'Tarboro Family & Friend Day Walk-A-Thon'

TARBORO — Mt. Lebanon Lodge #25 F&AM of Tarboro is sponsoring "Tarboro Family & Friend Day Walk-A-Thon, Saturday.

The event will begin at 10 a.m. with a walk from the Edgecombe County Administration Building to Main Street and end on St. Andrew Street in the Tarboro Shopping Center shopping center. After the walk ends, free refreshments will be given away and games for children will be offered.

A $5 fee will be charged for each adult participant, while children 10 and under can walk free.

"We are looking for methods of keeping young boys and girls off the street therefore we are starting a mentoring program," said Victory Tillery, worshipful master for Mount Lebanon No. 25 Masonic Lodge. "This walk will help us raise money for the cause and also bring unity in the community."

Tillery said the walk has been cleared by Town of Tarboro authorities.

The walk will take the same route that the Tarboro Christmas parade takes. Tillery said there will be no bands and he doesn't anticipate participants singing or dancing.

"It's just good old fellowship and a nice walk together to promote unity in our community," he said. "I know there is some other things that are going on around town on Saturday, but we want everybody in Tarboro to come out and join us in this good old walk."

Mount Lebanon Lodge has 99 members.

For more information about the Walk A Thon contact Victory Tillery at 567-4253.
