Macosquin Loyal Orders combine to   Dedicate and Unfurl new bannerettes  

It’s was a special evening of decimation at Macosquin Orange Hall on Friday evening. Macosquin LOL 310 were presented with a new bannerette by the Kelly Family in memory of their late father, Bro. William Kelly who had been in the lodge for 68 years.

The Reverend Paul Lyons St. Mary’s, Parish Church in Macosquin, opened the evening with prayer before handing over to Worshipful Bro. Mark Kelly who spoke about his father and also the pictures depicted on the bannerette.

The Reverend Lyons then dedicated the bannerette before it was unfurled by the Worshipful District Master Bro. John Parke along with Bro. William Kelly (Jnr). 

Macosquin Smith’s Defenders RBP 256 were also presented with their new bannerette from Mrs. Etta Hutchinson. The Worshipful Master Sir Knight Kenneth Hutchison spoke about Etta and the support she has given to both Orders over the years, unfortunately Etta was unable to attend but her family were there to represent her. 

The Reverend Lyons dedicated the bannerette before it was unfurled by the Worshipful District Master Sir Knight Derek Cauley along with Etta’s son Sir Knight Michael Hutchinson.

Both the bannerettes were made by Bro. Trevor McKay and for this we are very grateful, also thanks must go to Bro. Robert Butler for all his help in sourcing all the accessories for both. 

Photographs were taken afterwards and a light supper was served. Macosquin Lodge and Preceptory, would like to thank all who attended the evening and express their sincere gratitude to the Kelly and Hutchinson families.
