This years Mark Provincial Ladies Evening will take place in the Ebor Suite at York Racecourse on Saturday 22nd June 2019, from 7.30pm. This is our Province’s main social event of the year, one in which we can thank our wives and partners for the support they have given us during the year. Friends and families as well as non-Masonic friends are all welcome. This is an opportunity to have a Lodge Ladies night without having to organise anything! The meal and entertainment during the evening will be superb and you are guaranteed a very enjoyable night. Click here to see the flyer and print it to make your booking.

Members of the Abbot Hugh of Selby Lodge following the presentation of the Keystone by the RW Provincial Grand Master for having the most Brethren in attendance at the Convocation and luncheon, there were 17 members accompanying the Worshipful Master, W Bro David Strathie, making 18 in total.
The next meeting of Abbot Hugh will be held on Wednesday 24th April which will be the Installation Meeting. The Lodge is expecting to attract raiding parties from across the Province not only to attempt to claim the Keystone but to enjoy friendship and fellowship throughout the evening.
Beverlac Keystone Mark Lodge no.281 held their carol service at All Saints Church in Hessle in December in aid of Martin House Hospice for terminally ill children.
Although the unit is based in Boston Spa it provides a service for children and parents throughout our Province and last year they were caring for 430 children, either in the hospice or at home.
The carol service was attended by the Provincial Grand Master and his lady Rose and was supported by the Vice Lord Lieutenant for the East Riding Mr. Stephen Larard MBE, JP
The North Ferriby Ladies Choir sang at the service of nine lessons and carols and the result was a very healthy £1468.00
Presenting the money to Becky Nicholson from Martin House are Peter Nesbitt and Bill Glanville who organized the service, accompanied by their wives who were heavily involved in the event.
This years’ service has already been booked for Sunday 15th December at 2.00pm so please put a note in your diaries.
