"You will always beBeautiful in my eyesAnd the passing years will showThat you will always growEver more beautiful in my eyes."
The above song chorus seems to be the theme of the night. The Brethren, thru our Director of Music - WBro Manny Placido chose the song to reflect the sentiments of the Brethren. The Ladies of LJR and friends richly deserved the adoration, even coinciding with the celebration of Valentine's Day 2016.
The Wor Master, WBro Micvi Fidel chose The Epping Club's Grand Ballroom 3 and 4 as the venue of this year's Ladies Night. The classy venue matched the classy Ladies who attended the function last 12th February 2016.
The night started with cocktails and canapes at the foyer of the club. This gave the Brethren, their Ladies and friends time to wind down, have a couple of drinks, chat and catch up and take the opportunity to have some 'selfies' and group photos.
The formal portion of the night started when WBro Khris Albano, the compere for the night; announced for everyone to be seated and Wor Bro Micvi Fidel promptly welcomed and thanked the Brethren and guests for taking this special time to treat the Ladies for a pre-Valentine's Day three-course sit down dinner.
As expected the night was a great night to remember with a lot of dancing and games for couples, with the traditional offering of flower/chocolates to the ladies.
A big thank you to all who attended, especially those who organised the event; but more especially to the Ladies who make our day great, our Lodge Banquet and our lives truly happy.
As our Wor Master said:
"Thanks for everyone for a successful event !!!
"It was truly a fantastic night out and so special to celebrate Valentines Day with our dear Ladies. We had a great time and it is always wonderful to see everyone and meet new people.
I feel very lucky to have met all our guests and look forward to many more fun times together.
"Our biggest thanks goes to WBro. Director of Music Manny Placido for organising a live band to entertain us, and again shown his choreographic skills has brought a great delight to prepare a special number presentation to our ladies, that was terrific and we all enjoyed ourselves so much. Also, special thanks to our WBro. Director of Ceremony Khris Albano for emceeing the event, we all know that the emcee is the glue that holds the event together. It was great to have him in control and directing the night and ensuring everyone had a great time.
Many thanks to VWBro Romy Nieto for being the photographer for our special night. Our pictures truly captured the essence of the night, they were all absolutely priceless. Congratulations and thank you to three of you for all your hard work during the night."
