and informed all present of the long standing connection between his family and his Lodge with his Grandfather having joined exactly 98 years before.
After the presentation the Master and Brethren of Lodge Bailie Nicol Jarvie, No. 1036, from the Province of Perthshire West, conferred a F.C. Degree.
The attending Brethren then retired to enjoy Harmony provided by Brother John Wilson, the Master of Lodge St. John, Whiteinch, No. 683, and his brethren.
Many congratulations to Brother Henderson!
