Event description

Description

Brethren & Friends,


After the labors of the Lodge have been completed, Freemasons frequently meet at tables to enjoy a repast in common, in England and America, (this repast is generally called a banquet, and the lodge is said to be, during its. continuance, at refreshment. The Worshipful Master, of course, presides, assisted by the Senior and Junior Wardens, and it is considered most proper that; no profanes should be present. But with these exceptions, there are no rules specially laid down for the government of Masonic banquets.


During the eighteenth century, and even at the commencement of the nineteenth, refreshments in English Lodges were taken during the sessions of the Lodge and in the Lodge room, and then, of course, rigid rules were in existence for the government of the fraternity, and for the regulation of the forms in which the refreshments should be partaken. But this system has long grown obsolete, and the Masonic banquets of the present day differ very little from those of other societies, except, perhaps, in a more strict observance of the rules of order, and in the exclusion of all non-Masonic visitors.
