On June 12th, the brethren of the Lodge of Honour No 379, held their first of hopefully many Summer Potlucks. All lodge members were invited along with families and friends, plus a few potential members.
To make the most of the sunny summer’s days, members gathered to enjoy each other’s company and for family and friends to get to know each other.
The Lodge of Honour prides itself on a full Summer Social calendar, with multiple Curry Club visits, our Potluck, and several other events. Our social and curry calendar can been seen here.
In case you are wondering; the big blue plate (bottom right) is normalised Butternut Squash Carpaccio with Basil & Parsley Salsa, Pumpkin Seeds to serve with Creme Fraise, prepared by one of our latest member.
The Start of a New Lodge Tradition
Taking advantage of the rare and unique ethnic diversity of the Lodge membership, lunch consisted of an array of dishes from all over the world! Malaysian Beef Rendang, Pickled Vegetables and Nasi Impit, Pakistani Channa and Naan, French Caponata and Baguettes, Pulled Ox Cheeks, Coronation Chicken, and Fried Sweet Potatoes were just some of the many dishes served. To finish, we also treated ourselves to a variety of cakes (Cheese Cake, Swiss Roll, Fruit Tarts) and other desserts. Everyone was very full, and we broadened many palettes that afternoon!
Special thanks to our Senior Deacon for lending his marquee, the Inner Guard for use of his garden, and to everyone who brought such delicious food!
It was a nice sunny day, and a very enjoyable time for all. The families enjoyed getting to know one another and were able to enjoy a piece of what we are so lucky to share with each other all the time!
We look forward to getting together as a Lodge at the end of the month in July for our next Curry Club visit. For more information on our Curry Club, or to learn more about our summer Social Calendar, contact us using the form on this page.
