Masons out in the Public

Younger generation joining the Memorial Service

The Worshipful Master lays a wreath at the Memorial Service

 

Although it rained earlier in the morning of Wednesday the 25th of April.  The Lambton- New Lambton ANZAC DAY  march was held with the sun coming through the clearing clouds and lifting the Spirit of the day even higher. The members of Lodge Enterprise No.400 joined the Anzac Day march last year and was well received by the estimated 5,000 onlookers lining the road side. We again participated this year and again the large crowd gave us a warm welcome, with applause, as we passed by. The march started in front of the Lambton Swimming Pool and proceeded to the Lambton-New Lambton Bowling Club were a Memorial Service was conducted. The Worshipful Master of Lodge Enterprise No.400, Wor. Bro. Geoff Williams, laid a Floral Wreath in memory of those who suffered the supreme sacrifice, many of them being Freemasons, and also giving thought to those who returned, many badly broken, and damaged, many unrepairable by their experience of war.

  We were very much impressed by the present of school children from 10 schools both primary and secondary. Students from these schools took part in the Service. The Prologue was give in a very professional manner by Miss Isobel Price from St. Phillips School Waratah.  Other students from difference school preformed other item,  An Address entitled, “It’s Not Just Only the Supreme Sacrifice”, Two Poems entitled “Wounded Soldiers” and “The Mask,” and at the end of Service a Coral Item ” “Lest we forget” was performed by the Hamilton Public School choir.
