150th Anniversary of Yorktown Lodge 345 /Community Day and Car Show
Event Location: Yorktown Lodge and Marrow’s Meadow.
Event Description: On April 2, 1870 a few men received the charter for Yorktown Lodge 345. The Members took an oath “I believe my home, my church or temple, my lodge, and my community deserve my best work, my modest pride, my earnest faith, and my deepest loyalty, as I perform my duty “to visit the sick, relieve the distressed, bury the dead, and educate the orphan” and as I work with others to build a better world because in spirit and in truth, I am, and must always be, grateful to my Creator, faithful to my Country, and fraternal to my fellowman;” to this day we do our best to keep the oath. At one time there were 10 lodges in Delaware County, it is sad to say we are the last one.
We are going have to have on April 25th A Community day and Car Show with an entry fee of $25.00 for the Cars, raffles, and ask for donations of pillows, blankets, toiletries, can goods, puzzles and games for local shelters, local food pantries, and the Ronald McDonald House. We are planning to invite some of the Charities/Groups we help (American Cancer Society, Lupus of Indiana, Second Harvest…ETC) to set up. Each year our Lodge, at Thanksgiving and Christmas, help families out with baskets/gift cards for food. The Goal would be able to help out 150 for 150
The following is the Events for the Community Day/ 150th Anniversary of Yorktown Lodge #345 on the 25th Of April 2020.
