Star of Saxony Lodge Ladies Festival
On June 22nd, we, the Star of Saxony Lodge, celebrated our annual Ladies Festival.
The venue took place at Hotel Esser, in Wegberg – Kipshoven, there were 27 in attendance which included The Ladies, Brethren and Friends.
Stuart Wilson his friend and their ladies who were on a visit to the Continent from the U.K., took the opportunity to take part.
Our Senior Deacon; Jeremy Hoar, acting as Junior Warden assisted by his lady Karin did a wonderful job in organising the event.
The evening commenced with toasts to the Queen and the President of the Federal Republic of Germany, Joachim Gauck, proposed by the Worshipful Master W Bro. Stephen Oke, who incidentally celebrated his 56th birthday on that day.
Contrary to our usual tradition, the toast to the Ladies was given before the meal by our Senior Warden Don Bowen and the response was given by the Worshipful Masters Lady, Carol Oke.
Bouquets of flowers were presented to the Ladies of the Worshipful Master and Senior Warden.
After that we all enjoyed an excellent buffet.
During the course of the evening a raffle was held and raised 190.00€ for the WM Charity Fund.
The evening was enjoyed by all and we will be looking forward to next year.
Yours very sincerely,
