Festival Meeting 2017

The Old Rossallian Lodge Meeting on Saturday, 10th June 2017.

Despite a wet start to the day and many of our members being absent through illness, we held a very successful lodge meeting at the Fleetwood Masonic Hall, graced by the presence of the PGM of West Lancashire.

Jason Davies (Osborne and Mitre Fleur-de-Lys 1984 – 1991) was initiated whilst his partner, other members’ ladies and other visitors were very well looked after and entertained at the school by Dr. Nick Lister at the Astronomy Centre, followed by a Musical performance by the students of Rossall and a Chapel Service. We are indebted to the Rev. Etienne van Blerk and Canon Rev. Godfrey Hurst.

Stuart Corrie the Organist and Margaret Young the Musical Director and the Rossall Choir can be proud of their performances.

And more. We then enjoyed a Champagne Reception in the Sumner Library followed by a magnificent Banquet in the Dining Hall. Nothing was too much trouble for Tim and the Dining Hall staff and the food was the best yet.

Finally, thanks are due to Ray Hargreaves for all his effort and most of all to the Head, Elaine Purves for welcoming us back and for keeping us up-to-date with Rossall’s progress. Floreat Rossallia!

As a result of the day, the Lodge has a Joining Brother and yet another O.R. to initiate into Freemasonry.
