The 85th annual Steamboat Dinner, hosted by the Sturgeon Bay Masonic Lodge, will be served March 14, 4-7 pm, at the Masonic Center, 31 S. 3rd Ave. in Sturgeon Bay. Shuttle buses will deliver diners to the front door from the Market Square parking lot, and this will be the seventh year when drive-up takeout will be available from a curbside tent.
Last year, 1,060 meals were served, with 614 of them purchased by friends of the lodge and donated to community members in need, including delivery to 402 area seniors and people in their homes. This is the first time the Kewaunee County Food Pantry has been included in the distribution, with more than 100 prepaid tickets for its clients. During the last 24 years, the members and friends of Henry S. Baird Lodge have paid for and donated 7,300 tickets for meals to Social Services, Lakeshore CAP and the Sunshine House.
Tickets are $16 per adult and free for children 14 and younger. Veterans and active-duty/reserve military personnel receive a $1 discount. To buy tickets in advance, visit steamboatdinner.com or call 920.737.3166.
