On Saturday 16th of November I attended Lodge Galen No 1285 Annual Installation along with PM’s Robert G. Geddes and John Wilson. Substitute Provincial Grand Master, Brother James McMillan, was in attendance, He was accompanied by Brother Alan Raeburn, Provincial Grand Sword Bearer, and Brother Alf Goldberg who is a member of the Board of Stewards.The Provincial Deputation witnessed Brother Allan M. Dawson being installed as Master of the Lodge by Brother David Quinn and Brother Gordon McPhee who are both Past Masters of Lodge Galen. The Master’s son, Brother Robert Dawson was also installed as Depute Master of the Lodge. The Provincial Grand Master, Brother Andrew Mushet, was also in attendance as he is a Past Master of Lodge Galen along with fellow Galen Past Masters, Brother David Quinn (Provincial Grand Secretary) and Brother Frederick G. Quinn (Provincial Grand Almoner). The Installing Masters performed their duties to a very high standard and the Deputation then retired before enjoying some harmony with the members of Lodge Galen.
