The Grand Master & Deputy Grand Master are conferred the Order of the Purple Cross of the York Rite Sovereign College of North America

 

The Grand Master, MWBro. Cluney W.G. Vincent, RWBro.  W.H. John Baird and the Deputy GM, RWBro. Ian A. Murray, attended the 61st Annual Assembly of the York Rite Sovereign College of North America at Oak Brook (Chicago, USA) August 1-5, 2018. Both the Grand Master and the Deputy GM received the Order of the Purple Cross and their rings were presented by RWB John Baird (the Grand Governor for NL). It was a true honour and privilege to be in the Joe R. Manning, Jr. class of candidates with so many distinguished gentlemen and to have a good friend physically present the ring. The Deputy GM was also invested as the new Deputy Grand Governor for NL. A busy weekend but one of so much profit and pleasure. (L to R: MWB Cluney W.G. Vincent, RWB W.H. John Baird and RWB Ian A. Murray)
