Three tenets of our institution are Faith, Hope, and Charity. The greatest of these is Charity.

August 14, 2020
The Michael James ( Brother of our Lodge ) Family will be holding a benefit to raise funds for hospital bills incurred from their son who was very badly burned in an accident. Being in the hospital for 15 days, I’m pretty sure the bills are going to mount up. It will be a cookout at the Northfield VFW 8584 Old Route 8 from 5:00pm to 8:00pm. The cost is $13/adult and $6/child. There will be a raffle with entry ticket, there will be a Chinese Auction, along with side boards, and a 50/50 raffle. You can call Michael James at 216-323-0642 for reservations or you can e-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org.

On Sept 12 there will be a 2 mile walk that will be sponsored by cctakesteps.org of Cleveland. The walk will take place in the Towpath North of Akron. This walk is to honor the memory of one of our Brothers’ ( Mike Kish ) who recently passed away with Crohn’s Disease. If you are interested in walking you can register at www.cctakesteps.org/cleveland2020. When you register, click the search button, which will be by team name which will will be “In Honor/Memory of Mike Kish”. For those of you who are not familiar with Mike and Jill, they were to be married two days after Mike’s passing.
Taking care of Veterans
For the past 2 years Summit Lodge has sponsored, along with the Twinsburg VFW Post #4929 and the Veterans Administration, a Veterans Resource Day. First, I would like to thank Twinsburg High School for donating the Caffeteria area to be able to host this Event. We were able to sign up over 500 Veterans for their Benefits the first year and approximately 650 Veterans last year. All who were involved did a great job and met some very interesting Veterans with some great stories.
Breakfast With Santa
Every 1st Saturday of December we extend to the Community an invitation to bring the little ones and join us for Breakfast with Santa. The proceeds from the Breakfast are used to provide a worthy recipient (senior) of Twinsburg High School with a Scholarship Donation to help them start their college career. Reservations are needed and may be made by calling the contact us number listed and leave a message. This is one of our big events of the year and reservations need to be made well before Thanksgiving.
