To the Companions of East Lancashire
My dear Companions,
On behalf of Carol & myself I send to you all our heartfelt thanks for the beautiful Cut Glass gifts of a decanter & glasses also the vase suitably engraved to commemorate or some might say celebrate my stepping down as Provincial Grand Summus on Saturday.
They are a tremendous gesture & something that Carol & I will treasure as a reminder of all the good times we have had & all the many friendships we have made through the years we have been involved with the Ancient & Masonic Order of the Scarlet Cord in East Lancashire.
The virtual meeting where Rt.Dist.Comp.Allan was appointed as the new Summus was extremely enjoyable & we have received many, many messages of congratulations.
It was a pleasure to see Trevor & David appointed as Deputy & Assistant to Allan & to put the cherry on cake Ian given a field promotion to V.Dist.Comp. all three of these appointments thoroughly deserved.
Last of all another big thank you for the generous donation of £600.00 to the East Lancashire Mark2021 Festival in my name.
Again we thank you most sincerely for your gifts & hope that you all stay safe & well until we all can meet once more.
With kind & sincere fraternal regards,
Howard & Carol
