Friday the 16th September 2022 saw the lodge room of Freemasons Hall, Queen Street, Sunderland  packed with 79 brethren including a small deputation of Provincial Officers led by John Thompson, the Provincial Grand Master, to join with the members of Nautilus Lodge in celebrating their Centenary year.

 

 

Past Master David Lawson give an interesting talk on the one hundered year history of the Lodge, with explanations on how the lodge was formed and where it is going in the future.

In the risings the worshipful master presented John with a cheque to the value of £1425.90 on behalf of the members of the Lodge, to which John expressed his gratitude.

 

 

After closing the Lodge all retired to a fantastic festive board which was enjoyed by all present.  A raffle on the night raised the fabulous sum of £745. As a lasting memento everyone who attended received a special centenary glass.

 

 

Best wishes for future.
