Thanks to the Elizabethan Lodge Members

A note of thanks from the Stable Home Family Trust

Hi Malcolm

I just wanted to say a massive thank you on behalf of The Stable Family Home Trust for organising the Monkey World visit on Sunday 1st July.

Our SFHT clients had a wonderful trip out and despite the temperature being 28 degrees many of the Centre's residents including Squirrel Monkeys, Ringtailed Lemurs, Enrico's Capuchin's and Apes still come out to greet everyone.

Thank you to everyone at The Elizabethan Lodge 7262 for welcoming everybody from our charity and providing refreshments, ensuring they all had a fabulous day out and without the support of services such as the Freemasons these days would not be possible.

Our former Asst Sec and current Lodge Mentor organised a wonderful day out for Lodge Members and their families. Over 80 guests attended which included a party from the Stable Home Family Trust who attended as guests of the lodge.

The day ended with a splendid cream tea. A raffle held on the day raised £141.00 for the Jim Cronin Memorial Fund.

1717 at Shalden Lodge

Shalden Lodge now has joined in the ever growing numbers of Lodges that have benefited from the experience of receiving the 1717 Demonstration at the same time as raising lots of money for Lifelites.

A 1717 team short on numbers put in a magnificent display from start to finish, and demonstrated that this group of extremely dedicated and hard working masons can still produce a sensational evening despite not being at full strength.

1717 visit to The Portsmouth Lodge 487

The Portsmouth Lodge had obviously promoted the visit of 1717 team for some time and this was evidenced by the packed temple and dining room, the reception received for the demonstration was full of laughter and interest, and the question and answer session clearly showed the brethren present were very interested in the history.  The whole 1717 team produced another wonderful display of this interesting and amusing demonstration. 

The festive board was much more lively than normal and a good amount was raised for Lifelites, and everyone departed having enjoyed a thoroughly good evening.
