Football, music, food, and good company were the ingredients of a fun day in Lynch, NE. In October, members of Lipany No. 56 hosted their second annual Octoberfest event. They invited all District 5 members, friends, and family via mailed invitations and word-of-mouth. Approximately 30 people turned out for the occasion.

The idea for Octoberfest came from a desire to try something new that could be enjoyed with neighboring lodges. No. 56 members arranged to have the event in a local building, and provided all of the supplies. A grill was brought in to cook the brats, and various members brought side dishes and drinks to share. The lodge purchased beer for the guests. It is a straight-forward, low maintenance event that allows everyone to have a great time.

Guests enjoyed watching the Nebraska Husker football game, and then danced to music provided. Many guests visited with each other, and some new, young people decided to join in when they heard about the event.

Lipany No. 56 is likely to have the event again in the fall because it was such a success and so enjoyable. District 5 can expect to hear more about it as the date is settled.
