Welcome to the Web Page of the Grand Court of New South Wales, Order of the Amaranth Incorporated.
We have just held our 69th Annual Session and have elected and appointed our new team to lead us into our 70th year of the Grand Court.
I, H.L. Heather Baker, Grand Royal Matron and S.K. Donald Cobcroft, Grand Royal Patron and Officers look forward to a busy and fun filled year.
Our January Meeting was not only our 71st Birthday meeting but also Australia Day and H.L. Beverley prepared a most interesting talk based on 4 Australian Artists and their paintings interspersed with members singing well known Australian songs.
