Friday night on 12th August 2011 saw Harley Jenkins initiated into Lodge Baddeley No 205 on the Grand Lodge of NSW & ACT register. Twenty six Brethren witnessed the ceremony including the District Grand Inspector of Workings, VW Bro Tom Peadon, Harley's Father-in -Law, Bro Lindon Thompson, visitors from Lodge Bega Remembrance, the Mountain Lodge and Lodge Pambula Daylight. This was only three days after Harley's 28th Birthday. Among the visiting Brethren was W Bro Toby Guess who informed us that 60 years ago to the day he was initiated in the same Lodge in the old school room attached to the current Temple.
