Central Division

Greetings Brethren,

A busy few weeks have flown by with Installation Meetings of Lodge

Whangamomona No. 236, Lodge Un ited Taranaki No. 456 together with W. Bro. N. Higham’s 50th and on to Lodge Manaia No. 286.It was good to see a very good attendance at Lodge Manaia and our Divisional Grand Master thoroughly enjoyed his visit. Coupled with the Divisional meeting and the visit of our G. M., M. W. Bro. Mark Winger it’s been “all go”.

        Our next Installation will be to the Research Lodge of Taranaki Province No. 323 on 24th May at the De Burgh Adams Lodgerooms in Moturoa and I look forward to seeing you all there. V. W. Bro. G. Thompson P. G. Lec. Will be the new Master.

        We need to cement our District Project and I would ask each Lodge to nominate their choice. Currently we have a short list of three major projects; the TDHB mental health Upgrade; The Mountain Rescue Team and the Taranaki Scouts. If the Lodges could discuss this and get back to me soonest, I would be most grateful.

        Finally, as mentioned in my visits, New Plymouth will be hosting Camp Quality for the next three years at New Plymouth Boys High. It would be rather good if we can enhance our commitment to this tremendous organization by furthering our Taranaki contribution to the cause by word, deed or any means appropriate; Any Suggestions?
