Welcome to the Friendly Degree

As we finish 2019 and start 2020 I thought it would be a good idea to send you all, not only a new year’s greeting, but one for this new decade, which is about to dawn

It is traditional at a year’s end to look back at what has been achieved and forward to those things that we hope to achieve. A new decade is an ideal opportunity to really push the boat out and think about longer term goals.

As the new decade breaks, prepare the Province for the coming challenges, not only for this decade, but also 2030 and onwards.

Our Mark Province of Middlesex is a happy and vibrant province, and which is always up for a challenge. I wish to keep on finding new ways to maintain and improve what we have. To help myself and the Executive, I would like you all to think about what more we can do, both to attract and retain our members, but also to have fun.

We have planned a number of masonic and non-masonic events for 2020 in the first month we have.

The newly revitalized Chiswick Lodge our fine dining lodge will be holding its next meeting on 8th January.

There will be a Burns night on 25th January at Cole Court
George Parker Lodge will be reopened on 29th January as a Golfing lodge

Don’t forget the Inter-Provincial Cricket Match on 5th July Middlesex will be hosting so we not only need team members but your support on the day.  

What other Provincial events, what would you like to see?

I thank you all for your support over the last year and on behalf of Jo and myself, I wish you all, a year filled with smiles, love, luck, prosperity and happiness.

Wishing you a Happy New Year with the hope that you will have all the blessings, that you wish for, in the year to come.

Best regards,

Edward R. Garty RAMGR

Provincial Grand Master for the Province of Middlesex
