Farmers and friends ring in new year with night at Lodge


They started off the new year right with a very popular Social Night at the Italo-American Lodge this past Tuesday, Jan. 2.

The evening’s theme was Farmers Night, and was sponsored by Holt Ag Solutions, Garton Tractors, and Mike Pellicano. It was a great time for the many attendees.

All proceeds generated from the night’s festivities are committed to stay local, including scholarships and donations to local nonprofits.

Notably, this is the first Social Night gathering under the new Lodge president, Paul Fragulia. He noted that it was really special to now be in charge of something that he has been attending and involved in since he was a boy. His father has also served as president of the Lodge.

“I support the Lodge because it has been important to my family for years, and it is a great community support center. It brings the community together and we get to raise money for scholarships.”
