Worshipful Master 2017-2018
A message from WBro Ben Quick WM 2017 - 2018

Dear Brethren, family and guests,


What an honor it is to be Worshipful Master of The Fleece in her 95th year; the Lodge has such passion, invigoration and a renewed focus as we move towards our Centenary in 2022. It inspires me to see our members commitment and drive, which in turn wants me as Worshipful Master to give them the best Masonic experience possible.


As I previously said from my Masters address at our Installation, “we must all support the Lodge, to continue to see it go from strength to strength; The Lodge is only as strong as our support we give to it”. From my Installation at the Athenaeum Club, which was a wonderful night, and now returning to The Kelvin Club for our regular stated meetings, it is refreshing to feel a true sense of being home and very pleasing to see us all joining in the ‘grand design of being happy, and communicating happiness to others’.


We should all feel proud to be members of Melbourne’s premier dining and entertainment Lodge, we should be justly as proud to be Freemasons. Together with your support I look forward to being a part of a very exciting future for the Lodge of the Golden Fleece. To our administration team of Bro’s Daniel and Jason, I owe a debt of gratitude to you both for your advice and wise counsel; to the Officers I am thankful to your commitment and leadership, to the Members and Brethren, I thank you as you continue to support me during my Mastership. 


To our families and friends who support us in our Masonic pursuits, we always look forward to welcoming you back and joining with us at our Lodge dinner table.

During my term as Worshipful it could not be at all possible without the support of my family, particularly Dee, to whom I give great thanks.


Semper Idem!


Ben Quick
