Welcome to the February edition of Under the Eastern Star, this being the first full month of the New Year we have been very busy.

This month we had another BBQ in the Park which I will discuss later followed by first degree on Bro.Wayne Greenley. Our new member Bro Wayne Greenley was an excellent candidate, and I would like once again to congratulate and welcome him to   Mt. Pleasant Lodge.

I would like to thank all the Brethren who helped in the Initiation ceremony, a good job was done by the members, it was obvious to all that a lot of study had been completed.

We also held a minutes silence in remembrance on the passing in New Zealand, of Wor Bro Neil Pethig, the father of our IPM Wor Bro Gareth Pethig.


As I announced in Lodge at the last meeting, I will not be in attendance for the March Meeting, so I wish everyone a great night.

Since the last meeting I was only able to make three visits, they were:  Redlands Lodge,   CH Harley Lodge, City of Logan Lodge, and Baden Powell Lodge.

Bro Lancashire completed approximately six visits including Rosewood with other members of our lodge who were all found jobs to do on the night, thank you all.


February saw us hold the first BBQ in the park at Mt. Cootha. 30 people attended for an enjoyable breakfast. Bro Cameron Donald was celebrating his birthday so we joined in singing happy birthday to him and then guess what, he won one of the raffle prizes. Thank one and all for coming along and as usual Lindsay and Helen put in the effort to do the cooking, thank you.

Andrew Childs is organising another TAFE college dinner for March, when he can finalises the details they will be sent out to brethren in plenty of time.
