CHRISTMAS PARTY

This year’s party will be held on December 10th at 1:00pm.  This event is open to lodge and auxiliary members, widows, and their families.  Santa will have gifts for children ages 0 – 10.  The Italian Dancers will be performing and teaching a dance or two to the children. Please bring along donations of cookies, cakes, etc… for the cake walk so we have enough for each child to win at least once.  As always we will be collecting items for the local food pantry so please bring what you can spare.  In case of inclement weather that day please get a hold of Mary Steele at 515-201-1680 to make sure the event will take place.
