There are some jobs which are a part of an officer’s responsibilities in a Masonic Lodge.  An accepted chore for the Stewards is to provide refreshments at our meetings.  Over the past 20 years that chore has evolved into one of major responsibilities.  It is now expected by the membership of Irving Lodge that on Stated Meeting nights, a satisfying meal will be provided prior to the meeting.  On Degree nights they provide the same before the Meeting and on Monday evenings when no degrees are scheduled, a snack bar is supplied.  This is more than just a minor chore for the Stewards and deserves a show of appreciation from the members to the Stewards.   Shake their hands and thank them for their extra efforts to satisfy you.
