Masonic golfers in Lincolnshire have started to make plans to commemorate the centenary of their Association – which began as a series of charity events involving Lodges in Lincoln – even though it is still three years away.
It has now spread across not only the whole of our Province, but to neighboring Provinces too – including Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Warwickshire and Staffordshire.
However, charity remains a key guiding principle. Since its formation, the Association has given almost £45,000 to non-Masonic and Masonic recipients.
Secretary Mick Wright said: “Right from the outset our objective has been to have fun and support charity, and that is as true today as it was when we were founded in 1922. We feel certain that our Centenary is a significant landmark not just in Lincolnshire, but in Freemasonry as a whole, and very worthy of celebrating. “To continue raising charity funds we must encourage more participation from the many masons in the Province to share in our fun.”
The Association offers 14 trophies in its competitions, the newest of which is the Roy Spavin statuette, won for the first time in the year of its inception by Roy’s son, W Bro Steve Spavin.
