Lodge bowties are available

The Lodge has had custom bow ties made, which are available at $40 each – which will help support the Lodge’s efforts in the community and on campus.

They not only look great (a black tie with a subtle Lodge logo), but are made by Boston-based OoOTie . These BU graduate-entrepreneurs really make a snazzy tie!

Contact our Worshipful Master to order one today!

Lodge BBQ helps dog rescue agency

On Saturday, August 16th, 2014 over 30 people joined us on the banks of the Charles River at the DCR Herter Park in Allston. This event was organized by Francesca Romagnolo, the wife of our Worshipful Master, to benefit Peace and Paws Dog Rescue.

Huge thank yous go to our local partners who helped sponsor the event and make it a huge success: Indigo at Polka Dog Bakery, who donated dog treats which raised over $100 in our silent auction; Leslie Pfeiffer at Blue Ribbon BBQ who donated a $50 gift card for auction; and Pete from Unleashed by Petco for all of the goodie-bag party favors for the dogs!

We were able to raise over $350 dollars from the day alone (many who couldn’t make it generously gave donations online). We also had a collection of dog treats, toys, food, and supplies.

Peace and Paws Dog Rescue (www.peaceandpaws.org) is a registered 501c3, who does great work matching the world’s best people with the world’s best dogs. They are based in Hillsborough, NH and would welcome your donations of supplies as well as financial contributions. The Lodge would be happy to facilitate your donation if you’d like.

Lodge camping trip a success!

On Saturday July 27th, ten of us left Boston and headed up to Mt. Cardigan in New Hampshire. Most of us didn’t have much camping experience, let alone any equipment, but we shared an unforgettable trip! We had a group campsite, a nice 6 hour hike up multiple peaks, and kept the fire going until the wee hours of the morning! If it hadn’t have started raining we’d probably have stayed longer. One thing is for sure, we all look forward to the next trip. Stay tuned!
