Newton Lodge #59 Trip to Iowa Stars
Last night Newton Lodge #59 sponsored a "Night at the Iowa Stars". We did not have a big group that went, but we all enjoyed each other's company. We had a great dinner at the Latin King restaurant in Des Moines before we went down to the Wells Fargo arena for the game. The Iowa Stars played the Chicago Wolves, unfortunately they did not win. The Wolves beat the Stars 3 to 1. There were a lot of Mardi Gras "partiers" in the bleachers. I told our Worshipful Master that next year, we could have our "boys" dressed up like that. The W.M. thought that might be a "stretch". This was one of those new things that we tried, hopefully next year we will have a bigger crowd. The main thing is that we tried something new and those of us that were there, enjoyed the evening with each other.
