Philadelphia, PA - December 24, 2013 - Grand Polemarch William "Randy" Bates, Jr., Esq. announced today the appointment of Gilbert D. Brown, III, Sr. Province Vice Polemarch, Western Province to the position of Province Polemarch, Western Province.
Brother Brown succeeds Brother Samuel B. Knight of San Diego, California, who has served faithfully as Province Polemarch. In response to the appointment, Brother Brown said; "I want to thank you for my appointment as the 23rd Western Province Polemarch. I am honored by the faith, trust, and confidence you have placed in me, and look forward to becoming a part of the 32nd Administration team." The appointment is effective January 1, 2014.

Grand Polemarch said; "We are grateful to Brother Samuel B. Knight for his outstanding service as Province Polemarch of the Western Province. I was happy to share some quality time with Brother Knight on our visit to South Korea early in the year. It was a great learning experience to me and a trip I will always remember. While I reluctantly accepted his resignation, I know that his family will be pleased with his decision to devote more time to them. May his days ahead be filled with great joy."

Brother Gilbert Brown has been an active brother in the Western Province, who has served in many capacities that qualify him for his new position. We look forward to great things in the West as we continue our journey.

Yours in the Bond,

William "Randy" Bates Jr., Esq.
Grand Polemarch
