Square and Compasses Waving Saltire

10th Anniversary of PGLS Web Site

Brethren, 10+ years ago Brother Jim White, Past Master of Lodge Bannockburn Bruce and Thistle and at that time Provincial Grand Secretary, decided it was time that Provincial Grand Lodge be dragged up into the 21st century and started the development of the web site. He first published the web site on the 24th April 2002. Jim was webmaster for the first few years of the site and then due to work commitments handed over the running of the site to myself.

We both listened, and still do, to the comments of the Brethren of the Province and the site as it is now stands has been developed by taking note of these comments and I trust will continue to do so. In this vein, if any Brother has any comments, please either advise me at Webmaster or Provincial Grand Secretary at Secretary. Also if any Brother has any article he wishes to be included, that please also forward to myself or Provincial Grand Secretary.

During the 10 years there have been 3 Provincial Grand Masters, Brother David Dick Laing, Brother John McKenzie and the current PGM Brother Andrew A McKinnon, and I would like to take this opportunity to thank all 3 for their support to the web site.

There have been a number of notable events that have taken place during these last ten years and these are just a few.

If anyone wants to elaborate on these events or have an article or picture published then please forward them to myself.

  1. Lodge St. John Tulliallan No. 598 – 125th Anniversary April 2002.

  2. Lodge Ladywell No. 1474 – 50th Anniversary September 2002.
