A very enjoyable and successful night was had by all for the Installation of Bro. Ross Henry Newton as our new Worshipful Master and the investiture of Office Bearers.
There were a total of seventy five Brethren in attendance which included members of Seaview Lodge, the Grand Master + 15 Grand Officers and we were also thrilled to have in attendance the Worshipful Masters from Carrington, Justice, Hale, Swan, Western Districts, Lord Nelson, Golden Endeavour, Avalon, Wanneroo, Cambria and SEWA plus Past Masters from Wanneroo, Carrington, Capricorn, Cambrai, Cornucopia, Lord Nelson, Swan, Kingsley Day, Heritage, Scarborough Wembley Downs, Wannebe (NZ) and Unattached with a very special mention for the two Master Masons from Capricorn who travelled a long way to be with us. The ceremonial work was performed in an exemplary and heart felt manner by all involved and which all Brethren should be proud of. The Lodge was closed after greetings by W. Bro. Hughes of Heritage Lodge on behalf of all Visitors.
The Festive Board was a fun night with wonderful fare supplied by our caterers and enjoyable refreshments to wash it all down, the speeches and toasts were terrific and performed in a warm and very sincere manner – which of course is our want in the South. The raffle was also very successful and some excellent prizes were won, raising $1060 which will be presented to the Scarborough Surf Life Saving Club for the purchase of an extra rescue board.
