The Waikato District rented a stand at the Clubs and Creativity Showcase in Hamilton on the weekend of 8/9 April.
On Sunday the Prime Minister, Bill English, visited the site and happily posed for a photograph.
He wanted to know what the gavel was used for and was instructed how to use it and that, with that in his hand, he was the boss!
He was also very interested in the Freemason’s Charity work. When that was explained to him he was very complimentary and told us to keep up the good work.
The Chair, pedestal, column and gavel are 106 years old and supplied by Lodge Te Marama No. 186.
Speaking Up for Freemasonry can produce another sort of PM!
District GM Waikato.
