Picnic in the Park

bike winnerThe Youth Picnic has a new name this year – Picnic in the Park.  While the name has changed, much of the picnic itself will be similar to years past including free admission, food, games, and activities the whole family can enjoy!  The Picnic in the Park is aimed at getting younger members together to have a good time while increasing awareness of WFLA.  bounce house 2Lodges in attendance last year were Lodges 7, 13, 160, 262, 400, 423, 427, and 500.  Many non-members also attended.

This year will be just as exciting with a bounce house, velcro wall, snow cones, food, 1 bike giveaway, and games!  Last year there were 80 people in attendance – this year we’d love to double that number!  You don’t have to be a member of WFLA to come join in the fun so bring your friends, family, and neighbors and stop by Guthridge Park in Hiawatha on June 8 from 1 – 4 pm for a free, family-friendly afternoon!

Lodges were formed throughout the Midwest and members attended meetings and special events. Today the membership is open to those who are supportive of the purpose of the Association.
