Masons made their way from near and far for the occasion.

Stanthorpe Freemasons held their Installation meeting Saturday, 24 July.

The Stanthorpe Masonic Centre in Farley Street is the second oldest building in town.

Visitors from Warwick, Texas, Killarney joined with a large contingent of Masons from Brisbane and Gold Coast.

The well attended banquet, following the Installation meeting, was held at the Stanthorpe RSL.

Stanthorpe Lodge No 22 Secretary, Justin Liddy arranged a most pleasant visit to Amiens Legacy Centre the following day attended by all visitors from the previous evening’s event.

A chilly day with gusty winds could not dampen the enthusiasm of the many visitors who enjoyed morning tea followed by a hearty BBQ lunch.

Masonic lodges in Brisbane and Redland Bay area participated in the “Water-for-Stanthorpe” project some time ago and were pleased to note the town’s recovery from bushfires and crippling drought.
