Brethren, just thought I would keep you all informed of our progress towards the 2021 Festival.

Congratulations so far and thank you very much. Keep up the good work and continue to enjoy the Festival
For your change: The Mark Benevolent Fund is issuing the Province with a number of boxes for each Lodge and each Masonic Centre. If you have any loose change and feel disposed to put it in the box, it will be thankfully received and will contribute to our 2021 Festival. Your generosity, as ever, will be appreciated.

Apologies seemed to go on for quite a while as 10 members names were read out as not being able to attend the lodge meeting. It seemed a lot yet the Lodge room felt pleasantly occupied.
