Brian Freestone receives his 40 year scroll at the Gala Dinner meeting

Tonight marks the 50th anniversary of the inauguration of our Circle, so we held a special Gala Dinner to mark the event. The Dinner was preceded by our monthly meeting, moved on this auspicious occasion to a Saturday in order to give our current Grand Vice-President the opportunity to attend and present one of our senior brothers with his 40-year scroll.
