ch0tsaq Northern Bay Of Plenty Lodge Te Puke No 261 Authorising a Lodge to hold a regular meeting on a day other than the day fixed by its By-laws pursuant to Ru I am seeking this dispensation in lieu of a previous dispensation issued to change the Installation date of Lodge Te Puke No.261 which was necessary because the Masters mother had died and the undertakers were using the day of our installation for her funeral service.

It now transpires that our Master who is to be reinvested will not be able to attend on Thursday 23rd may because of personal reasons and has stated he will be able to attend on Thursday 30th May. I therefore request a new dispensation to hold the Installation of Lodge Te Puke No 261 on Thursday 30th May 2019. On receipt of a new dispensation the original dispensation will become void.
