Dinner supports a worthy cause A DINNER at the Mornington Golf Club was a fun way for Mornington Lodge members to celebrate 125 years of service to the community. The lodge has been part of the town since 1890 â€“ with Freemasons raising $30,000-$40,000 each year for charitable projects. A major project launched at the dinner is one close to all their hearts: a plan to raise $125,000 to help stamp out family violence. A driving force behind the project was special guest at the dinner: Australian of the Year Rosie Batty, whose campaign for compulsory reporting of child abuse cases has generated a lasting response. She also established the Luke Batty Foundation to assist women and children affected by domestic violence. In a show of solidarity, the Grand Lodge has said it will double the money raised by Mornington Lodge. Among other events, the lodge is soon to unveil a plaque near the door of the former Mornington Mechanics Hall facade in Main St. Freemasons met there from 1890 until moving to the present location in Barkly St in 1921. The founding Master, Henry Erskine Moor, was a civil engineer and shire secretary. Freemasons have also arranged for decorative pavers referring to the lodge to be included in the surrounds of the Avenue of Honour Memorial Rotunda to be built in Mornington Park on Barkly St.
