The Masonic Brothers of King Solomon’s Lodge No.7. welcomed friends, neighbors, and brothers from across Connecticut to the 7th Annual “Thunder on the Rock” Chili Cook Off to raise money for the KSL#7 High School Senior Scholarship fund on March 26 at the Woodbury Brewing Company.

In typical King Solomon’s Lodge fashion, the competitors brought the heat. In total, 10 brothers brought their best Chili to compete toe-to-toe for the honor of lifting the famed “Golden Ladle.” This year’s victor, Buzz Grayson, was a visitor from a Lodge in New Haven, CT.

Donations raised at the event are going to go to local high school seniors at Nonnewaug and Pomperaug High Schools made working with King Solomon’s a no brainer.

“All-in-all the night was a success,” said Lorenzo Gaudioso, one of this Lodge’s organizers, “not only because we raised money for a good cause but because we came together as a community to enjoy a wonderful night filled with laughter, comradery and positive vibes. We could not ask for more than that.”

The brothers of King Solomon’s Lodge are already working diligently on their next event, “Fire on the Rock”, which will be held on Friday, June 21st at King Solomon’s Lodge in Woodbury. For more information feel free to email or call (475)675-0575.
