held their annual pensioners Christmas lunch in December at the Harrow Centre. Guests received a glass or two of sherry on arrival, followed by a tour of the Masonic Museum, which they all loved. Then for a 3 course dinner, washed down with wine. Members of Citadel Lodge acted as Stewards. This was followed by an inter-table singing competition and joke telling, whilst they all go away with a Christmas present at the end. 40 OAP's of Harrow were entertained, their comments were:- "this is our Christmas, we have looked forward to this all year around, we went elsewhere last year, not as good as here, we thank you so much !"
