Saturday Night 1st May saw the reinstallation of RW Bro Kim Taylor, PJGW, into the chair of Lodge Cooma Monaro, 164 on the register of the United Grand Lodge of New South Wales andthe Australia Capital Territory. It was an historical ceremony full of deja vous for on the 27th March 1993 Lodge Cooma and Lodge Monaro consolidated as Lodge Cooma Monaro while retaining the number of the latter. The Consolidation Master was W Bro Bernie Alcock and he installed Bro Kim Taylor into the chair at that consolidation meeting just like he did on 1st May this year. The Grand Master's representative was RW Bro Bruce Davies, PAGM and the Grand Director of Ceremonies was RW Bro Warren Bruce, PSGW.
