Masonic Picnic raises $1,700 for children’s home

Davie County’s annual Masonic Picnic is going through some changes, and organizers said after Saturday’s event they hope it is headed in the right direction.

Some $1,700 was raised for the Masonic Home for Children at Oxford.

“It was by far the biggest picnic in eight years,” said James Taylor, Master of the Farmington lodge. “We have found some areas to improve, but for the first year, it was definitely a success.”

The 2021 event included a food truck competition won by Wicked Awesome Foods, and a cornhole tournament won by Tim Potts and Damon Landreth.
