The second annual Dodge Township Gathering is planned for June 28 and 29 in conjunction with the East Union All School Reunion and Afton’s Pre-Fourth of July Celebration. It will be held in the Afton Community Center on the west side of the square. It will be a come-and-go event. Free will donations will be appreciated to cover expenses. Marvin Kingery and Edwin Ritter are co-chairpersons.
“Show and Tell” material available for reminiscing and discussion will include information on the Beeson Barker Marker, Emmanuel Baptist Church, Dodge Center United Methodist Church, the country schools of Dodge Township, cemeteries in Dodge Township and Pauline Parrott’s history books of Dodge Township.
The planning committee is encouraging attendees to bring any pictures, mementos and collectibles. Suggestions would include pictures of country school groups; St. Edward’s Catholic Church confirmation groups that include Dodge Township residents; 4-H clubs groups and their activities; social and church groups; and any other historical material for Dodge Township.
