Masonic Picnic Saturday evening

Published 9:09 am Thursday, August 11, 2016

The 139th annual Masonic Picnic will be Saturday, Aug. 13 at 6 p.m. at the Masonic Picnic grounds in Mocksville.

The picnic, traditionally held on the second Thursday in August, was changed to Saturday evening this year in hopes more people would be able to attend.

The picnic benefits the Masonic Home for Children in Oxford and the Masonic and Eastern Star Home in Greensboro.

George and Brooke Martin will be honored for their contributions to the county over the years.

There will be musical entertainment, a bounce house for children, and a buffet of food. Those who provide a basket of food to share will not be charged for a plate.

The event will be held rain or shine.
