Good Shepherd Bazaar

Hopefully, we will have a booth at the GSH Bazaar again this year on Thursday, November 7. Because several of our members continued learning about ceramics last summer (2012) and made Christmas Ornaments that are for sale all-year round. Our booth will have baked goods, smelly jellies, and of course, ornaments. If you need a great gift for a friend or teacher, stop by our booth (or come to breakfast or to our meetings to make your purchase)!

Breakfast with Santa

Mark your calendars for Saturday, December 7 for Breakfast with Santa at the Masonic Center. We hope you will bring your kids, grandkids, nieces & nephews! This was a HUGE success last December. Watch the newspapers & website for more information. Our menu will be limited for just this event.

The Fostoria Chamber of Commerce helped us sponsor this event last year when they held “Whoville” Holiday Open House in Fostoria. The kiddies visited with Santa who gave each child a candy cane. Each child was given crayons and coloring pages to keep them busy until their breakfast arrived. A special visit was from Dr. Seuss’s Grinch. Several Star members help to organize, serve, & prepare breakfasts alongside our Masonic Brothers.

Our Lodge Brothers prepare breakfast your way every second & fourth Saturday in September thru June from 7 am- 10 am. The menu has eggs, omelets, home fries, pancakes, bacon or sausage and beverage. Proceeds help charities and scholarships.

 

Mother/Daughter Tea

The Fostoria Chamber of Commerce asked Stars to host a mother-daughter tea on Saturday, May 4. A brunch was served to the attendees. Our dining room had a tearoom atmosphere. Doc Buttons provided his magic balloon tricks for entertainment. The tables had linens and china teacups and saucers. Several different teas were served during the morning brunch. It was very nice! Several mothers said it was a great teaching tool for their daughters and granddaughters.
