So you're thinking..... what kinds of events does the Geneva Lodge have??  Well here you have them.... 
**BOCCE** is a big event at Geneva Lodge 2397.  This traditional Italian game is played on our indoor court from September to April every Tuesday evening. The league consists of 9 teams, each team with four players. It is  good competitive play and a great way for members to socialize. All players share in the year end prize money and get two free dinners during the season.
During the spring and summer members and guests can also use the outdoor bocce courts adjacent to the pavilion. The lodge runs a nice friendly Summer League where all members and guests can compete.
Come on down and check us out!
**BINGO** is the major fundraiser for the lodge. Weekly bingo draws many members of the community out to the lodge every Sunday night at 7:00pm to socialize and play for big cash prizes!!  Members volunteer as bingo callers, floor workers, and concession workers. Bingo and Bell Jar income helps to support local, state, and national charities.  Both the workers and the players have alot of fun and at the same time are helping to fund many worthy causes.
