Welcome to our Lodge! 

Jim Clark, Exalted Ruler 2019-2020

How quickly the year passes! I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for the support extended to me and my suite of officers. Our goal in the beginning was to continue lodge improvements and strive to make this the great lodge that it is. Our membership continues to rise and volunteerism within the community continues to shine. My year may be coming to an end, but there is still work to be done. Please join me in my continued support to our new Exalted Ruler - Elect Bonnie Skidds and all her new officers. Thank you, Jim Clark, Exalted Ruler.

An important reminder to our Members  

FRIDAY NIGHT SUPPERS – THEY’RE  BACK ! ! !  

Friday Night Suppers began on September 20th . We are requesting volunteers to help with serving and assistance in the kitchen. It is important for the existence of this weekly event. Please contact Jim Clark @ 603 817-5512 if you are interested in volunteering. Last year’s Suppers were successful and tips collected went to the purchase of a new security camera system and paint for Lodge improvements. Please remember that the Lodge depends heavily on this event to support the needs and operating costs of the Lodge. Please support us by dining with us when you can. Friday Night Suppers are the same format as before. This fall we will be running two Friday Night Suppers per month. Two choices of an entrée will be posted in the lounge for one week prior to the Friday Night Supper. Entrées include a salad, potato, rolls and a Chef’s sweet. Orders for a meal may be given to a bartender, or called in (332-9700 ext 3) by NO LATER THAN Wednesday before the supper. Suppers are served between 5:00 PM and 7:00 PM Friday evenings. Please turn in your meal ticket to the server no later than 6:45 PM. Pay the bartender when you order or pay when you arrive on Friday night. NOTE: IF YOU HAVE A PARTY OF MORE THAN 4 PEOPLE, PLEASE NOTIFY THE BARTENDER WHEN ORDERING YOUR TICKETS

Friday Night Suppers are temporarily suspended due to the Corona Virus Outbreak.
