October was a busy month. You can all be proud of this Lodge for which we are all a part of.
The District Deputy pre-visit went exceptionally well. We were told we could serve as a model Lodge. The House Committee, BOD's, Safety Inspection, Treasurer, Secretary and Audit Committee reports were outstanding. THANK YOU ALL! There's always a few little "tweaks" we have to do, but was told the one thing to be proud of is, we make corrections and move on. Our problems are never on going.
Thank you Kenny Andrews , Jeff Bisnaw and Wally Glendye for doing some necessary work for us and volunteering your time. Marybeth, the meal was super... I was still hearing about it the next day in Hudson at the State Soccer Shoot..Tina & Desiree did a great job bartending and multitasking, Nicole and Marybeth served well, and Kelly R did the dishes. Jack P, Rick K, Larry D & Carol G stepped up & volunteered their services as well, prepping and plating. Judi M, Janet, Patty G, Diane P & Paul H ....thank you for your donations toward the raffle baskets and for working the tables.
I would like to Thank and Congratulate the Officers for an outstanding job on the ritual! I froze a couple of times, but redeemed myself, whew! Thank you PDD Bill M for filling in the chair position & your wife Judi for the dessert bars. Also, thanks Mike Mott, Chairman of the day. With a team like that and all of you members doing all that you do, how can I not well up with pride!
Let's remember our Veteran's and all of our active soldier's this month. Show your support by going to the Bourne Cemetery for the services, volunteering at our Veteran's luncheon this month and participating in the 50/50 and meat raffle, for which proceeds will go to the Veterans.
Finally, I will be doing some Holiday Food Baskets for those in need. If you know of anyone that can use a helping hand, give me a shout. Wishing all of you and your families a Blessed and Happy Thanksgiving.
We are looking for someone to take over as Lodge Secretary. It is a paid position and a great job for someone who has organizational and financial skills. It's also a great job for someone who is retired or for somebody who needs supplemental income. It requires a great deal of time and input for the Lodge and can be very rewarding.
See Lodge bulletin for details.
