Thule Lodge Holds Corn Roast At Falcon’s Nest
FALCONER — The Thule Lodge, which is the Swedish organization formed 113 years ago, usually holds a corn roast in late August.
This year, due to the pandemic, the roast was held inside the Falcon’s Nest, following the restrictions because of the pandemic. Those entering had their masks, and there were a limited number attending. All were able to sit far from others, maintaining social distancing. The dinner was organized by lodge treasurer Loretta Smith and membership chairman Bernice Veights.
Lodge historian John Sipos welcomed all to the roast and set the order for those to get their food. The food this year was prepared and served by the 3C’s catering service. Served were ears of corn, potato salad, baked beans, barbecued chicken, rolls, eggs, and a marble cake for dessert.
Following the dinner, a brief monthly meeting was held with lodge chairman Tom Eckberg welcoming all. Lodge chaplain Diane K. Shaw gave the opening and closing messages. Since there were some guests present, chairman Eckberg declared the meeting open to all. Vice chairman Susan W. Sipos distributed the regalia for the officers, and also provided Swedish music during the dinner.
Sipos read a thank you for a lodge donation to the Bishop Hill VASA order historical record keeping center.
Treasurer Smith gave the financial report of the lodge, which was approved. The meeting award for the evening was presented to Vaughn Wilson by guest Kevin Washington of Maryland.
