A message from WBro. Richard Watson WM 2018- 2019
Dear Brethren, family and friends,
I can scarcely believe a month has already passed us since we were hosted so generously by Bro Peter Shelley and his partner Maike at the Athenaeum Club for our Installation. On behalf of the newly installed team for the ensuing year I would like to thank all of you for joining us for a wonderful evening and bringing so many family and friends to make the night a fantastic success.
I would also like to take this moment to personally thank many of you for your support, guidance and hard work to make the evening happen. Together many of us have stepped into a new role within the team, most of us for the first time, and whilst it’s not always possible to be perfect first time around, I encourage everyone to challenge themselves in their own weakness and perform to their own personal best this year.
As a Lodge we love to cheekily declare in front of other Lodges that we are ‘Melbourne’s Premiere Dinning and Entertainment Lodge’. We are so fortunate to be able to make this declaration due to the tireless work of our past Secretary Worshipful Bro Daniel Jade. Daniel for the best part of a decade has always put our Lodge first to make it the enjoyable and attractive destination Lodge it is today. Worshipful Brother Daniel, on behalf of the Lodge of the Golden Fleece thank you.
To the Brethren and the newly installed Team, it is now the challenge before us to continue the excellent ritual, ensure the South is a vibrant and attractive place to welcome family and friends both old and new, and have a wonderful year we can all be proud of.
I look forward to seeing you for our first regular meeting in November.
WBro. Richard Watson
Worshipful Master 2018 - 2019
