SUNDAY THE 12TH OF AUGUST WAS A COLD DAY BUT A SUNNY, WARM ATMOSPHERE PERVADED AS A LARGE GROUP OF LOCALS AND WELL-WISHERS CELEBRATED THE UNVEILING OF OUR NEWEST RESIDENTIAL AGED CARE SERVICE – THE 144-BED HOME, ROYAL FREEMASONS BACCHUS MARSH.

Trustee of the Royal Freemasons’ Homes of Victoria, Mr John Chanter, made the opening address and called on the Shire of Moorabool Mayor, CR Paul Tatchell, to officially open Royal Freemasons Bacchus Marsh.

Open Day activities, including tours of the facility, refreshments from our onsite Café and the sausage sizzle kiosk, were popular on the day.

Face painting was enjoyed by kids young and old at the playground area and music group Clarinet Claritude played a fabulous repertoire from classical to jazz.

Local radio 98.5FM covered the Open Day live and broadcast the grand event.

The dedicated Royal Freemasons team made it easy to answer questions and guide visitors. They were able to help everyone explore the latest in premium aged care.

As well as the events onsite, two Butes (billboards on the back of utes) promoted our Open Day in Bacchus Marsh and Darley, despite extremely windy weather conditions. People in the area were caught looking and pointing at the Butes and even taking photos of them!
