2016 Mark Provincial Sunday Luncheon at Corby 13th March
On Sunday 13th March, a total of 98 brethren and their ladies attended a most enjoyable traditional Sunday lunch of Roast Beef and trimmings at Corby Masonic Centre. The lunch is arranged annually as a celebration for those brethren receiving Provincial honours in both Mark and Mariner degrees over the previous twelve months.
The lunch was hosted by the Provincial Grand Master, RWBro. George Bonham and his lady, Avril who together with Deputy Provincial Grand Master, VWBro. Brian Ennever, Past Deputies, VWBro’s Geoff Bollard with Sue and VWBro Richard Turpin and Doris supported George and Avril on the top table.
In his very brief after lunch announcements the Provincial Grand Master thanked all for attending and supporting in good numbers this most important social event in the calendar and which goes from strength to strength every year. He also took the opportunity of announcing that the Deputy Provincial Grand Master, Brian Ennever, had expressed a wish to stand down for business and personal reasons and that he had reluctantly agreed to the request. This would be effective from the forthcoming Provincial Meeting on the 25th June at Northampton. Brian would be succeeded by WBro. Bob Stokes, the current Provincial Grand Director of Ceremonies.
