Capital’s First Birthday

Monday, September 25 2017

A wonderful day to celebrate our 1st Birthday!  Canberra turned on the weather and the members welcomed our friends from the Grand Chapter of NSW & ACT, Sydney District Grand Committee, Croydon Park, Bathurst, Wollongong and Illawarra Daylight Chapters.  Although it was our Birthday, we were very pleased to be able to have representatives  from HeartKids and Masonicare to receive our Cheques (totalling $7,575.00) and hand made goods.

The meeting was also the official unveiling of the Chapter’s new carpet which was dedicated on the day by our Worthy Grand Matron Sister Janelle Love.

Unfortunately for our visitors, a bushfire closed the Hume Highway and many had to find the ‘long way’ home.  They arrived safely, although for some it was an extra long day.  Thank you all for sharing the day with us.
