Also in the Deputation from the Provincial Grand Royal Arch Chapter of Fife and Kinross was Grand Superintendent Most Excellent Companion Keith Thomas.

This was the occasion of the Annual Election and Installation of Elected Office-Bearers of Provincial Grand Lodge and the duly elected Brethren were Installed into their various offices by the Right Worshipful Provincial Grand Master Bro. Rev Andrew E Paterson JP.

He then went on to welcome the members of Provincial Grand Stewards and Committee wishing everyone a very happy term in office.

The newly Past Senior Provincial Grand Warden Bro.
