Greetings, I am attempting to collect as many versions of the Tylers toast as possible so as to add a little variety to our festive board.
I would be most grateful if brethren would be kind enough to email me with any Tylers toasts which they may have. Once I have a collection I will post them on this forum so others may add a little variety to their own festive boards.

Please email to martin@tracingboards.com

A Table Lodge is rarely done in the US.      Only one Lodge in my GL currently does a formal Table Lodge annually.    ... I think it would also interesting to know while Lodges & GL in the US does a Table Lodge and what is the Tyler's toast given?

We have a very nice Tylers Toast which is done after every meeting and I find it very fitting and when I travel , I think of it as I feel included.
 
  "To all poor and distressed Freemasons, where ever they may be
On land, or sea or in the air
wishing them a speey relief to their sufferings
and a safe return to their own native lands, should they so desire,"

There is only one Lodge in our Jurisdiction that does a Tyler's Toast. They do it at the Festive Board after the regular meeting...so not at a table Lodge. 

They do the same as listed above, except instead of "...or in the air," they say "...or under the sea"then they all join hands singing, "The Grand Lodge above, the Grand Lodge above; may we all meet again, in the Grand Lodge above..." Three times, finishing it off saying, "...but not too soon."
...when the guns are the fenceposts; the cars are the doghouse; and the telephone no longer rings.

The Craftsmen’s work of day is done, the Brethren now must part.
"A Tyler’s Toast" our Master cries, "to warm each faithful heart."
For though we go our separate ways, our bond is ever strong.
The magic of the mystic tie will draw us back ere long.

Until then, think, each time you meet a Brother down on luck,
Whose life is marked by poverty, perhaps by illness struck.
That "If not for the Grace of God, I might walk in his shoes,
I wonder how much I can spare, to help him meet his dues."

And spare a wish for Brethren, who through no fault, their own,
May find themselves in foreign lands, and labouring alone.
That once the day shall come when they no longer need to roam,
May each enjoy a swift and happy voyage to his home.

Long may our Lodges welcome Craftsmen, travelling to the East.
And may our secrets guide good hearts, until each soul’s release
To wing its own way Heav'nward, these heartfelt words ingrain,
We're happy to meet, sorry to part, happy to meet again.

To our next merry meeting.

by Iain Macdonald

To all charitable and distressed freemasons, wherever dispersed over Earth's broad surface, A speedy relief to their suffering and a safe return to their native land, if they so desire."

Greetings and thank you for all of your responses. I particularly like the ending of Meeting in the grand Lodge above, "...but not too soon."

It is nice to experience the differences in ceremony at different lodges. Our Lodge visited another recently and all were impressed by a section in the third degree where the symbolism of the masters apron is communicated to the candidate. Our Lodge had never seen or done this before so it was adopted and last night our third degree candidate was the first to experience the new edition to our ritual. I do feel that this is one way that a Lodge can evolve, by adopting fresh ideas from others.

It's kind of like emulating that which you see praiseworthy and others.

Thanks again for all the responses and good luck on your path.

Which One, I would love to go.  It seems in my reading Freemasonry has let a lot of the things tthat were done slip away.

The 13th annual 'Formal' (black tie) Table Lodge was held by Rose Hill Lodge of Columbus, Ga on Aug 18th after the 4th District Convention.   Tickets were $30 or $35.    

Maybe next year I can attend.

Several Lodges in my area do Table Lodges regularly.

Hope you can and I have a question.
$30 or $35......is that an estimation?

Due to work / family commitments, I rarely have the ability to travel so I don't know about other lodges. The table lodge was allowed to slip away in our lodge but has been revived in the past few years. Our lodge is dry from my understanding but the previous DDGM would allow a dispensation for wine if requested, and I believe he would even bring the wine. I need to check with our current DDGM. I've sat both JW and SW for table lodges and look forward to sitting WM next year. Our District School of Instruction teaches the table lodge as well.
