Lodge Scotch College and Hutchins Old Boys Commencement Dinner
|Installation April 2013|
|What a Night|
| Bro.Douglas G. Dearinger was installed
at an open meeting, as Master of Lodge Scotch College on Tuesday
evening of the 16th April 2013.
Wor. Bro. Douglas would like to take this opportunity to thank all that attended and made this the success it was, in particular Christine Dearinger, and his family from Queensland. The 106 guests, GL Brethren, and the Tamer Chapter of the Eastern Star. Yes 106 in the Lodge room.
V. Wor. Bro. Greg Parkinson of Lodge Phoenix piped the new master and Mrs. Dearinger into the banquet hall.
The Banquet was set up for 70 guests, soon looking for more tables with a final count of 85 who stayed for the banquet.
Well done to the three founding members that attended, two still active in the lodge.
There was excitement when the 50 year Celebratory cake was escorted in by two Grand Lodge Deacons with the two latest members of the craft one from Lodge Esk, and the other from Lodge Scotch College, (both recently joining as a result of an "Open Day" held at the Launceston Masonic Centre) carrying the cake to were the "Founding Members" were seated.
The cutting of the cake was special moment of reflection for our old boys, and a contemplation for the newer.
The local Examiner News Paper was invited and photo journalist Emily Baker assisted by V. Wor. Bro. John the Duke of Avram, Secretary H.O.B acting as media liaison. This was another first, providing L.S.C with a unique opportunity to promote several Masonic groups and event at once.
1. The 50 year celebration of L.S.C
2. A Master Mason being installed as first time Master
3. An open Installation.
This resulted in a news item with photo on page 19 of the Examiner on the 19th. April 2013. The obvious success of this event proves, we can do it.
Freemasonry Tasmania is now.

|Combined Christmas Meeting December 2012|
The combined Lodge Heather/ Scotch Christmas Function was held last Tuesday 4th December 2012.
Members attended a short meeting while the Ladies were entertained in the South by Mr. Max Linton.

During the evening Max Linton entertained us all with his music, truly amazing the melodies that Max can produce.

Old Boys / Lodge Scotch College
St. Andrews Inn Cleveland Tasmania was the venue on Sunday 19th August 2012. Brethren, wives and partners travelled from Hobart , Launceston , and the East Coast to Cleveland for a long overdue fraternal visit.
We were blessed with a sunny day. The venue was cosy warm with log fires, rustic old world charm, with a wonderful trace of smoke from the log fire drifting into the several rooms we had commandeered for the afternoon, affectionately known as The Old Coach Inn on the Midlands Highway at Cleveland Tasmania.
All enjoyed generous portions of lamb or pork with all the trimmings, which was followed by either Sticky Date Pudding or Bread and Butter Pudding. Yum!
Before , during and after lunch there was much discussion on matters Masonic with Brethren reminiscing on the not so long ago visits to Hobart and Launceston Lodges with fond memories being exchanged, with newer members of both Lodges listening attentively.
Brethren often moving from room to room to catch up with a brother each had not spoken to for some time and to make firm arrangements to keep in touch with email and telephone numbers being exchanged.
There was much discussion on returning to this fraternal visitation that was once a regular event with a decision that Lodge Scotch College will now be travelling to Hobart with a tentative date being January next year, to enjoy the fellowship once again of the members of Lodge Hutchins Old Boys.
The mood was one of fraternal enjoyment and togetherness. Thoughts of sincere fellowship were present. It was if we were a family.
The Worshipful Master Rt. Wor. Brother. R.V. Edwards Master of Lodge Scotch College wishes to thank all that attended for a most enjoyable time.
Bro. & Mrs R. Edwards. Bro.& Mrs. Kiel. Bro.& Mrs. D. Fraser. Bro. O. Thorne. Bro.& Mrs. G. Hambly. Bro.& Mrs. D. Dearinger. Bro. H. Lear. Bro.& Mrs. Young. Bro.& Mrs. A. Miller. Bro.& Mrs. Cummins. Ms. D. Frances. Bro Robert Dick and Bro John Duke of Avram
