AUBURN, Mass. – The Auburn/Webster Lodge of Elks wants residents to know about its free fitness program and a special veterans event coming up soon.

“Wellness Works” Exercise Program

The Auburn/Webster Lodge of Elks, at 754 Southbridge St., will host the second night in the health series “Wellness Works” on Nov. 27, at 6:30 p.m.

The evening will focus on exercise by dancing to the Wii game “Just Dance.” This free event is open to the public, and all ages are welcome to participate.  

All participants will receive a free insulated lunch bag and snack. For more information, contact elkswellnessworks@gmail.com.

Wreaths Across America Stopover/Dinner

The Wreaths Across America convoy will honor the town of Auburn with a return appearance and stopover on Dec. 10. It was originally scheduled for Dec. 9.

This group of veterans and Gold Star Mothers, friends and supporters honored the town of Auburn last year with a stopover on their way to Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia.

The group decorates every grave in Arlington, with the support of many volunteers, in just one day. All wreaths are donated by the Worcester Wreath Company in Maine.

The convoy travels through many towns and has decided to return to Auburn. This is a first for them, according to Corbin.

“They usually travel a different route each year, stopping at towns along the way that they have not been to,” Corbin said. “The people in Auburn gave them such a warm welcome and thank you that they decided to return to us again this year.”

The event will kick off at about 6 p.m. at the Auburn/Webster Lodge of Elks. Tickets are available at the lodge, and the event is open to the public. Tickets are $5 for a ziti and meatballs feast.
