Tickets are $40 per person — reduced from last year’s $50 per person, and are available to the general public in limited supply.
“The Odd Fellows Lodge is proud to be the venue, again, for this very popular community gathering,” said co-chair Dody Black. “We’re going to make this the social event of the season.
