The Singleton Lodge Annual Crab Feast is not a creation of recent history. Our Lodge and its predecessors have been hosting crab feasts and picnics at least as early as 1954 (according to our minutes) and perhaps earlier than 1922 (according to the Washington Herald newspaper). On June 26, 1954, Lebanon Lodge's Fellow Craft Club held a crab feast at the Kenneth Nash Post Hall at a price of $1.75 per adult and .75 per child. In 1987, the year before the merger, our beloved W.B. Fred Gore and Gary Doyles held picnics a Fred's cottage at Piney Point and Gary's home, respectively. The following year, the first WM. R. Singleton-Hope-Lebanon Lodge #7 crab feast and picnic occurred on August 20, 1988 at W.B. Doyle's residence. Ever since then, our annual tradition continued year after year hosted at member's houses within the DMV and eventually at the Franconia Moose Lodge in the mid 2000s.
