By: Right Worshipful Bro. Kenneth Clay, Senior Grand Warden
Our Grand Master Most Worshipful Brother John F. Gordon was recently invited to travel ‘South of the Border’ to attend the Installation of Officers for the Grand Lodge of Massachusetts. Most Worshipful Brother Paul Fulton Gleason was installed as the 89th Grand Master of Masons in Massachusetts. M ∴ W ∴ Gleason is following in the footsteps of Past Grand Masters like Paul Revere and General Joseph Warren.
The office of Grand Master is a volunteer position; the Grand Master is elected and installed on an annual basis. Tradition dictates that first-year Grand Masters are re-elected for a second and third year before another new Grand Master is elected. As Grand Master, M ∴ W ∴ Gleason presides over more than 26,000 Masons and 225 lodges throughout the Commonwealth.
Our Grand Master was accompanied by Right Worshipful Bro. Kenneth Clay, Senior Grand Warden and Right Worshipful Bro. David Collins, Junior Grand Warden. The three representatives from the Grand Lodge of New Hampshire were accompanied into the Lodge room led by the State Flag of New Hampshire. It was quite an honor to witness this prestigious event.
