The evening became even more special with several visitors from within and without the district who traveled to be with their fellow countrymen for this historic and momentous occasion.
In West Gate style the work was well delivered with many members participating in the ceremony. Unusual was a much less formal atmosphere in the banquet hour after tributes were received in lodge due to ongoing construction in the temple. Another wonderful repast was offered by brother JW and everyone enjoyed the fellowship and friendship of our Masonic brotherhood.
The refurbishing of the hall continues thanks to the work of many volunteers with a notable few contributing a significant portion of the labour. Thanks to these dedicated brethren who have stepped forward and are the driving force behind the projects that will be enjoyed by many. It is interesting to learn that the financial cost for the work has been surprisingly low and reasonable when enough volunteers can be found to carry out the work.
