SHAWVILLE April 12, 2018
On Thursday evening, over 100 people came out to the Royal Enniskillen Loyal Orange Lodge 27 in Shawville for an evening of food and friendship.
The annual pancake supper, which has been a tradition at the hall for many decades, is one of the main fundraisers in the yearly calendar, explained senior member Lee Murphy.
A team of about a dozen volunteers were hard at work in the kitchen, laying out various salads and desserts for the buffet line, or flipping flapjacks on the griddle.
The Orange Order is a fraternal protestant organization named after the Dutch Prince William of Orange, who defeated the Catholic King James II in 1690. Though it got its start in Northern Ireland, the Order came to Canada in the 1800s via soldiers in the British Army.
Prior to the festivities, the Lodge's Worshipful Master Allison Corrigan announced that one of their members would be recognized for her commitment to the organization over the years.
