FAMILY NIGHT HONORING MASONIC WIDOWS and FUNERAL COMMITTEE (DATE CHANGED)

Each year we like to honor our Masonic Widows and our Funeral Committee members with a covered dish dinner.  This year’s event is on Saturday, September 27th, 2014 at 6:30 P.M.  If you have not planned to attend, now is the time to include this event on your calendar.
Our Masonic Widows are a special group of people and are very dear to our hearts.  It is natural that as we honor the Masonic Widows, we would also honor the Funeral Committee at the same time.  Their functions tie the hearts of the two groups together.  For our covered dish dinner the lodge will provide meat, bread, and drinks. Others are invited to bring a salad, vegetable or dessert.
