CONWAY — On Sunday, July 15, the Mount Washington Valley Masonic Lodge opens its doors once again to host its monthly breakfast buffet. This month the breakfast will benefit Artery Council Cultural Center. The Lodge is located above the movie theater in North Conway Village, across from Schouler Park. All you can eat pancakes, sausage, ham, corned beef hash, baked beans, potatoes, fresh fruit, chef attended omelet station, cereals, oatmeal, pastries, juices, tea, hot chocolate, and coffee are all on the menu, for a small donation to the hosted charity. Breakfast is served from 8 to 11 a.m., and the dining hall is handicapped accessible.
All of the net proceeds raised will go directly to the charity. All of the costs are paid by the lodge and supported by the Valley Originals. The breakfasts are offered to any local non-profit charity in the area as a public service by the lodge.
The Masonic lodges throughout New Hampshire have been active members of New Hampshire communities for centuries. Each year they contribute tens of thousands of dollars to local communities. Their work helps make possible college scholarships, local DARE programs, help for the needy, and youth sports teams just to mention a few. They are well known for their charity work nationally supporting research and services that fight Alzheimer’s disease, eye disease, and schizophrenia. Perhaps their most well known public charity is the Shriner’s Burn Institutes and Hospitals for crippled children that operate throughout the country. Here in New Hampshire they operate the Scottish Rite Children’s Learning Center in Nashua where young people overcome the challenges of dyslexia.

Today there are thousands of members affiliated with the Masonic Family throughout New Hampshire. In addition to the “Blue Lodges” that make up the core membership of the fraternity, Scottish Rite and York Rite Masons extend the reach of the community-based Blue Lodges. Shriner’s bring fun and service to many communities. Demolay and Rainbow programs offer a place for young men and women to learn leadership and service under the sponsorship of local Masonic lodges. Chapters of the Order of the Eastern Star often partner with local Blue lodges to offer Masonic affiliated fellowship and service for ladies.
