RIDGWAY--The Ridgway Moose Lodge held a weekend of events to support the Ridgway Volunteer Fire Department.
Due to the COVID-19 crisis last summer, all fundraising was canceled for the Firemen, including the biggest event of them all, the annual Ridgway Volunteer Fire Department Carnival. Despite the hurdles, both the Ridgway Moose Club and the Ridgway Elks Club held special events, socially distanced, drive-thru, etc., to help fill that huge void left in the Fire Department funding.
While events are now back on track for most of the area, there is still a significant deficit in the Fire Department's budget because, unlike everything else last year, the Fire Department never was able to stop working like most everything else. The Moose Club decided that one of their first big events of the Summer would once again be dedicated to the Firemen.
On Friday Night, a Cornhole tournament and gathering was held that was family-friendly at the Lodge on North Broad Street. On Saturday, a Jeep/Dice run took participants all over Elk County, with stops for dice throws along the way. And on Sunday, the famous Chicken BBQs began again. As always, beverages, food, 50/50, and basket drawings took place at the Lodge all to support the Ridgway Fireman. The Moose Club thanks everyone who came out to support them this weekend in what looks to become a yearly tradition
