An excellent response to Royal Arch Provincial honours

The month of May saw written communications from Provincial Grand Chapter arriving through a number of letter boxes within the membership of the South Eastern Group. Those communications were indeed directed to those pleasantly surprised recipients who had been deemed as having given their valued contribution towards their Chapters and Masonic involvements, earning them recognition by way of a Provincial honour in the 2017 selections.
