We 're Celebrating !
2023 is a very special year for Monolithos Lodge as it marks 50 years since our consecration, and to mark this tremendous milestone, we are hosting a Grand Summer Ball.
But it doesn’t stop there, because we’ve got an awful lot more to celebrate too…
We’ve just seen the presentation of 50 year certificates to two of our most distinguished members. Worshipful Brother’s Dennis Forsyth and Peter Burdekin were respectively the very first, and the third initiates of our Lodge way back in April and May of 1973, and we are delighted they will both be in attendance at this momentous event.
In addition, this event also sees the welcome return of our traditional Ladies Night, so why not put on your finest, dress to impress, and join us for a spectacular summer evening of celebrations, fine dining, live music, and dancing.
We promise you a very warm welcome and an exceptionally special evening!
N.B. A "White Table" event is one which is also open to non-masons and their wives or partners - click here for more information "White Table"
