June 2022 Lodge Meeting

June 2022 Lodge Meeting

On Friday 10th June there was another fantastic meeting of the Essex Cornerstone Lodge.

The Lodge looks to strike a balance between exceptional ritual & floorwork, and the creative planning of the Festive Board & post-toast entertainment. This time was an Ibiza theme, with inflatable decor, rolling tapas buffet starter, huge paella main followed by live entertainment.

There was background music from a DJ booth during the meal, and a live saxophonist playing in time with chilled tunes afterwards. These Lodge meetings are open to all Freemasons, regardless of age, and it’s so wonderful to see so many guests from across the Province connecting in such a unique way.
