Lodge Star of Australia Fraternal: 28 May

Brethren and Ladies of LJR,

Our fraternal visit to Lodge The Star of Australia 200 was very successful. The attendance of the Grand Master was very special not only to the newly initiated brother but also to the brother who received his 60th year certificate as a Mason. Both brethren were surprised as they never met the Grand Master before. Our EAFs and FCFs were called to form a line at the mosaic pavement and were presented to the Grand Master as he greeted them face to face. The camera men had enjoyed their photo shots and the ceremony took a little bit longer causing the ladies to worry as the night was getting late and the food were ready in the south.

After dinner, everyone especially our ladies had a chance to have photo taken with the Grand Master and his partner Judith Morrice. The formalities were completed at 11:30 pm. Everyone had enjoyed the occasion. Brethren, thank you for your attendance and support and our Lodge had shown another great strength when it comes to visitation. Well done and I congratulate you all.

On Saturday, 4 June, we have another fraternal at Lodge Sydney St. George No. 269 for their Installation. RWBro. Rey Porras will also be invested as the Senior Warden of this Lodge. The Grand Master and his partner will be there and I am asking all the brethren to support our Foundation Installing Master on their Installation. Lodge Sydney St. George is Bro. Rey’s mother lodge. Tyling will be 4:00pm; address: Ambarvale Masonic Centre, 101 Wickfield Circuit, Ambarvale 2560. Ladies invited. Dress Code: Lounge Suit with LJR tie. Car pooling is suggested to go there. Please signify your attendance for catering purposes and show your support for RWBro Rey & fraternal visitations of LJR.

Fraternal regards,

Fidel Pamplona
WM, LJR 1045
