Moelwyn Lodge No. 3669 Holds an Open Day

The day dawned with blustery showers, “Oh no”, we thought, “not many visitors today”. However, under the gentle shepherding of any passing person by W.Bro’s Tony Wright and Gwilym Price the throngs flocked into the Lodge assisted by the arrival of the Ffestiniog Railway train from Porthmadog.

An estimated count gave a figure of approximately 150 persons coming to view the Lodge rooms and buildings. So many in fact that the principal tour guides W.Bro’s. M.O.Jones, J. Morgan, John Gwynn Davies, and Islwyn Pritchard Jones could hardly keep up, the occasional support from WBros G. Price and A. Wright was most gratefully accepted.

The ladies of the Lodge Mrs. Rhian Davies, Mrs.Margaret Painter, Mrs. Irene Frostick, Mrs. Susan Wright, Mrs. Gwenfair Young Jones, and Mrs. Ann Morgan provided the tea, cakes and biscuits and the kitchen banter.

Visitors from Canada, USA, Brittany, Holland, and Kurdistan as well as Pwllheli and many local persons graced us with their presence. Many expressed their surprise at what had been hidden from view for so long, and without exception were favourably impressed by the extent of the Masonic charitable work.

The day was judged to be a resounding success and names of prospective candidates were gathered throughout the day.

The Lodge was closed at 16:00 whereupon one exhausted Brother was heard saying “I’d rather do a day’s work than that!”
