The Lodge of Honour 379 of Bath recently held their annual social event, very appropriately at at Tracy Park’s Masons restaurant. The Sunday lunch was organised for our members and their friends and family to come together socially, renew friendships and make new acquaintances. The event was well attended with a good number bringing their friends and family.
The Masons’ Restaurant at Tracy Park is one of the more publicly accessible areas of the estate that contain a large number of Masonic symbols and emblems. These are attributed to Rev. Whales Raikes Davy who inherited then estate in 1856 and added the symbols extensively throughout.
The buffet-style carvery Lunch was excellent with a choice of three meat options (turkey, pork and beef) with a good selection of accompanying variety of potatoes, vegetables, Yorkshire pudding and the all important gravy. There was also a wide selection of starters which included soup and fresh rolls and a range of cold dishes.
The desserts were, as too be expected, mouth-wateringly beautifully presented in a cold cabinet. For the younger members of the party, ice cream and a wide array of sweets were the most popular option.
A raffle was held with a range of gifts generously donated. This raised a good amount which will go to charity and alms.
Interesting discussions ensued in trying to figure out what some of the symbolic emblems depicted in the dining area. If you would like to have a go, have a closer look at some of the pictures taken.
All in all, it was a very enjoyable afternoon and the WM thanks all those who attended and supported the event.
