Tyler's Toast

To all poor and distressed Freemasons
Wherever they may be
We wish them a speedy relief from their sufferings
And a safe return to their native land
Should they so desire.

This toast, and variations of, is given at the end of a light meal after Lodge meetings all around the world. It is honoured by all present and gives us pause to reflect on those less fortunate than those able to attend.

Bay of Plenty District takes this opportunity to pause and reflect on all those who are suffering and know that our thoughts are with you.
