Shop with a Cop

Century Lodge brothers have become proud Gold Sponsors of the Shop with a Cop Program in our area.  Our part is to purchase, donate and prepare the breakfast.  Last year we served over 400.  This program allows qualifying families to have their children participate in this whole day function scheduled for December 19, 2009.  The day starts out with a buffet breakfast, to shopping with a local police officer and the day ends with the family receiving food for a dinner for 6.  Volunteers from Century Lodge #492, Elgin Lodge #12, Ben Hur Lodge #870 and Young Centurion Junior Lodge #1 will prepare and serve the breakfast buffet. Century Lodge #492 has been supporting our community for 108 years. For more info go to:
