Lodge City of Newcastle No 170
Further testimony to the ongoing strength of Freemasonry in the Greater Newcastle Region occurred on 25 July when RW Bro Peter Frame PAGM installed his successor Bro Simon Melmeth into the Chair of King Solomon at Lodge City of Newcastle.
RW Bro Gary Herrett PAGM had the honour of representing the Grand Master and was proud to lead a fine delegation of 27 Grand Officers. RW Bro Herrett made a point of vigorously promoting the Grand Master’s ideals, of Humility, Kindness and Generosity.
As well as local and mid-north coast Freemasons, visitors came from as far away as Tamworth, Sydney, Wagga Wagga and Cootamundra to be part of a full lodge room where they witnessed excellent ritual enhanced by some fine music. The happy event concluded with a tasty banquet in the supper-room of Warners Bay’s modern and beautiful masonic building
