In a continuing effort to make the Burning Taper your source for happy and upbeat Masonic news (see readers' comments on a previous article), I'm gleefully letting you know that the South Gate Masonic Lodge in Des Moines, Iowa will hold a beef and noodle dinner from 5 to 7 p.m. on Monday, March 12 at 1111 Randolph St. in Des Moines.
The cost for this mouth-watering plate of Hamburger Helper ® is, according to the news report, $7.00 for adults and $3.00 for children under five. No price is given for those ages 5-17, so either it's free, or you're not allowed to eat; I can't tell.
Happy health tip: If you're watching your waistline, avoid the noodles and just eat the beef.
But wait! There's more!
Rainbow Girls Chapter No. 27 of Southington, Connecticut will be serving the annual St. Paddy's Day Corned Beef Dinner at Friendship Lodge No. 33 on Wednesday, March 21st. The Stewards usually buy the food and do the cooking, while the Rainbow Girls help to set up the dinner, serve the food, and help with the cleanup. All the "green" raised goes to the Rainbow Girls chapter. Last year they raised over $200.
Thanks to W. Bro. Tom Accuosti of the Tao of Masonry for this info!
