On Wednesday the 20th April 2016, five Brethren from Quorn Lodge No. 59, and three ladies, travelled to Worumba Station 28 kms. from Hawker to present a Fifty-Five and Sixty Year Bar to WBro. Lindsay Clarke.

 

Due to his age, health and distance from Quorn WBro. Clarke is unable to attend Quorn meetings in the evenings.

 

WBro. Colin Struck, Master of Quorn Lodge No. 59 spoke on behalf of Quorn Lodge and WBro. Richard Warwick was given the honour of presenting the Bars to WBro. Clarke as they both had travelled many kilometres together attending Lodge at Orroroo and other Lodges throughout the State.
