Beaver Lodge 82 Ruthven
Receiving its charter January 12, 1872 we meet every Tuesday except July & August. We now meet at the Unico Community Centre in Kingsville. In September 1979 we started the Apple Festival. Serving breakfast, selling produce and the parade. In 1989 we moved the festival to Colasanti’s Tropical Gardens as we needed more room as the event had become very successful. The lodge members continue to put on the Saturday morning breakfast during the Ruthven Apple Festival along with other volunteers to raise money for Essex Community Living.
