For some first-hand evidence of the Freemasonry’s active and positive involvement within the community, look no further than Bill Kee and his participation in the development of the Cycling and Fitness Rail Trail in Yarram. The trail, which is still being finalised, will run from the old Yarram train station for more than 100 kilometres over the beautiful Gippsland countryside, and feature an interactive display depicting the history of the area.
It is but one of many endeavours Bill has been proud to be a part of during his nearly four decades with the Craft. Bill has served in almost countless roles since joining as a ‘Lewis’ (the son of an active Mason initiated in his 18th year). His positions have included: The Junior Grand Warden, Chair of the Under 40’s Committee, Area Director of Liaison, and a member of the Ethics Committee, The Judicial Committee, the Complaints Committee, and Master of the Lodge four times. To top it off, Bill is currently the Grand Registrar on the Board of Freemasons Victoria.
Bill is married with two children. He loves bringing is family along to events and functions set up by the organisation. In fact, his son is also a member at his Mother Lodge, Tara. He looks forward to the future of Freemasonry, and is always interested in ways to attract more young people and make it as relevant to them as it always has been to him.
