After some time looking around for a suitable charity it was decided Seaview Lodge would donate $500 towards The Harry Perkins Ride to Conquer Cancer. Desiree who works as a collector at Path West in Osborne Park would make the ride from McCallum Park, overnight Mandurah and back.
There was a ceremony at 6:00am at the start line at McCallum Park where there were emotional and touching speeches from Cancer survivors and Harry Perkins. The total raised was $4.1 million with 830 riders participating. It took Desi 5 1/2 hrs on her 103 klm ride to Mandurah. The return journey was much harder with the strong winds and weather conditions, but she made it back to the finish line at 12:30. Desiree would like to pass onto all the Brethren of Seaview Lodge a huge thank you for supporting her in this very important cause.
Start of the ride at 05;30 McCallum Park

Another great Ladies Night was held at the TAFE Pavilion Restaurant this year. A few pics from the night out.
Our WM’s wife Gill responding to the toast to the Ladies and acknowledging the traditional presentation of a scarf obtained from United Grand Lodge of England.
RW Bro Trevor Arbuckle (PSGW) presenting W Bro Dennis Lamb (SGD) with his Past Master’s Jewel to mark his year as Master of Seaview.
W Bro Mick Waterson (SGD) after being presented with a Jewel to mark his many years service to Seaview Lodge as Treasurer. The Jewel, which had previously been presented to W Bro Waterson’s father in law, was suitably inscribed and presented on behalf of Seaview Brethren by RW Bro Ian Mansfield (PSGW GMOM).
A very casual Bro Tony Woodcock (note hands in pockets!) being presented with his Grand Lodge jewel by RW Bro Lee Boyd (PDGM) to mark his 40 years in the craft. Tony was initiated in 4 July 1978 and has served the Craft wonderfully well – just a pity we couldn’t get him into the Master’s chair.
