EVENTS: Masons to hold annual pig roast August 19, 2023

The Ancient Free and Accepted Masons invites the public to their second annual Pig Roast. Last year’s event was met with such enthusiasm they decided to repeat it again this year. Rural Lodge #53, of Sidney, was established in 1827 and has always maintained a strong community presence.

For those of you who are not familiar, they are a Service to Mankind Organization located at 3001 Middle Road, Sidney. They do such projects as Bikes for Books where they give away as many as 18 bikes per year. They also raise funds for Project Graduation for a local high school. They are also very active in a food drive for the Sidney Food Pantry. They also do what is called the Handy Brigade which gives assistance to the elderly and veterans in need. They try to be a beacon of charity and good will in the community.

So they invite one and all on Saturday, August 19, from 2 – 6 p.m., to enjoy a wonderful time and meal with them and perhaps some of your friends. The fare is all homemade and delicious. The course includes rotisserie pig, char-smoked turkey, potato, garden and macaroni salads and various drinks, cake.

The fee for this humanitarian fare is $12 for adults and $6 for children. So bring a smile and an empty stomach and enjoy the experience. This cause is great as mentioned above, and you will leave with a full belly and a full heart. If you are on the run they can do TO-GO plates for your convenience. Thank you to sponsors Fanado Pelotte Construction, O’Connor Auto Park, Cony Hannaford.
