Mother's Talk: tribute to Mother - 24 May

     "This Month is a very special month for everyone. Why?
      Because this month, Past Supreme Grand Master of DeMolay Australia, John Robb & Blue Mountains Chapter will be doing a talk which we refer to as the 'Tribute to mother'.
      This event is open to everyone whether you are a DeMolay or not or even if you are male or female. On this event we encourage all kids and husbands to bring along their mothers to hear the most touching ceremony that would ever be heard!
      The event is at Orchard Hills Masonic Centre and will start at 4:30pm on Sunday the 24th of May!"

     (P.S. Bring your tissues along with you)
