‘The Provincial Grand Master attended the Provincial Office in Sunderland along with the Provincial Secretary to mark the retirement of WBro Frank Pearce from his volunteer post as Provincial Summons Manager. Frank began this important role back in 2008, when he was asked to check, record, file and where necessary follow up the various Summons sent to Province every month by Lodge Secretaries and Chapter Scribes E.
John expressed his great appreciation for the dedicated service Frank had given to a role that most members would be totally unaware of, but one which was necessary, and particularly appreciated by members of the Provincial Executive Teams – present and past. He presented Frank with leaving gifts by way of appreciation and wished him well for the future.
Frank said he had greatly enjoyed his role over the years which had brought him into contact with many members in Lodges and Chapters and well as in Provincial Office.’
