Provincial Grand Lodge Yorkshire North & East Ridings 2018 Masonic Festival Website

York St. Saviourgate was the venue for the first Regional Launch on the 17th. May. The Provincial Grand Master had launched the Festival with a fanfare at the Provincial meeting and now it was the turn of the different regions within our province to celebrate. The Festival chairman, David Marsh got the evening underway and was supported by the Chief Executive of the Masonic Samaritan Fund, Richard Douglas, Jack Sharpe, the Festival area co-ordinator and two recipients of help from the MSF, Glyn Norman and Brian Everettt. Glyn and Brian spoke with passion about the benefit of the support available from the MSF. The Festival President then invited those attending to dine and this rounded the evening off nicely. A happy social atmosphere was enjoyed by all present.
