President’s Sunday started with Mass celebrated by Fr. Barry Hughes at the chapel of Coloma School.
Over 70 members, wives and ladies attended the intimate and warm Mass. Circle member and Deacon Philip Pond assisted and the servers were Keiron, Rachel and McFarlane, children of Brother Mike McFarlane.
A buffet lunch and drinks were served at the home of President Terry and Shirley McCarthy with the food being provided by the ladies of the Circle.
The weather was perfect, warm and sunny, ideal for an afternoon in the garden.
The May Supper was held on Tuesday May 24th at Purley Downs Golf Club.
Croydon Circle were delighted to welcome as guests, Bro. John Lydon, President of Province 19, Bro. Peter Woodford Immediate Past Grand President, Bro. David Arundale Director of Province 19 and Bro. Kevin Rourke Immediate Past President of Province 19 who all attended with their wives.
The May Supper is the Circle’s opportunity to entertain our Ladies and wives and is one of the few ‘black tie’ events in the Circle’s calendar.
Terry McCarthy, Circle President, welcomed all the guests. Provincial President, Bro. John Lydon replied and thanked Croydon Circle for their great support for his Provincial Weekend in Bath later in the year.
The Chef at Purley Downs Golf Club produced an excellent meal and a great time was had by all.
