Davis Lodge #163 presented a check for $1,401 (a nice odd number) to benefit the RISE Winters High School Mentoring Program. Here, Juelie Roggli, a member of the Lodge’s Music & Concerts Committee presents the check to some of the Winters High School students during a meeting at the Lodge Hall. The funds were raised during a recent concert organized by the Music & Concerts Committee, honoring the life and music of Pete Seeger, held at the Lodge Hall, and attended by over 200 members of the public.
