On 17th November 2018 Old Tower Lodge No 49 held their annual Ladies Festival at Las Ramblas Golf Resort Restaurant. 121 Masons, guests, family and friends, some who had travelled from the UK, attended to support WM Paul Burletson and his Lady June.
The evening started with a Cava and Canapé reception followed by a fabulous meal of homemade bread and ali oli, prawn cocktail with avocado and tobiko roe, serrano ham and manchego cheese, Las Ramblas salad, tomato & mozzarella cheese, beef entrecote with Maldon salt and Béarnaise sauce, cheese, biscuits & Port. For those with a sweet tooth there was a sweetie table with all the old-fashioned favourite sweets.
WM Steve Cardwell did an exceptional job as Toast Master for the evening and many toasts were taken with Masons and guests. The Ladies Song was sung beautifully by RWBro Jeff Hyde, who had lost his voice a week before, but luckily recovered a couple of days prior to the event.
The WM presented his Lady with a Pandora bracelet and bouquet of flowers from Old Tower Lodge.
Once the formalities were concluded, the WM and his Lady led the dancing with a slow dance to Unchained Melody sung by their entertainer for the evening, Sandy Fitz.
Special thanks to VWBro Rodney Bignell and his wife Jeannette for helping organise this successful event and Wendy Porter for taking the photographs.
