Victoria Lodge No. 2
Several fundraising projects were mounted to assist with financing the new facilities. In 1987 the Lodge held a flea market, bean supper, pancake breakfast and a car draw. The Lobster Supper Take-Out which began in 1988 as a major fundraiser for the basement project, has continued as an annual springtime event. Profits from the first lobster supper totalled $1100. In 1999 profits of $3928 were reported from the sale of seven hundred and thirty-six suppers. (Minutes, June 7, 1999)
In March 2000 several members of the Lodge volunteered to assist in a building project at Camp Gencheff as part of a joint effort involving several Masonic Bodies. An Appreciation Night including a dinner of mussels and lobsters was held for the volunteers on November 24, 2000. Fifty people attended and each volunteer received the “Order of Gencheff” in the form of an Appreciation Certificate. (Minutes, December 4, 2000)
