The very first dinner for the Devonshire 2023 MCF Festival took place at Mount Edgcumbe Masonic Hall on Saturday 27th October.
This splendid occasion was organised by W.Bro. John Pritchard who is seen presenting a cheque for £1,500 to R.W. Bro. Ian Kingsbury, the Provincial Grand Master.
The PGM thanked W.Bro. John for all his hard work in making the event such a success and for the wonderful donation to the MCF Festival, which was made possible by the attendance of over 90 Freemasons and guests. They were entertained by a comedian and excellent cabaret singer.
W.Bro. John thanked W.Bro. Roger Lillicrap and his wife Barbara for the catering and bar and presented Barbara with bouquet of flowers. A further bouquet was presented to the P.G.M's wife,Toni.
They say a star is born every minute but those present witnessed our own “home grown star“ V.W.Bro. Nick Ball who took to the stage and brought the house down with an Elvis Presley song “The Wonder of You”
It was a truly wonderful evening demonstrating how great it is to “Put the Fun back into Fundraising” A truly Win Win occasion in every respect.
