June 30th – Annual Independence Day Picnic!
O.K., so maybe it isn’t on July 4th…we love to spend that holiday with our family. Instead, we always plan our annual picnic the weekend before the exciting, much celebrated birthday of our great country. This year, we’re going to kick off our festivities at 11 a.m. under shelter #1 at the Broad Ripple Park. If you and your family are looking for something to do, this is the thing to do. So head on down to Broad Ripple Park on June 30th for some great summer fun. Side dishes are welcome.
You didn’t think that Broad Ripple Lodge is All about fellowship, did you? One of our other favorite things to do is charity work and Brothers, you could say that this is “vital” charity work. During our July 4th picnic on June 30th, the Indiana Blood Center will have their Bloodmobile all set up and ready to go for you to donate blood. Below is some information from the Indiana Blood Center about donating.
