masonic

Masonic Musings Joseph Banks (17431820) was the first Freemason to land on Australian soil. He was one of the fathers of modern botany and strongly influenced the continuing exploration of New Holland. He was later responsible for introducing into botany the Linnaeus system and the Latin naming system still in use today.

Explorer, botanist and friend of royalty, Banks was an adviser to King George III, encouraging him to support new voyages of discovery. Well before he was appointed to join the Endeavour on its expedition south, Banks was much better known than the ship’s commander, James Cook. The aristocracy and the scientific community saw

Joseph Banks as the star of the voyage. The Endeavour made a great voyage of discovery, charting much of New Zealand before arriving on the east coast of New Holland, where Cook become the first visitor to plant a flag and claim the land as a Colony – New South Wales. Joseph Banks and his team collected and recorded so much rich botanical material that

they named the place of their arrival, “Botany Bay”. Banks returned to England in 1771 and later recommended Botany Bay as suitable for a convict settlement. He was knighted in 1781. On Saturday 6th August 2011 Lodge 103 will be holding their Installation Banquet in the Endeavour Room at ClubMulwala. I doubt that Joseph Banks or James Cook, nor the good

ship Endeavour will be a topic of conversation on that occasion but the name “Endeavour” lives on. I’ve just discovered that Vic Patrick, possibly the greatest Australian boxer never to win a world title was initiated into Freemasonry at age 22 years, and was of Italian origins. He was born Victor Patrick Lucca but changed his name by deed poll in

1940 because there was a war on and Australia was fighting Italy. Obviously I’ve been reading a book concerning Freemasonry; its title is “Its no Secret”. Interestingly, but it does not tell me the secret of how to get out of bunkers on the local golf course. Perhaps I need to have a wee talk to a canny Scot.

Cheers, Stan Clarke WM103.

Murray Regional Tourism Board meets here The Murray Regional Tourism Board (MRTB) held its monthly meeting in Yarrawonga Mulwala last Wednesday at the Yarrawonga airport terminal.

The board also toured local tourism sites and met with local industry representatives including a meet and greet evening at the Yarrawonga and Border Golf Club.
