Bro. Graham Allansons’ first Fraternal Council Meeting, as Grand Master, was held in Nelson, his Mother Lodge. Upon arriving at the Lodge Rooms, he was greeted with a, ‘This Is Your Life – Memory Board’, starting out in Loyal Nelson Lodge and beyond to what you see today, our ‘Grand Master’. The expressions on his face were priceless, followed by laughter and memories. We started the day with morning tea then moved on to the Fraternal Council Meeting. Meal breaks were catered by Our Ladies – well done and much appreciated.
