New Appointments in the Provincial Executive

Following the recent announcement that V.W. Bro Steven M. Vanhinsbergh will be retiring as the Deputy Provincial Grand Master in October, I am now able to inform you that the Provincial Grand Master, R.W.Bro. Edward R. Garty, has been pleased to appoint W.Bro. Peter J. Hyde PGSD to the office of Deputy Provincial Grand Master for the Mark Province of Middlesex.
He has also announced that W.Bro. Darrel P. Palmer PGJD will be appointed as an Assistant Provincial Grand Master.
The installations of both appointees will take place at the Middlesex Mark Annual General Meeting, to be held at the Royal Masonic School for Girls in Rickmansworth on the 18th of October 2023. Your attendance, and that of members of your Lodge, is requested.
Peter and Darrel have both been members of the Provincial Executive Team for a number of years, Peter for the last five years as an Assistant Provincial Grand Master, and Darrel the last four years as Provincial Grand Secretary. Both are well qualified to carry out the duties of their respective new offices.
Undoubtedly you and the Brethren of our Province will wish to join the Executive in thanking Steve for his hard work and dedication over the many years he has served the Province in various active roles, as Provincial Grand Secretary from 2013 to 2017, then as Assistant Provincial Grand Master from 2017 to 2020 and lastly as Deputy Provincial Grand Master from 2020 to 2023. I am sure that Steve will continue to be an active member of the Province, and that we all wish him every success in the many other progressive orders of which he is a member.
The Provincial Grand Master and the rest of the Executive look forward to seeing you all at the AGM and Installation ceremony in October.
