GSE Bulletin No 65
A reminder that registrations for the Grand Installation close on Friday 17th August.
This is just one month away.
The Friday night Reception and Welcome is the time where you will meet interstate, overseas and local Companions in a more informal setting than the Installation Banquets.
The Ladies breakfast on Saturday morning is open to all ladies and is not restricted to overseas and interstate visitors.
The Grand Installation on Saturday afternoon will be followed by a Grand Banquet.
The Tall Ships Cruise on Sunday afternoon is proving very popular and I would advise booking very soon to avoid disappointment.
The Grand Mark Installation is in the Egyptian Room at Petersham. Transport will be available from the SMC to Petersham and return for the dinner at Rydges Hotel.
I have attached a form and brochure for your convenience
