There were nearly 40 in attendance from Roses in Concord Conclave No 185, partners and brethren of Prosperity Lodge 5206 then joined the Secret Monitor brethren for the meal following the meeting. The conclave was left open at the end of the evening for the visitors to have a look and to have questions asked about the order. The evening came together in the hope that a ‘white table’ style of event may generate some interest which would lead to new members joining OSM. Supreme ruler Gordon Fletcher is also the Secretary of Prosperity Lodge, The Worshipful Master of Prosperity is Les Bond, who just happens to be the Secretary of Roses in Concord so a joint event was very easy to arrange!

A great night where every lady took home a rose for Valentines day.

Many thanks to Steve Crowther for this article and photos.
