On Saturday 30 November 2019 at Partick Burgh Halls, Glasgow, the Installation of Brother Andrew Mushet as Provincial Grand Master of the Province of Glasgow took place.
Brother Mushet was installed by the Grand Master Mason, Brother W. Ramsay McGhee, who attended with a Deputation from the Grand Lodge of Scotland.
The Depute Provincial Grand Master, Brother Alan Cuthill, was also installed as were the Substitute Provincial Grand Masters, Brothers James McMillan, William Newlands, Gordon Heggie, Robert Shaw, Duncan McFadyen, Michael Macdonald, Richard Anderson and Colin Grant. The remaining Commissioned Office Bearers, Brother David Quinn, Provincial Grand Secretary and Brother Reverend Robert Craig, Provincial Grand Chaplain, were installed and the brethren then retired to enjoy a meal and some harmony.
The ceremony and meal were extremely well attended and the Provincial Grand Master presented the Grand Master Mason with a donation of £15,000 for Prostate Scotland, the nominated charity of Grand Lodge. This brought the total raised for that Charity by the Freemasons of Scotland to £551,000.
After the meal, several toasts were made and replied to as listed below:
