TWO HARBORS - A private party took out a $45,000 loan, which stopped the Moose Lodge in Two Harbors from being sold at an IRS auction that was scheduled to take place at 10:00 on Thursday morning, according to Sue Bott, a member of the Moose.

The club needed to raise $42,000 to pay off an IRS loan before Thursday. Bott says because of the Good Samaritan stepping up to pay the $45,000, they are now again open for business.

Bott called it, "A true gesture of love for the lodge and what it means for the community."

The Moose Lodge does still need to pay back the person that took out the loan. They are hoping to have that done by January 1. If you'd like to donate you can do so at:
