It’s finally here, the day we all wait for all month…Pasty Supper. As I write this there are brothers making fresh Pasties down in the kitchen of the lodge.
The pasties are made from scratch on the day of the suppers. About nine years ago some brothers went up north and learned how to make them from another lodge that had a successful pasty program. Mike Beck and Steve Suchek have been the organizers and the life of the program. Steve is away on a deployment right now and the rest of us are helping Mike keep the program alive and growing. We start around 10 am making them and by 3pm they are done and the supper prep begins.
The supper is from 5-7 pm the third Friday of the month. The only exception will be next month and it will be held on the 22nd of November for our raffle. We also offer take out and frozen sales if that is what you desire.
Speaking of the raffle, if you haven’t got your ticket or two yet stop by and purchase one or two. It will be a 50/50 raffle with the prize being $10000 if we sell all 2000 tickets. The tickets are $10 a piece so the odds are really good.If you don’t know where to go, send me a message here and we will make sure you get one. This raffle will help the lodge with its several local events that it does with the community, such as scholarships.
We still haven’t hit the $1000 night for the suppers, but we are getting really close. Stop in for a taste of the U.P. today.
A big thanks goes out to all the folks that make this happen. It is a large task to accomplish the suppers and the pasty builds. I tip my hat to all of you. Thanks again for what you do.
