Consecration of tHE EARL OF DUNMORE LODGE NO. 1686
A marvelous day at the Bayside Masonic Centre. The Consecration of The Earl of Dunmore Lodge and the Installation of Bro. Malcom Murray, 12th Earl of Dunmore as the first Master of this Lodge.
Great support was demonstrated by a full to over-flowing Lodge room and a fantastic banquet with our ladies. It was also great to have so many Brethren attend from inter-state, particularly the District Grand Lodge of Western Australia, under the Grand Lodge of Scotland who conducted the Installation. Support was shown from Tasmania with MWBro. John Slore and members of his team with their ladies in support as well as South Australia with RWBro. Bill Merrill, PDGM. Apologies were received from MWBro. Jamie Melville from New South Wales, however good contingent oh his Brethren were in attendance. RWBro. Paul Holland, DGM of Queensland was also an apology. All the Brethren mentioned are all foundation members. Once again, Freemasonry was at its best showing the bonds of brotherhood across Australia in its fullest display. It was most certainly a privilege to attend this wonderful Consecration. Our ladies even managed to find time to view the Royal Wedding!
