Capital’s CAPITAL time!

Sunday, December 8 2019

There must be something in the water down in Canberra!  The Chapter has seen a number of special events over the last few months….. stories below 🙂

Halloween for Kids!

Capital Chapter in partnership with Lodge Queanbeyan St Andrew held a Halloween Party for families at the end of October.  This initiative is part of a program to support local Scouts and spread the word about the ‘Masonic Family’.  I think some of our members enjoyed the party way too much 🙂















A Century of Freda !

A valued member of our Chapter is Freda Ford who celebrated a huge Birthday milestone in November…… Happy 100th Freda!.  Freda was queen for the day during a special afternoon tea in her honour.  The photo below is ‘pinched’ from the blog of the Alchemy Chorus who serenaded Freda on this special day (The Alchemy Chorus brings together people living with dementia, their carers, volunteer musicians and singers for a morning of music-making, story-sharing, laughter and fun.)


















Happy 20th!

Sister Mary Steele was presented with a certificate for her 20 years of service to our beloved order.  CONGRATULATIONS!








New Members

Our Worthy Grand Matron Sister Lorna Dunkley with Her Grand Marshal (Sister Judy Knight), WM Sister Jean Gidley and WP Brother Gary Sweeney, with 6 of our new members that we have welcomed this year!






Donation to Charity

As our WM’s year came to a close, she was honoured to present a donation to her charity this year …. Kids Cancer Project.  Representatives from this charity came along to receive the cheque and to talk about the wonderful work they do for those that need it most.










A very proud time

On 23rd November, our Brother Ben Sweeney was installed by his father Gary, into the chair as Worshipful Master of Lodge Queanbeyan St Andrew.  The following week, Brother Ben joined his mother’s side as newly installed Worthy Patron of Capital Chapter.
