Locals are teaming up to help community
The Masonic Lodges of Rockmart and Aragon are teaming up once again in an effort to raise money for the community and have some fun with their annual golf tournament coming up soon.
Those who want to get teams together early can start getting their registration fees in for the tournament being held at Cherokee Country Club on June 12.
Masons are raising money at the 16th annual event to help several efforts during the year, including help for children, the elderly, widows and families with special needs. Among the events the fundraiser will benefit is the Aragon Children’s Day around the mill pond, and to provide Christmas dinner and gifts to local widows
