Beefsteak & Tricky Tray Fundraiser @ St. Jude's Parish Hall
Oct 12 @ 6:00 pm – 8:30 pm

The Lake Hopatcong Historical Museum, like many community groups, uses St. Jude’s Parish Hall for programs and other events.  Unfortunately the lack of a sound system has made it difficult to hear in this large building.  On October 12th we come together as a community to raise the funds necessary to purchase a sound system so that the parish hall can serve the entire community for many years to come.
