ROYAL ANTEDILUVIAN ORDER OF BUFFALOES
THE Society is known as R.A.O.B., meaning Royal Antediluvian Order of
Buffaloes, and the local Lodge is Phoenix No. 24, on the roll of the
Grand Lodge of England.
Phoenix Lodge No. 24 meets on alternate Thursdays in the M.U.
Hall, Gill Street.
The R.A.O.B. is a purely social Lodge where men of different political
opinions and creeds may meet together in social amity in a society
whose main objetcs are philanthrophy and conviviality.
Owing to seasonal work and other reasons taking members away from the
district, Phoenix Lodge No. 24 became defunct a few years ago and not
quite eighteen months ago several enthusiastic members decided to
revive this Lodge and it was so successful a revival that to-day it has
a total of 60 members.
Present Officers are: W.P. Bro. T. Glenwright, C.P.; A.B. Bro. F.
Parker, C.P.; C.Sec. Bro. J. J. Shipp, C.P.; C.Trea. Bro. F. Collins,
C.P.; C.Mars. Bro. J. Fraser, K.O.M.; C.Reg. Bro. F. Choate; C.Cons.
