The Masons’ Kevin Hack says Saturday’s event from 4-7 pm is one of the local fundraisers the groups do together. Your entry fee sets you up for a chance to win several fun prizes. Sy West explains the coop effort by the Elks and Masons is a plus for the community needs. "We have a tight-knit, small community so many of the same people turnout for events like this.
