92nd Year of Fraternal Visitations
For the 92nd year, the Officers and Brethren of Lodge Enterprise No.400, ventured down the Pacific Highway to the Belmont Masonic Centre to make the annual fraternal visitation to Lodge Star in West-Sedgewick No 189. The Fraternal was led by the Worshipful Master of Lodge Enterprise No.400, V. Wor. Bro. Barry Stephenson and he was accompanied by a good number of his Officers and Brethren.
After the admission of other visiting brethren, Wor. Bro. Arthur Rolph, the Director of Ceremonies of Lodge Enterprise No.400 was admitted and announced that the Worshipful Master of Lodge Enterprise, V. Wor. Bro. Barry Stephenson was at the door of the Lodge and awaited the Worshipful Master’s pleasure to enter. The Wor. Master of Lodge Star in the West-Sedgewick, Rt. Wor. Bro. Rollie Kay said that, “He would very pleased to welcome the Fraternal from Lodge Enterprise.” The Fraternal then entered the Lodge under the direction of the D. of C. of the host Lodge.
After being welcomed, V. Wor. Bro. Stephenson was offered the opportunity to occupy the Chair of King Solomon and carry out the work of the evening, a reading of a lecture on the First Degree. The W. Master and Officers of Lodge Enterprise then presented the lecture.

At the conclusion of the lecture V.W. Bro. Barry Stephenson returned the Chair to Rt. Wor. Bro. Kay and again thanked him for allowing him and his officers to occupy the various positions in the Lodge.

Rt. Wor .Bro. Kay then closed the Lodge and all adjourned to the South to partake of food, liquid refreshments and great fellowship as well as renewing friendships and starting new ones.
