It took two years to plan and two weeks to recover! (smiles)
Who turned 150 years old this year you say!!
So with this in mind the Ladies and the men of this Zetland masonic lodge equally looked forward to the efforts they had put in over the many months for this day, sharing with many visitors and friends of the lodge "our home"
Me and two lovely members of our team!
The day started with a morning tea and lunch for members and friends of the lodge in a marquee out the back of our lodge.With plenty of room for grand lodge to enjoy a quiet moment before a busy days ahead. However they decided to dress in another building further down and we did not have an opportunity to entertain the grand lodge ladies at this time. But it was ok! because we had a lovely luncheon and many laughs.
This was followed buy the re-enactment and and then placing of the corner stone. pre-dinner drinks again were held in the marquee and so much champagne was consumed it was a wonderful start to a lovely evening.
One of our members Gordon has a beautiful and very successful winery and so we enjoyed his lovely wine during the night. Knights Winery will always be Gordon's and Heathers legacy to this area long after they have gone. Knights winery.
I must now take this moment to mention that our next big event at the lodge is the "high tea" a charity event and this year will be bigger then last years I am sure. last year the theme was "cup cake heaven"
