News and Events

Although there have been no entries on this page for a while, the Lodge continues to be active.  Our regular annual events include the Memorial Day pancake breakfast, and, also on the Memorial Day weekend, we serve chowder and strawberry shortcake to the visitors at the Knox Museum's "Boots on the Ground" celebration of serving military personnel and veterans.  In July we host a lobster dinner for members of the Maj. Gen. Henry Knox Lodge from Boston.  In recent summers we have held a series of crabmeat roll luncheons on alternate Wednesdays.  These have become a very successful form of fundraising for the Lodge.

Earlier news:

On the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend, May 28th 2016, we served over 500 portions of Strawberry Shortcake, along with an equally prodigious amount of fish chowder, to the visitors to the Traveling Vietnam Wall, which was on display at Montpelier.  It was an honor to be part of such a moving event.  Here is a photo of the group as we set the booth up:

50-year pins awarded to two brothers!

At the special open meeting held on May 2nd. 2013, 50-year pins were presented to Bros. True Hall and Keith Monaghan.  Our photographs below show highlights of the event, which was conducted by Lodge Secretary Doug Rackliff.  True Hall was accompanied by his great-grandson Parker, while his lapel emblem was pinned on by his daughter Sandra.
