Members and local dignitaries are breaking ground Friday on an addition to Moos Lodge 867 on U.S. 40 West.

The addition will house a new kitchen, dining room and offices.

"Our kitchen is over 40 years old and it is on borrowed time so it is time to upgrade and make all the inspectors happy," says John Fornataro a Junior Governor of Moose Lodge 867.

The lodge has fundraised for 7 1/2 years.  It held bake sales, poker runs and pool leagues and raised $100,000.  The Moose Lodge has around 860 members comprised of both men and women.  Fornataro says the lodge will use local businesses during construction.
