Oyster stew and fellowship on the menu

Members of Occident Lodge No. 48, Free and Accepted Masons of Washington, led by its master, Mike Carmel, welcomed Ron Horn, the district deputy, for his official visit in May. It coincided with the annual oyster stew night prepared and served by long-time member Dobby Wiegardt, who was the Master of the lodge in 1962. Wiegardt said his recipe changes over the years but starts with oysters, milk, and “one of two other things, but not much else.”Type your paragraph here.
