Library Matching Funds Bingo
Members of Lodge 17 assisted the Taylor Community Library and the Abington Community Library with their American Girl and Lego Bingo on Sunday, August 18, 2019. The event featured American Girl Dolls and Legos as prizes for the 20 bingo games. There was a selection of food items for sale and a large assortment of homemade baked goods. There were also basket and 50/50 fundraisers. GCU coloring books and crayons were given to all of the children. This was a Matching Funds event. The event was part of the PA Forward initiative promoting the value of libraries in the 21st century.
St. Nicholas Byzantine Catholic Church held their Flea Market on Saturday & Sunday, September 14-15 and Saturday, September 21 at the Social Center. GCU lodge members assisted throughout, and were responsible for the kitchen where homemade ethnic foods were available. The crowds were endless and the food sold out early. A special thanks goes out to the Home Office for printing the fundraising tickets.
November Collections-During the month of November, the lodge will be collecting food for the poor in our area and used eyeglasses for the Lions Club. Please contribute.
