Lodge Building Fundraiser Is Big Success

Our recently building fundraiser was a success.  Members, friends, neighbors and those who just saw the signs, stopped in to pick up a basket of peaches and have a delicious lunch of our famous box chicken.

We hope everyone enjoyed the meals and peaches enough to join us next year.
