FREDERICKTOWN — This Saturday, after a 17-year absence, Fredericktown’s Thrall Lodge 170 revived its monthly First Saturday Breakfast.

Before the sun had risen, Thrall Lodge 170, 12 E. Sandusky St., was bustling with brethren, as lodge members prepared a menu of pancakes, eggs-to-order, sausage links, wheat toast, coffee and orange drink. The breakfast was open to the public, inviting men, women and children from the community.

This year marks Lance Gallogly’s second time holding the title of Master of the Lodge. As master, he was determined to re-establish the First Saturday Breakfast tradition he so dearly treasured as a child.

“I was up tossing and turning most of the night; I was worried because this is a big undertaking in a way for us,” an excited Gallogly told the News. “We have 135 paid members. We’re hoping to get at least 40-50 people today.”
