MEMBERS of the Mitchell Masonic Lodge are reminding the Mitchell community to attend their public open night on Wednesday, April 26.

The Freemasons are hoping the open night will inspire new memberships and involvement in Freemasonry, as well as provide those taking part an opportunity to learn more about the mission and vision of the foundation.

Attendees can expect a tour of the lodge room and temple, an in-depth description of the 10 Freemasonry roles, and to hear personal testimony about the organisation from experienced Freemasons, including lodge secretary and previous master David Atkinson.

The occasion will mark the first of its kind in nearly 17 years since the merger of Broadford Masonic Lodge 174, and Kilmore Masonic Lodge 32, which formed Mitchell Lodge 929 in 2006.

The Freemasons encourage families and descendants of existing members, community groups, sporting clubs, businesses and local RSL sub-branches to attend.

Despite being a men-only organisation, the Mitchell Freemasons are also inviting women to attend the open night for a better understanding of Freemasonry, and to support their partners.

The open night will commence at 5.30pm at 23 Murchison Street, Broadford, with information and time for questions from visitors, followed by a supper.

Attendees are asked to dress neat casual.

The Freemasons also invited the public to attend a ‘ceremony of the vacant chair’ at 7.30pm, which the organisation presents in commemoration of Anzac Day to pay tribute to soldiers who left for war but did not return home.

To book or to find more information, people can call David Atkinson on 5781 0728 or 0402 457 810 or email davidakko@hotmail.com or contact Laurie Stelfox on 5784 2577 or 0407 802 237.
