From The Masters Chair
Once again our Christmas Meeting was a wonderful festive occasion for brethren, ladies, guests and the children celebrating the Spirit of Christmas.
The South was beautifully decorated with a Christmas tree and decorations all around the room. The tables were also magnificently adorned with coloured Christmas streamers and 2 little snowmen on each table. These snowmen were made especially for the tables by the Mrs Desma Stephens, wife of V. Wor Bro Brian Stephens PDGIW.
During the evening Bro. S. Claus( Rt. Wor. Bro Ken Burns) from the North Pole Lodge No1 paid us a visit. He had heard that we were holding this meeting, and he knew that we had some very well behaved children present, so he dropped in to give the children gifts that were received with much enthusiasm.
I take this opportunity once again to thank the ladies who prepared the meal for all of us to enjoy and for their hard work and assistance in making this night such a huge success.
Our prospective candidate Mr Joel Hartcher, his wife Loren and their three children were guests for the evening. His response to the night is recorded below in the e-mail I received from him the next day:
I also take this opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Safe and Happy New Years and I look forward to sitting with you in Lodge in 2015.

I hope and trust this email finds you well.
I just wanted to extend a huge thank you for having my family and myself at Lodge Enterprise’s December meet. We all had such a wonderful time sharing a meal, singing and partaking in the festivities of the evening. We were made to feel most welcome.
It was so clear that values of charity, generosity and community were running high. All values that are held in high importance by Loren and myself.
I thank you and Lodge Enterprise again for having us and so sincerely spoiling us (most especially the kids) with you welcoming spirit and generosity. Thank you.
In your debt,
Wor.Bro. Arthur Rolph – Worshipful Master
