The Provincial Grand Master did say he would keep the toast list short and his speech to a very minimum, and true to his word he did. The toast to the Queen took place and he was on his feet for less than 5 mins, promoting the main theme of the evening, to enjoy ourselves and the food and drinks available. The Masters Commanders and wives certainly did that.
The 17th annual dinner took place at Bury Masonic Hall, Parsons Lane, Bury BL9 0LY on Friday 8th March 2019, with a reception at 7:00pm. Official photographs in Regalia were taken at 7:15 pm of the Mark Lodge Masters and Royal Ark Mariner Commanders, together with the Provincial Grand Master, by W.Bro John Barlow. The photographs are available in Hi-Res if you request one here.
The dinner is quite unique in that it is open to current Masters of the Mark degree and the RAM only. It’s a great opportunity for those in the chair to mix and meet with their fellow masters from across the province. In all over 80 masters and wives attended and enjoyed the formal dinner.
