The Consistro Bistro
It is cold, wintry, and we are all tired of the cold weather. Let us take you away to a warm Tuscany village in the mountains of Italy. A candlelight dinner, filled with the musical sounds of the Tuscany countryside. Checkered tablecloths, bottles of Italian Chianti on the table, breadsticks, salads, pasta selection galore. Enjoy a relaxing Italian dinner with various types of pasta and sauces. Fresh baked focacia, ciabbata and baguettes with fresh extra virgin olive oil and pepper mills. Start the evening with antipasto appetizers of shrimp, cheeses, olives and meats. Follow dinner with Spumoni ice cream and coffee for dessert. Don't miss this extra special evening, meet new friends, bring friends and fill up a table. Join us on Friday and escape this winter weather.
The 2011 Spring Reunion Kick-off is coming up on Wednesday, March 9th. Do you have a friend who you think would enjoy Freemasonry? This event is designed just for them. We will have outstanding Masonic fellowship, a great prime rib dinner and a special program on Freemasonry featuring Ben Franklin. We will begin with social hour at 6:00 pm. Dress for the event is business casual but we encourage you to wear a Masonic shirt or pin if you have one.
This event is FREE for prospective members for the Blue Lodge or Scottish Rite with a reservation made by March 7th. The cost is $10 for Scottish Rite Masons. Please make your reservation by calling the SR office (515-288-8927) or via firstname.lastname@example.org.
