The Combined Lodges of Renmark, Berri and Barmera (Lake Bonney) had a very successful

and happy night on the 27th February 2013 in the Renmark Lodge rooms.


The Grand Master, MWBro. R.J.Parsons and the Deputy Grand Master, RWBro. S.E.P.Michalak and a Grand Lodge team were in attendance when the combined Riverland lodges performed a fine working of the second degree.  Fifteen Renmark members, 13 visitors and 13 in the Grand Lodge team were present.
