On Aug. 18, the Moose Lodge will team up with the local sheriff and fire departments to offer a fun day for youth. The Sheriff's Department will offer fingerprint identification with children and the fire department will bring things to show and interest children. Last year they brought a fire truck and a firedog to show off to the children.
The event begins at 1 p.m., and will last for a few hours. It will take place at the Moose Lodge, 225 S. Depot Rd., Brazil.
The Moose Lodge is also sponsoring a few events during the upcoming school year.
In September or October, they will sponsor lessons on fire prevention. Teaming up with the fire department, they plan on going to schools to teach children about what to do in case of a fire.
They also hope to implement a program called Safe Surf to teach children about the dangers of online sexual predators and how to avoid them.
On Aug. 25, the Moose Lodge will sponsor a bicycle ride for the Humane Shelter of Clay County, with prizes and other activities to sponsor the Human Shelter.
Members of the Moose Lodge will also be present at the National Night Out at Forest Park Aug. 7. They'll be there helping out with children's activities and making sure the children are safe and having a good time.
All of these events are free and open to the public.
The Moose Lodge is also currently sponsoring a school supplies donation drive. Anyone wishing to donate school supplies can drop them off at the Moose Lodge location on Depot Rd.
The Moose Lodge of Brazil exists to "serve the community and to serve children in Brazil," Moose Lodge Governor Mike Rambo said.
"We really just want to protect children and offer them events to have fun at and learn from," Rambo said.
