From the Master’s Chair
Our June meeting saw a good attendance of members in spite of the State of Origin football match. The small number of regular visitors enjoyed another excellent night of fraternisation a personal highlight for myself in the form of a 50 Year Certificate.
Presentation of my certificate was by RW Bro Richard Bell who revived many memories of my initiation by my father in Lodge Ferndale at Mayfield on 1st May, 1963. As a 19yr old Lewis I was initiated with Bro. Jack Ryan, licensee of the local Stag & Hunter Hotel. Also present was RW Bro Bruce Bell who also attended our June, 2013 meeting. I again thank the Lodge and Freemasonry for 50 years of enjoyment and fraternity.
The June Fraternal visit is to Lodge City of Newcastle where Bro Darren Rolph (son of Wor. Bro. Arthur Rolph) will be taking his 3rd Degree. I look forward to a good attendance of members able to support their Lodge.
Finally, the July meeting of Lodge Enterprise sees the historic vote on amalgamation with Lodge Friendship No.158. I am confident the vote will be carried and thus allow the ‘new’ Lodge Enterprise No.400 to have a stronger, exciting future.—————-Barry Stephenson Worshipful Master.
