New Possibilities Await!

Great Oaks from little acorns grow! As they say.

And so, new possibilities await the partitioners

of the soon to be,

“East Kent Combined Services Lodge No. 10038”

April Fool’s Day probably wasn’t the best choice of days to arrange a Working Lunch, but I did! And with much on the agenda, we Founding Officers designate of the soon-to-be-Consecrated East Kent Combined Services Lodge discussed the inner workings of our brand-new Lodge over a fine Italian Luncheon at Trattoria Romana, Ashford.

Many ‘Traditions’ have now been agreed upon and much work and coordination are needed to make the Consecration in October one to remember – which I am positive it will be.

What will they be? You will have to attend to find out.
Meeting on the 2nd  Saturday in February, Aril, June, October and December. Times to be agreed.

Is Steve the only one finding Kevin's story funny, oh no, a smile from the other members, as they sit around the dining table.

The Consecration of the East Kent Combined Services Lodge No.10038 will take place at The Kent Showground, Detling, on Saturday 14th October 2023. If you are a Mason, you are cordially invited to witness this spectacular Ceremony in the company of the Provincial Grand Master Neil Hamilton Johnstone and his Consecration Team; and then afterwards to join us at our Festive Board.
