Our Lodge held its Annual Youth Banquet on Sunday, May 3rd. There were approximately 73 guests who enjoyed a great meal of pizza, salad and cookies served by officers. Thanks to all the volunteers and our terrific staff helped out with the event. Our Lodge was honored to have two State Senators present, John Keuhn and Les Seiler, to help with awards.
