Traditionally, upon completion of Masonic labors, a repast was attended and enjoyed by all the Members, as the Lodge was said to be at refreshment. In the early nineteenth century, a much more formal approach to refreshment was adopted by French Freemasons. It was termed a Loge de Table, or Table Lodge. The Table Lodge was opened in the Entered Apprentice degree for the purpose of allowing Brothers who had received the first degree to be present for the occasion. A similar practice was adopted by our Lodge 17 years ago by Worshipful Walter Schoepf, Past Master 2005. Since then, this tradition has continued and the annual Hillsborough No. 25 Table Lodge has become an event that Brothers from around the State look forward to each year.
In previous Table Lodges, we enjoyed fellowship and great food with over 130 Brothers in attendance. Below is an example of our multiple course meal:
The upcoming 17th Annual Table Lodge will be no exception! The menu may change, but the fellowship and spirit of the event will only get better! You must purchase your ticket online. We look forward to your attendance!
The 2017 Table Lodge is scheduled for Tuesday, September 5, 2017, 6:30pm sharp.
