with the Lodges now back in full swing it's good to be back to our fraternal bonhomie and striving to make our organization more worthwhile for both members and the wider community at large. Congratulations to Alan Johnstonas W. M/ of Patea Kilwinning Lodge No 18, his second term and my first Installation as Dist. G. M. April 1st will be a full board Installation for Lodge Whangamomona No. 234 with visitors at 7.00 p.m.and also Lodge United Taranaki on the 22nd (Saturday) April.
Congratulations to W. Bro. N. Higham P G Swd. B. on reaching 50 years of Freemasonry; a wonderful achievement with a presentation to follow the Installation at Lodge United Taranaki. Divisional Conference is to be held at Wanganui Racecourse on 29th April (all welcome!) followed by a visit from the Grand Master to Inglewood (Lodge Whangamomona) on 30th April at 11 a.m. Tea and bidcuits will be available. I urge everyone to attend this as I have no doubt the M. W. Bro. Winger will be addressing key issues facing Freemasonry in general and, of course, Taranaki in particular. Also on the agenda will be a seed funding from the Freemasons Charity towards a district project. We need to think of a worthwhile project which we can enhance by fundraising and utilising the Taranaki Masonic Trust to get behind it.
