The Lodge has been generous when natural disasters strike by supporting recovery
efforts for Hurricane Katrina and the devastating tsunami which struck Indonesia.
We currently raises funds by selling the Entertainment Book and the Our Town and Around Book.
Proceeds from these sales benefit the charity we support for the year. All our efforts are voluntary and unpaid.
In the past 20 years, Owatonna has raised and given away over $150,000.00, a large sum for such a small Lodge.
