Certainly time flies and another year has passed and here we are again, rapidly approaching our Seasonal celebrations with the challenges of a New Year quickly to follow.
Always endeavouring to keep up with ever-advancing technology with Social Media, Websites, Facebook and my good old friend, the Intertwit, at least it gives me an opportunity of directly conveying to you all the very best of Seasonal Greetings, not only on behalf of myself but also on behalf of my colleagues on the Royal Arch Provincial Executive.
We should never lose sight of the true meaning and real purpose of Christmas and all it stands for - a period of joy and celebration as we reflect on events of some 2000 years ago in a far off land. Particularly at this time, we should enjoy and share the love of family and friends but then in quieter moments, perhaps take time out for calm reflection on events of recent past and events we can anticipate in the months ahead. And with batteries recharged, we may then be better prepared to approach the New Year with renewed vigour, enthusiasm and confidence.
Let me therefore thank you all for the wonderful support you have given to me, to my colleagues and to the Supreme Order of the Holy Royal Arch over the last 12 months in particular. Can I, in return, wish you, your nearest and dearest and your families a very happy and peaceful Christmas coupled with a healthy and prosperous New Year to follow. Thank you for sharing your companionship; thank you for your friendship and I’ll look forward to catching up again with you all in 2017.
A very Happy Christmas to you all.

Most Excellent Grand Superintendent
