Hope Lodge Cancer Residents Cook-Out Hope Lodge is a short term residential facility adjacent to St. Joseph Hospital and Clinic. It offers a place to stay for patients and their families that are receiving outpatient oncology treatment at the hospital. The American Cancer Society Hope Lodge known as the "home of hope," is one of those places designated to help.
Hope Lodge has a large kitchen facility and dining area and some of the men of the A-MEN group are shown here preparing the hamburger, brats and picnic meal for the residents.
Comments on a thank you card sent by the staff and residents of Hope Lodge, who were served the meal, reflected some of the following thoughts:
“Thank you for a most enjoyable evening.” “I will always remember your caring, and taking time to make our lives happier.” “Thank you for taking time to fellowship with us. You have touched many lives. God bless you all.” “The work you fellows are involved in is certainly needed.”
We have been invited back and will plan another servant event at Hope Lodge for early next year.
The A-Men group is made up of men from the Amherst, Stevens Point and Kellner area.
