The South East Area recently held a very successful Summer Ball at the Officers Mess Southwick House, a total of 188 people attended including the P.G.M. the Deputy P.G.M. the A.P.G.M. and the Area Chairman accompanied by their wives.
During the evening we were entertained by the Royal Marines Cadet Band from HMS Excellent and Abba Angels. We also held a Raffle and an Auction with all items being donated by various Brethren and Companies, all of whom I would like to sincerely thank for their support and generosity, the proceeds from the event are going to the 2016 Festival Appeal in aid of the Royal Masonic Trust for Girls & Boys, I’m pleased to report that a total of £4,000.14 was raised on the evening.
I should also like to express my sincere thanks to the Members of the Area 2016 Festival Sub-committee who helped organise the event.
The same venue has been booked for next year, the date is Saturday 18th June 2016 Tickets will be limited to 180 and will be sold on a first come first served basis, it is hoped that the ticket will be priced the same as last year i.e. £50.00 each, full details of the event will be released later in the year.
