Luncheon of The Pegasus Daylight Lodge No 450

As District GM I was invited to attend the luncheon.

32 Ladies and Brethren attended Servantis Restaurant in Christchurch to celebrate 30 Years since the Lodge began. The honour of cutting the anniversary cake went to W Bro Dave King and Mrs Ruth Parkin, wife of the late W Bro Parkin, who were founding members of the Lodge. A very happy and convivial crowd met and enjoyed the Lunch on what was a beautiful spring day in Christchurch.

Pegasus Daylight Lodge meets eight times a year, during the day and provides Freemasonry and social activities for brethren and ladies who prefer to travel during the day. 

The motto of the Lodge is "Daylight Gold for the Old and the Bold”

The name of the main bay east of Christchurch is Pegasus Bay.

RW Bro Rob Angelo may have more information regarding Lodge background and the anniversary meeting in the Lodge room,  I was unable to attend this part of the celebration , hence I have copied Rob in this email and he may choose to add to my report.
