SECRETARY'S REPORT
In submitting the Annual report for the year ending 31st August 2019, the following points maybe of interest to the Brethren of the Lodge.

 MEETINGS: - In the past year we held 16 Regular Meetings, we had a total attendance of 375, of which 189 were Lodge Concord Members and 186 were Visitors, this gives us an average attendance of “Lodge” members 11.81 and the average of “Visitors” was 11.62 these numbers are slightly on last years and averaged out about 23.43 per Meeting, so it really is about 2 percent up on last year so we must try to maintain this next year, we also had one Mark Master Mason Degree.

 COMMITTES: - We have in the past year held one General Management Committee Meetings and one Recommendation Committee.

 CLASSES OF INSTRUCTION And Rehearsals: - The Lodge held one Class of Instruction last year; this meetings covered the Passing, Reducing and Closing of the Lodge, in preparation for the Annual Installation of Office Bearers, and 5 were rehearsals of for visits to other Lodges to confer Degrees in particular Lodge Plas Teg No 6898 (ec) on Saturday 7th September 2019 in Wrexham North Wales. May I on behalf of myself and the Lodge thank all the Brethren who attended these Meetings especially our two visits to Wales and all the other Committees Meetings throughout the year for their support and hard work over the past year.

 MEMBERSHIP: - I am glad to report to that we recorded Twelve (12) Brethren paying their Test Fees.

PLEASE REMEMBER THAT ONLY THOSE BRETHREN WHO ARE CLEAR AND IN GOOD STANDING ON THE LODGES BOOKS CAN VOTE OR HOLD OFFICE IN THE LODGE AND THESE MUST BE PAID BEFORE THE ANNUAL INSTALLATION”.
BENEVOLENCE: -
I have been saying this for about thirty years and will continue to say it, I believe it is the duty of every member of Freemasonry that whenever possible to contribute as liberally as they can afford, not only to the Lodges Benevolent Fund, but also to the Grand Lodge and Provincial Grand Lodge Benevolent Funds thus allowing all their Benevolent Fund Treasurers when called upon, to be able to meet all the requests of those Brethren who are less fortunate than ourselves.

 SPORT: -
This year it is my duty to report that we had no Brethren participating in any of this years Provincial Grand Lodge sporting activities.

VISITS -
This year again, the Brethren of the Lodge had their visit to St Deinial's Lodge No 3273 North Wales’s Annual Installation, and our visit to Lodge Plas Teg No 6898 to confer an Exemplification of the 1st or Entered Apprentice Degree.And the The Right Worshipful Master Bro Ian Parker P.M. and the Instruction Class Master Bro John Walker P.M. it was as near to a perfect Lodge Concord Degree they have in Bro John Walker P.M. seen for a long time so congratulations to all who took part to make the visit the success that it was. Also to all the Brethren who took part in the Degrees that the Lodge conferred throughout the year their work was excellent and a credit to the Lodge.

 To all the Office Bearers of the Lodge, I would on behalf of myself and the Master congratulate them on another successful year and thank them on behalf of all the Brethren of the Lodge for the support and assistance they have given to the Lodge. And in conclusion I would like to extend on behalf Bro Allan Jenkins Treasurer and myself Bro Desmond J. Mc Crum P.M. Secretary our sincere thanks to Mr Russell Stevenson the Lodges Auditor for another year of excellent and invaluable work he has done again on behalf of the Lodge as the Lodge’s Auditor.

 And I would now like to wish the our recycled Master Elect Bro Robert Allan Stevenson P.M. a happy and successful forthcoming year as Right Worshipful Master I am sure he will once again enjoy his term in Office and I am confident that he will have the full support from Immediate Past Master me and all those Brethren who, over the past years have taken the good name of Lodge Concord Glasgow throughout all the Provinces of Scotland, and the Provinces Wales, England and Ireland. 

Yours Faithfully and Fraternally
D J. Mc Crum
Bro Desmond James Mc Crum P.M. (Lodge Secretary)
