Tuesday 22nd September was a key date in our Festival preparations, it was the night of the Hall Ambassadors seminar.
The Festival committee members along with Area Directors and Hall Ambassadors from across the Province got together at Ferryhill Masonic Hall to listen to The Festival Director John Thompson give a detailed presentation on all things Festival. Gala Director Andrew Foster was on hand to give everyone an update on Gala Preparations likewise Andrew Thompson with an update on the Sage.
John started the night by welcoming everyone and quickly inform them that they were not just Hall Ambassadors but Guinea pigs for his presentation which would be the forerunner for the Charity Stewards seminar coming in October.
The night was all about preparation, John was keen that the team were fully up to date and had the correct tools to go back to their halls and be ready to give advice to lodges upon the start of our Festival.
This was the first time the team were all together under one roof, so area communication officer Rod Scott was on hand to mark the occasion with the customary photograph.
The evening was well supported and everyone went home knowing at lot more than when they entered the building two hours earlier.
