Description

PROTESTANT ALLIANCE FRIENDLY SOCIETY. WESTERN AUSTRALIA The Protestant Alliance Friendly Society of Australasia (PAFSA) was a mutual provident society of interth denominational Protestants who first established a presence in Western Australia on the 26 April 1892. This came about when J.T. Iredale from Sydney arrived in the State with Regalia and Charter to empower J. Arnold, a Bundaberg (Queensland) P.M. to initiate the inaugural meeting of the Society at Lodge No. 87 (forerunner to City of Perth Lodge No. 1). Shortly thereafter Lodge No. 90 Pride of the West (which eventually became Pride th of the West No. 2) was commissioned in Fremantle on the 27 April, 1893. Initially PAFSA operations in Western Australia were conducted under the auspices and imprimatur of the N.S.W. Grand Council. However, in February 1896 a local State Grand Council was convened. Various local Lodges were subsequently commissioned. Prior to the advent of Medicare, income protection and death benefits mutual aid societies, such as the Western Australian PAFSA, played a significant welfare support and social focal point role in Western Australia community life (Green and Cromwell, 1984, p. xiv). The Maylands Loyalty Lodge No. 16 Lodge Collection (Acc. 5689A): The records described in this collection specifically relate to the operation of the Protestant Alliance Friendly rd Society of Australasia (PAFSA) Maylands Loyalty Lodge No. 16 between its inauguration on the 23 February th 1922 and its subsequent dissolution on the 20 November, 1998. In December 1921 Victoria Lodge No. 3 (Subiaco) forwarded a listing of PAFSA members residing in the Maylands area to Grand Executive Council of Western Australia to consider in the proposal to establish a new Lodge. Grand Council deliberations and a request for other Lodges to submit lists of members residing in the Maylands area resulted in the formation of the Maylands Loyalty Lodge No.16. The inaugural meeting was rd th conducted on Thursday, 23 February, 1922 at the Church of Christ Hall, 9 Avenue, Maylands. Deputy Grand Master Williams presided over this inaugural meeting with the subsequent election of J.T. Magill as Worshipful Master and W.I. Cooper as Secretary. Regular meetings were conducted at various venues including the th Presbyterian School Hall on 7 Avenue, Maylands Town Hall and Masonic Hall located on the corner of 9th th Avenue and Carrington Street. On the 27 July 1931 the Maylands Loyalty Lodge No. 16 assumed joint ownership of the Maylands Friendly Society Hall in Caledonian Avenue. Meetings were conducted at this venue till early 1943 when the facility was requisitioned by army for defense need. The Masonic Hall in rd Inglewood was used as an alternative venue until the 23 June 1950 when the Lodge meeting place reverted to the Maylands Friendly Society Hall. The hall and adjacent block was purchased by the Independent Order of Oddfellows (I.O.O.F.) in 1980. The IOOF undertook significant building renovations including the addition of the two (2) additional Lodge meeting rooms. During the refurbishment of the Hall the Lodge meet in the Scout Hall located on Birkett Street, Maylands. The Maylands Loyalty Lodge returned to the Caledonian Avenue Hall th th on 7 November, 1980 and continued to meet in Lodge Meeting Room Two (2) until it’s dissolution on the 20 November, 1998. Various PAFSA members from the Maylands Lodge No. 16 served in official capacities on the Grand Council of Western Australia including the following Worshipful Grand Masters E.A. Anderson (1943-46), W. Gunn (196062), E. Taylor (1974-76), R.G. Taylor (1981-82), R.S. Cocks (1985-86) and Worshipful Mistress L.R. Wrigglesworth (1983-1984). Additionally W. Gunn served as a past trustee and as did L.R. Wrigglesworth who was serving as trustee at the time of the decommissioning of the PAFSA in Western Australia. The following three (3) Lodge officers served as District Masters: E.A. Anderson, E.G. Taylor and K.D. Dancer. Past secretaries in chronological sequence of the Maylands Loyalty Lodge No. 16 include W.L. Cooper, L.A. Morrison, H. Harvey, J.L. Patterson, R.J. Lynch, A.E.D Jobling, J.S. Whyte, J.L.
