Winner of the bottle of Colombian rum donated by Bro Carlos Osorio on his visit last month. The brethren raised £118 for charity. We also enjoyed excellent Colombian coffee after dinner. Many thanks Carlos.
The WM was pleased to wear his refurbished collar at our meeting on Friday 15 September with the new silver gilt Tercentenary ‘ornament’ attached. A splendid momento of the 300th year of Freemasonry. And an excellent 2nd degree ceremony with 3 brethren passed to the Fellowcraft degree.
Gifts from member Bro Osorio visiting from Colombia. Coffee & rum; a fitting way to celebrate with our 3 Fellowcrafts.
The Worshipful Master, brethren and partners had a marvellous evening at St James Park.
Over 800 brethren, their partners and guests attended. The Pro Grand Master was guest of honour and along with the Provincial Grand Master presented cheques to representatives of some of the local charities which will benefit from a grand total of £300,000 to be donated this year.
