Use of Proceeds

Scholarships.  After prom parties. Little League baseball and softball.  Veterans' Programs. Youth Camps.  Special Olympics programs.   These are just a few of the programs that my Lodge will have to curtail or at the very least cut back on if the proposed regulations go into effect.  It makes no sense to take money from fraternal organizations that is used to make our communities better.  It appears that the General Assembly wants to fatten the pockets of the corporations that are building casinos all over the state and the state lottery.  Please do not hurt the citizens of the Commonwealth that need our help.
