The representative addressing the delegation. This was an important day for VW Bro Dawson as it was his first appointment as the Grand Master's representative and it took place in his own Lodge.

It has long been a tradition in the Lodge to hold an informal dinner gathering for visitors from interstate on the night before the Installation meeting. Here we have brethren and their wives from Bairnsdale, Sydney, Harden and Canberra.

The Worshipful Master wishes to thank all who attended his reinstallation ceremony particularly those who travelled some distance to be present

Until we meet again.
