Masons' Hoagies are the Best

by Paul Saulnier
February 5, 2017

Twenty-five years of serving Philadelphia hoagies to Holliston's sports fans.

The Masons' Mount Hollis Lodge on Washington Street is a familiar site to residents of Holliston. The Masons go about their business of helping neighbors without much fanfare but the hoagie sale brings the building to life for a few hours on Superbowl day - even busier when the Patriots are playing.

A convenient driveup window serves those who preordered.

Inside the lodge the Masons have the production line down pat. As the roll passes from one station to the next, it gets stuffed with all the great ingredients of a perfect Italian-style hoagie.

The last stop is the wrapping station managed by a Mason Wrapper.

Cochairs of the event were George Cadwell, above left, and Joe Galiastro. Joe explained the hoagie tradition. The event was conceived 25 years ago to support the D.A.R.E. program in the Police Department. The Masons decided to sell hoagies. Why not subs, the tradional New England version? The Mason behind the idea was originally from Philly and drove down there to purchase the real Philly rolls that he was used to. Twenty-fives later, the Masons honor the tradition and efforts of the originator.

For those who went inside to pick up their hoagie, a variety of cookies were available for dessert.

Above, a customer reacts to the spread and aroma of a dozen hoagies made fresh and ready for pickup. The event gets bigger every year and this year about 360 hoagies will be going out the door.

Above, Reagan Boice, left, and Alex Imgrund entice passersby to stop and buy their cookies.

There are approximately 100 members in the Mount Hollis Lodge. For more information on the Masons, check out their web site: http://mounthollislodge.org/
