OSWEGO, NY – On May 8, Lake City 127 Free and Accepted Masons held a community and Masonic awards luncheon to honor community programs that serve youth, and cited long-time masons.
A chicken and biscuits luncheon was served by the Lake City Victoria Eastern Star no. 205.
Community youth organizations were the St. Paul’s Leprechaun Youth Basketball League.
