Lodge 109 March News
On Sunday, February 23, 2020, the day before the beginning of the Great Fast, Lodge 109 held its annual Pre-Lenten Fasengy celebration at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church.
The event featured a social after Liturgy complete with pizza and salad as well as a variety of sweet treats. Many of the parish children participated by wearing costumes while they paraded about the church hall ringing bells, tooting horns and chasing balloons while ethnic music played in the background. A few of the adults also participated by dancing the polka.
Lodge 109 cancelled its first quarter meeting due to the Coronavirus restrictions and plans for an Easter Egg Hunt on Palm Sunday, a bingo night for the veterans at the Butler Medical Center and a Matching Funds hoagie sale were all put on hold until further notice. The lodge is hoping the annual Flag Day ceremony and luncheon will not be affected by the ongoing closures surrounding the virus.
