The Right Worshipful Provincial Grand Master Bro Andrew A McKinnon and his team of Commissioned and Elective Office-bearers carried out a Turf Cutting Ceremony at California Primary School on Saturday 11th October 2014.

The donated plot within the school grounds will be the site of a commemorative cairn that will shortly be erected to commemorate those from California and Blackbraes who gave their lives in the service of their country during World War One.
