As we approach the end of the current Masonic Season we now have only two years to go until our Festival matures. The big date for all your diaries is Saturday, 3 July 2021.
A great deal of work is already going on behind the scenes as we liaise with the venue, Manchester United, and start to bring together menus, AV suppliers, transport, hotels and all the other more “Thoughts in Spring”
Brethren, just thought I would keep you all informed of our progress towards the 2021 Festival.
The current total stands at £414,797.30
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.
