On December 27th, 2016, Paul Fulton Gleason was installed as the 89th Grand Master of Masons in Massachusetts. Most Worshipful Gleason is following in the footsteps of Past Grand Masters like Paul Revere and General Joseph Warren. The office of Grand Master is a volunteer position; the Grand Master is elected and installed on an annual basis. Tradition dictates that first-year Grand Masters are re-elected for a second and third year before another new Grand Master is elected.
