CROWLEY LODGE No. 6901
Durham 2021 Festival Silver Award
What a delightful Friday 21st September 2018 at Crowley Lodge No. 6901. The Assistant Provincial Grand Master W Bro John D Watts was there to deliver a talk on Blood Bikes and was delighted to receive a Lodge donation of £100 for Northumbria Blood Bikes. The Lodge has also exceeded 66% of its Festival fundraising target so John Watts was delighted to present their Charity Steward Alex Mathieson with a Durham 2021 Festival Silver Award as well as presenting a Stewards jewel to a Lodge member. Malcolm Ormiston then surprised John with another £180 towards the Durham 2021 Festival from the DMCCC thanks to the generosity of Caravan Site owners Phil Appleby and Karenze Appleby-Blaauw. The icing on the cake however literally came after dinner when John was delighted to be presented with ironically a Smartie filled cake to mark his retirement as Assistant Provincial Grand Master on Saturday 6th October 2018. Now we know where the contents of the 20p collection tubes go !!!! The AsstProvGM then gave huge thanks to everyone at Dunston Masonic Hall for making his last APGM visit there so special and Martin Rankin for acting as my DC for the evening.
