On Saturday, May 21st more than 20 families of Oswego County Head Start Pre-K gathered at the Fulton Moose Lodge for an afternoon of games, crafts, food, and fun. Those who attended made bird feeders, painted rocks, tried hula-hooping, played on the playground, and enjoyed a great menu of food.
The day was made possible by the Fulton Moose Lodge. Through the organization’s belief in giving back to the community the Governor of the Fulton Moose Lodge, Sean Broadwell, collaborated with the Pinewoods Center of Oswego County Head Start Pre-K, generously donating his time, the lodge & food, so that the Pinewood’s families could enjoy a Spring Family Fun Day.
The Moose Lodge has been in existence since 1888, as “a fraternal and service organization, dedicated to bettering the lives of children and elderly in need.” Those who would like more information about the Fulton Moose Lodge or membership may contact Sean at 598-8353.
