On Sunday, Nov. 24, the Mount Washington Valley Masonic Lodge opens its doors once again to host a breakfast buffet to benefit Bartlett Recreation Department, Breakfast with Santa. 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. This popular event is a “must attend” to support local charities and is a great way to start your Sunday. Breakfast is served from 8 to 11 a.m., and the dining hall is handicapped accessible.
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.
