Business of the Week

Each week, Copperhead Lodge selects a local business as “Business of the Week” and provides them with a full catered lunch. Typically, we choose businesses based on a nomination submitted by our customer. The last few weeks we’ve been honoring our dedicated men and women in the city and county government offices.
