Congratulations to VW.Bro David Smith of the Provincial Grand Charity Stewards and Almoners Lodge No 1943 on receiving a field promotion to the rank of Past Grand Master Overseer, in David’s own words the story of his promotion is as follows:-
This evening at a Virtual Zoom Meeting I have been emotionally flabbergasted by the attendance of the Deputy Grand Master and the Provincial Grand Master, who joined the Meeting to congratulate me on 50 Years’ Service in the Mark Degree or so I thought !
I had to break off the meeting to answer the front door where the Prov Dep G Sec stood with three envelopes, told me not to open them and return to the Zoom Meeting. On instructions I opened the first which was a Certificate from the M.W.G.Master recognising my 50 years’ service read out by the PGM . The Deputy Grand Master then told me to open the second envelope, what a fantastic experience when so unexpectedly it was a letter from the Grand Secretary stating that DGM was to give me a field promotion to Past Grand Master Overseer, feather KO sprang to mind.
To say I was overwhelmed is an understatement. this therefore is the statutory notice that from 23rd November 2020
I hold the rank of PGMO
Many Congratulations from The Provincial Grand Master, Deputy and Assistant Provincial Grand Masters and all officers and Brethren of the Worcestershire Province for this well-deserved promotion.
