RECENT FUN AND SPECIAL EVENTS


2nd ANNUAL OLIVE BRANCH LODGE PICNIC AND HORSESHOE CONTEST WAS A COMPLETE SUCCESS

If you did not attend our annual picnic and horseshoe competition on Saturday July 19 you missed out on good food, fellowship, a bounce house for the kids, and of course throwing “U” shaped iron.  But don’t worry; we will be back again next July so start practicing your throwing style

Olive Branch Lodge Community Outreach for Emergency Aid in Tulare

Olive Branch Lodge to date has provided boxes at five elementary school to support our local Emergency Aid (https://www.facebook.com/tulareemergencyaidcouncil) and their need for food this time of the season.  To date our representative Robert Sutton has picked up food boxes from three schools.  One of them, Kohn School on Friday had 35 boxes of food for Emergency Aid.  Both the school and Emergency Aid are so appreciative of what the Masons are doing for them this time of year!
