Once again (after already having taken place for many years) this very popular event was presided over by the Worshipful Master WBro. David Sutton & the Worshipful Commander WBro. Ivor Armstrong along with their ladies Frances and Linda and was enjoyed by a full attendance. Our Deputy PGM also honoured the lodges by attending along with his wife, Marilyn.
W.Bro Chris Winfield of the Powys Lodge No.685 played and led the carol singing in a very entertaining manner and of course ending the evening with singing the famous Twelve Days of Christmas & We wish you a merry Christmas (give me some figgy pudding). The Director of Ceremonies for the evening was undertaken by W.Bro Malcolm Plumb.
The Stamford Masonic Centre Chef Andrew Binder and his excellent team provided us with one of his quality meals. During the evening £481.50 was raised which will be divided between The Stamford Masonic Centre and The Mark Benevolent Association and the Steanforde Royal Ark Mariner 150th Anniversary Keystone Fund, which will then mean both Steanforde Mark & RAM will have achieved the status of the 150th Anniversary Keystone Lodge.
