Ordinarily at this time of the year you would be hearing from us to invite you to participate in our annual golf outing.  This year, however, our lodge has been hit hard with an unfortunate circumstance that is requiring us to change our focus and direction away from our golf outing and towards a cause closer to our hearts.

Our past lodge president, Mitch Growe, was diagnosed in March of this year with a rare form of Leukemia known as Hairy Cell.  Since starting chemotherapy, Mitch has battled through several medical setbacks and has been unable to work.  Mitch has been an officer with the department for 22 years and has three teenage children.

The members of the lodge have chosen not to pursue a golf outing this year and instead apply the efforts of the F.O.P. towards a benefit for Mitch. 

We have teamed up with the Chicago Blues Brothers Chapter of The Renegade Pigs to host a pig roast for Mitch and are asking that you please attend his benefit in lieu of golfing this year. 

The benefit:
