Cuyahoga Falls to Host 25th Annual Rib Burn Off
Cuyahoga Falls Lodge 918 and Chapter 686 will host the 25th Annual Rick Gronek Memorial Scholarship Rib Burn Off on Saturday August 13, 2016. The Rib Burn Off is presented by participating District 11 Loyal Order Of Moose and Women Of The Moose.

Rick Gronek was the first Teen Club Chairman in the State of Ohio. He was also the first Teen Club Leader in our district. Rick had a vision for the future of our children, and our fraternity. The Teen Club would offer another level of family involvement to our fraternity, while encouraging recruitment of future members to our lodges and chapters. Rick was responsible for starting several teen clubs in our district, and in the state of Ohio.

After the untimely passing of Rick Gronek in 1991, it was decided, by who would eventually make up the members of the scholarship committee, that there was a need to keep the spirit of Rick’s vision for our children in the forefront of our members minds. Thus, the Rick Gronek Memorial Scholarship Fund was established. Rick’s Brother, John Gronek, and several other close friends of Rick would spearhead the idea of a cookout… a rib burn off… where members could get together annually to promote our fraternity, while raising money to fortify the scholarship fund. The monies raised would then be awarded to college bound children of good standing Moose members. Since its inception, the Rib Burn Off would take place at the Cuyahoga Falls Moose. As time went on, more lodges and chapters would become involved. Today, the Rib Burn Off is hosted by several lodges with a rotation that finds the event back at Cuyahoga Falls every three years. The dollar amount of scholarships awarded is determined by the amount of money raised throughout the year by participating lodges and chapters, and events such as the Annual Rib Burn Off held typically on the first Saturday in August. This event takes place because of volunteerism!!!

A Bake Auction is held at the Rib Burn Off to help raise funds for future scholarships. We encourage you to bring baked goods, other new, or like new items for this fun event. DONATIONS ARE GRACIOUSLY ACCEPTED.

Participating lodges in our district compete each year with their own ribs and sauces. The top three recipes receive a coveted "Pig Trophy" to recognize their accomplishments.

Thank you for supporting the Rick Gronek Memorial Scholarship Fund by attending the Annual Rib Burn Off. We welcome you, your family, and friends to attend this fun event each year.
