Family Fun: Community Match Benefits

Family Fun: Community Match Benefits Pool and Park

Oct 05, 2018

Community Matching Funds from Western Fraternal Life provides up to $500 to lodges who participate in a fundraiser for a worthy cause in their community. Lodges get involved in an active fundraiser, and the money they raise is matched by Western. Recently, two lodges used Community Matching Funds to benefit a swimming pool and playground.

Lynch, NE Swimming Pool

The Village of Lynch Swimming Pool was in need of a new liner, chemical system, and filtration system. Members of No. 56, Lynch, NE organized a community meal at the park during the Junefest celebration on June 17. Members grilled hamburgers and hotdogs. Other activities included bagging and selling popcorn, helping children sign-up for a free bike giveaway, working a sandpile, and cleaning up. This event helped raise over $3,000 dollars. An additional $500 was donated to the swimming pool by Western's Home Office through the Community Matching Funds Program.

The community raised $6,000 total for the playground, and an additional $500 was given by Western's Home Office through the Community Matching Funds Program.
