Dart Lodge 2641 and a fantastic evening
May has been a busy month! And Dartmouth is fast becoming, not only somewhere the seals are frequenting, but also somewhere we are finding ourselves spending quite a bit of time.
After we presented a talk at Dartmouth Yacht Club in April, we received an offer to hold a presentation at the Dart Lodge in May.
I met with the lovely Harry Escott who invited myself and Lee to an evening where I presented a talk in the fantastic Temple on the first floor. What a stunning building! We then enjoyed a lovely meal with the group, their wives and friends. It was a fabulous night and we were presented with an amazing cheque for £356 from Wor. Bro. Stephen Gill, Treasurer, from their generous donation and the raffle.
This donation was amazing. We do all we do as volunteers, and every penny donated is vital. This was a totally unexpected amount, and very much appreciated.
This was a great evening with some lovely people, in a building most of us have no idea even exists. You just don't know what is around the corner - literally!
And as we got onto the higher ferry, a seal hauled out onto the pontoon just in front of the Yacht Club - what more could I possibly want from such a lovely evening!
Here's their write up for their Provincial Website:
The members of The Dart Lodge no. 2641 were pleased to welcome their wives, partners and friends at their May meeting.
After our regular meeting we all enjoyed a relaxed festive board with good company. On the agenda was a talk by Sarah Greenslade from The Seal Project based in Brixham.
She provided a slideshow, souvenirs, and expanded on the work by the Project which takes her and her team around the Westcountry coastline.
Sarah and her team are available for presentation and talks. Details are on their website. Sarah's presentation was well received and gave us all an insight and appreciation of her work. After her talk the Lodge presented a cheque for £356, which represented a donation and the proceeds from the evening raffle.
Seen here is Sarah receiving the cheque from Wor. Bro. Stephen Gill PPrJGW. Treasurer, and acting WM for the evening.
