Gate City Lodge No. 2 Culture Series - Blues Event

Gate City had a wonderful turn out for Dr. Larry Dixon - The Blues Doctor - Filling Your Prescription for the blues.

Dinner was an exquisite brisket prepared and slow-cooked on a Big Green Egg.  The brisket was prepared by our own Bro. Jason Graham and the rest of the dinner was prepared by our Stewards.

Dr. Dixon was a very hard person to reserve and he showed why that was so.  He gave an inspiring performance that kept the crowd moving.  Gate City would love to have you for our next event.
