    I don't donw how other lodges do it in other states or areas, but at our lodge we have a fellowship meal before the meeting.

    I am Junior Warden of my lodge and I am in charge of making sure that there is a meal provided.

    I was just wondering what sort of meals do you have at your meetings.

    Here is the actual menu for the May Stated Meeting.


    Sicilian Orzo Salad and Assorted Rolls
    Braised Beef Short Ribs in Au Jus
    Swiss Chicken Stuffed Mushrooms
    Asparagus and Bay Scallops in a Creamy Onion Sauce
    Garlic Mashed Potatoes with Parmagiano Reggiano
    Caramel Apple Cheesecake


    My brother just started a catering business and is helping me out.

    What do you think.

    We charge $12 a head

    Sounds like I need to visit PA it sounds delicious.

    Our dinners are $8.00 typical meal Salad, roast beef, potato, vegetable, desert. All you can eat on the beef and we still make money.

    It can be tough but I mix things up with chili in the winter and kielbasa and beans, I try to keep them guessing.

    I won't miss being responsible to keep hungry men happy.

    Belong to 3 Blue Lodges, but my schedule only permits me to attend one. The one that I attend is a Daylight Lodge that meets on Saturday morning. Our Stewards are paid for their food expenses by the Lodge. Members are not charged for their meals. Wives are welcome to have breakfast with us.

    We have simple things usually, whatever can be cooked quickly. It tends to be breakfast a good bit...

    We usually do a pot-luck. No one knows what's on the menu till it arrives. Someone will always do a pot of spaghetti or a lasagna or soup or some other such thing that's relatively cheap and easy to fix for a large group. Stewards do the prep and clean-up and accept help from other more able bodied members when the dishes need doing, etc.

    We have hot dogs, hamburgers, covered dish in warm weather. When it gets cooler we have chicken stew, vegetable soup, and sometimes a fish fry. We are just a small country lodge. Oh, and we have a box for "donations" to cover expenses.
