At the Stanley Lates Lodge 9683 meeting held on Monday 1st July 2013 the Provincial Grand Master, RW Bro David Macey, made the following announcement:
"Today, VW Bro Alan J Wellan, PGSwdB, stands down as the Deputy Provincial Grand Master in order that he may undertake the responsibilities of becoming Inspector General of the Ancient and Accepted Rite (Rose Croix) for Warwickshire District.
He has served this Province with distinction and brought about great change with his encouraging, kindly and enthusiastic manner. I thank him so much now, but shall do so in full at a later date.
Alan will continue to be very actively involved as a Director of the Clarendon Suites in order to carry on helping ensure their future progress.
I now appoint W Bro Michael C Morris, PSGD, AsstProvGM, as Deputy Provincial Grand Master designate, and I shall invest him at the next meeting of the Warwickshire Installed Masters’ Lodge 4538 on Monday 30th September 2013."
Our congratulations and very best wishes go to both Alan and Michael in their new roles, which we do hope they will enjoy for many years ahead.
