Recently, the Master of Caledonia Lodge, W.Bro Sid Formby and his wife Bernice welcomed eighty-nine Brethren and guests to their Ladies’ Night at the restaurant, Casa Antonio, Formentera. This event is mainly to thank the wives and partners of the Masons for all their help and support throughout the year. Among the very special guests this year were the Assistant Grand Master of Spain, R.W.Bro Barrie Mansell and his wife Julie and the Provincial Grand Master of Valencia, R.W.Bro Michael Shilan and his wife Muriel.
Following a very pleasant reception in the beautiful gardens of the restaurant, guests enjoyed a delicious meal accompanied by singing from “It Takes Two”. The loyal toast was given by WBro Formby, the toast to the ladies by Bro Ian Bullock and the Ladies song was sung by W.Bro David Turner, ably assisted by the Lodge Wardens. Mrs Bernice Formby responded to the toast and also made presentations to the Ladies who had assisted with organising the event.
During the evening raffle tickets were sold and raised an amazing seven hundred and twenty euros for the Master’s charity, which for this year, is the Butterfly Children. This will be presented at a later date. The evening concluded with dancing to It Takes Two and all agreed that it had been a very successful event.
