On Saturday, 28th January 2017 a large number of brethren attended the premises of Lodge Dumbarton Kilwinning No 18 to witness the Annual Communication and Installation of the elected office bearers.

The Provincial Grand Master Brother John Reid McCormack having opened Provincial Grand Lodge, welcomed everyone to the meeting and thereafter a Deputation from Sister Provinces headed by Brother James Pearston Livingstone, Provincial Grand Master of the Province of Renfrewshire West was admitted. A warm welcome was extended and pleasantries having been exchanged the formal business of PGL was conducted and the elected office bearers were then Installed by Provincial Grand Master Brother McCormack in a sincere and competent manner, much to the approval of the assembled brethren.


As has become the usual practice, a dinner was thereafter held in the banqueting suite at which the Principal Toast to the Province of Dunbartonshire was proposed by Provincial Grand Master Brother Livingstone with suitable reply being made by Provincial Grand Master Brother McCormack. This Annual Communication was the last to be conducted by Brother McCormack as his Commission ends on the 2nd February 2017. Many congratulations were extended to Brother McCormack our 28th Provincial Grand Master on the completion of his five year Commission and indeed his many years of Service to this Provincial Grand Lodge. Thus ended another marvellous day in the history of the Province with the Commission in favour of Brother James Forrest taking effect from the 2nd February 2017.
