On 1 October I had the honour and pleasure of filling in as Grand Director of Ceremonies for my good friend and Brother VW Bro Kit Lee who was unavailable. It was a real pleasure as the ceremony was one of the most enjoyable and well conducted I have attended in some 16 years. Bro Dale Bell was installed as Worshipful Master by his Father W Bro Graham Bell a former Master of Lodge Woden Valley in Canberra. Understandably the meeting was charged with emotion and at times, fun. The Grand Master was capably represented by RW Bro Graham Charlton. PAGM who also enjoyed himself. It was also a real pleasure to see the Lodgeroom filled to capacity with members and visitors from near and far.
