Eldon Lodge Donate £1000 to Clevedon YMCA
The January 2023 meeting was very special. Not only did Eldon lodge donate £1000 to the Clevedon YMCA, they did so at a white table, where partners are invited to dine, and when everyone say down to a “Burns Supper”, complete with a piper (thanks you Sandy), and a toast to a very rare Haggis.
As you can see from the photos below, the festive board was a very happy affair, and included a presentation to John Howard (see right) of the Clevedon YMCA, who gave an interesting and informative talk on the history and work of the YMCA in Clevedon.
|Eldon lodge were also very pleased to welcome back Peter Milsom, who was |
worshipful master in 2010, and who hasn’t been able to attend for a number of years.
The “Burns Supper” commencedwith Sandy leading a procession around the dining room (the Poets Suite), playing traditional Bagpipe music. He then presented the address to the Haggis, which was followed by a toast to Robbie Burns.
