On the evening of December 23rd the Provincial Grand Stewards’ Lodge No.154 under the direction of the Worshipful Master, W.Bro. Rodney Bignell hosted an evening of Christmas Carols at the Masonic Centre in Ciudad Quesada. The event was also ably supported by the Assistant Grand Master of Spain, R.W.Bro. Barrie Roy Mansell and the Provincial Grand Master, R.W.Bro. Michael Anthony Shilan and the Provincial Assistant Grand Master, W.Bro. Roy Mitchell.
The singing was led by V.W.Bro. Jeffrey Hyde and everyone was accompanied by the fine playing of W.Bro. Mal Cordall of Caledonia Lodge No.68 who was thanked warmly by the Provincial Grand Master and all present for supporting the event despite his wife having recently left hospital.
A wonderful selection of food was donated and prepared by some of the wives and partners including various appetisers, hot beef, chicken and vegetarian mains and mice-pies and cheese to end. The monies raised at the €6 per head function will be used towards essential maintenance and repairs to the building.
Highlight of the evening was rousing rendition of the ‘12 Days of Christmas’ with accompanying gestures, though perhaps the singing did not hit the right note with everyone….
The evening certainly got everyone present into the Christmas spirit.
A Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all.
