Lodge Canoblas Lewis No 86 Lodge Canoblas Lewis celebrates in force
20 November 23
The Installation at Lodge Canoblas Lewis was held on 17 June, when Bro Neil Milton was installed as Master for the first time. It was a wonderful occasion with over 70 masons present.
The Deputy Grand Master, RW Bro Khris Albano, was in attendance with an impressive delegation supported by Grand Lodge officers from the surrounding area.
The Installing Master was RW Bro Dr Rob Finlay PAGM. It is interesting to note there were another three PAGMs in the lodge, with apologies from two more. This alone is an indication of the strength of Freemasonry in rural NSW. Importantly there were three Entered Apprentices and two Fellowcrafts present as well. Almost all the progressive offices were filled by Master Masons which augurs well for the future.
During the ceremony, a 50-year service certificate was presented to W Bro David Provost, a stalwart of the Lodge.
A banquet was held at Waratahs Sports Club and was enjoyed by all.
