Grateful thanks are also extended to V. Em. Kt. Pt. David Smillie on the completion of his tenure as High Priest, during which he admitted 5 new members to the Tabernacle.

A Good Meeting at Forth Valley
Forth Valley had their regular meeting on last Wednesday during which James O. Ferguson was admitted. We Welcome Kt. Pt. Jim to the Order and wish him happiness in his membership.
Ill. Kt. Pt. James G. Carmichael, DT, PGVP was awarded the honour of Companion of Holy Wisdom by the Grand Superintendent and we warmly congratulate Jim on this well deserved accolade.
V. Ill. Kt. Pt. Paul G. Miller, KHW, PGVIIP, having been awarded Knight of Holy Wisdom at the Annual Assembly of Grand College in June, was presented with his KHW Certificate and lozenge by the Grand Superintendent.
A most enjoyable evening was had by all.
A busy day at Claverhouse
V. Em. Kt. Pt. William Workman was installed as High Priest of Claverhouse Tabernacle no. 143 on Saturday 11th March 2017. Hearty congratulations and best wishes are extended to Bill for a happy and successful year as High Priest.
Congratulations are also extended to V. Em. Kt. Pt. Thomas Lloyd on the completion of his year as High Priest.
The Grand Superintendent also carried out the Ceremony of Banner Dedication at the meeting. This was the first time a Banner Dedication has been worked in Scotland and the Ceremony seemed to meet with the approval of the assembled Kt. Pts.
Pictured with Claverhouse's splendid new banner are M. Em. Kt. Pt. Ian P. Duff, Deputy Grand High Priest, V. Em. Kt. Pt. Bill Workman and the Grand Superintendent.
District Annual Meeting
The District will hold its first Annual Meeting in Rosyth on Saturday 27th May 2017 at 11.00am. In addition to the presentation of the District accounts and other general business, there will be a discussion on the qualifications required for admission to a Tabernacle and an Order of Holy Wisdom Congregation for the admission of candidates to that Order.
It is hoped that as many Kt. Pts. as possible will attend the Annual Meeting and that it will be a useful and enjoyable addition to the District calendar. Lunch will be provided after the meeting. Booking forms will be circulated shortly.
Candidates for admission to the OHW can pre-book using the form here.
