Honorary Assistant Grand Secretary

It is with great pleasure that the lodge takes this opportunity to congratulate Bro. Douglas H. Buck P.M. on his being appointed to the rank of Honorary Assistant Grand Secretary by the Grand Master Mason on the occasion of the Annual Installation of Grand Lodge on 30 November 2017.

In the history of Lodge St Servanus (127 years at the time of writing) this is only the second occasion that Honorary Grand Rank has been bestowed on a member, the previous recipient being Bro. Robert D. Wilson P.M., who was awarded the rank of Honorary Grand Sword-bearer in 1982.

Bro. Dougie was entered, passed, raised and advanced in Lodge St Servanus in 1972.

His enthusiasm was such that he was installed as an Office-bearer at the first opportunity and was elected to the office of Right Worshipful Master in 1979, his installing Masters' being Bros. Robert Beveridge, Colin T. Wyse and Alfred S.F. McGhie.

Apart from a few short breaks Bro. Dougie has, since 1982, served as Lodge Secretary.

Additionally, with the exception of a six year break in the 1990's, he has also organised the Annual Burns Supper.

This six year break was a result of Bro. Dougie moving through to Ayrshire due to work commitments and whilst there he affiliated to Lodge St David (Tarbolton) Mauchline No. 133, the mother lodge of Bro. Robert Burns, where he served as Director of Ceremonies.

On his return to Alva in 1998 Bro. Dougie picked up where he had left off as though he had never been away.

In recognition of his services during his tenure in Mauchline the members of Lodge St David (Tarbolton) Mauchline awarded Bro. Dougie with Honorary Membership of the Lodge.

And so it has come to pass that a Burn's enthusiast and proud Scotsman holds two honorary ranks, the former from the mother lodge of Bro. Robert Burn's himself and the latter from the Grand Lodge of Scotland awarded on St Andrews day!

Congratulations Dougie from all your friends and colleagues.

On 5 February 2018 on the occasion of the annual visitation from the Provincial Grand Lodge of Stirlingshire the RWPGM Bro. Alistair T. Marshall presented Bro. Dougie with his Diploma and Jewel as Honorary Assistant Grand Secretary. He said it was an honour to make this presentation and that it was well deserved recognition of Bro. Dougie's commitment to his Mother Lodge St Servanus No. 771, the Provincial Grand Lodge of Stirlingshire and the Grand Lodge of Scotland.
