On the 25th June, Oliva La Safor Lodge of Freemasons held a summer party and barbecue for Masons and guests at the popular local restaurant Viva España in Oliva. About fifty Masons attended with wives and guests, to what turned out to be a very good evening. Entertainment was provided throughout the evening, first by versatile local entertainer Frank Abrams, who sang and played keyboards, flute and saxophone. He was ably backed up by ‘Grayjam’ more well known as W. Bro Graham Scutt on electric guitar. Graham has a wide repertoire of popular music and is becoming quite well known among locals in this area.
The meal was based around a barbecue with a choice of and lamb, chicken and sausages with salad, followed by an apple pie with ice cream. A raffle was held for charity in which all gifts were donated by Masons and which raised three hundred euros. This was collected on behalf of the children’s home, El Preventorio, and will be donated at a later date with other monies raised. The Worshipful Master reminded everyone that not everyone was as fortunate as we are and asked everyone to remember the children, particularly when buying raffle tickets.
