Saturday evening, 21st September 2019 saw the re-installation of RW Bro Malcolm Privett into the chair of Lodge Bega Remembrance in the presence of RW Bro Allan Brown, PAGM, who represented the Grand Master of the United Grand Lodge of NSW & ACT. The Installing Master on this occasion was W Bro Russell Cochrane who stepped in at the last minute to replace W Bro David Porter who the previous evening had been admitted to hospital. Fortunately he was discharged a few days later. W Bro Cochrane carried out an excellent ceremony which was attended by Masons from Lodges which meet in Cooma, Bombala, Pambula and Moruya Masonic Centres. The Grand Officers present included both DGIW's for Districts 49 A and B.
Missing from this photo are VW Bro Bob O'Callaghan, DGIW 49A< who was providing music in the lodgeroom and VW Bro Bernie Alcock, PDGIW, who was acting as Senior Warden.
The Loyal Toast.
As usual, the Festive Board provided an opportunity for Brethren to catch up with old friends and meet new ones. Unfortunately due to family and other committments the attendance was lower than normal.
(Other photos are expected to arrive soon)
