From the Administrator….
We have a lot going on the next two months. Our Nominating Committee is meeting now to select the new officers to lead us next year. Our Election will be held at the Lodge Meeting on April 7th. There is still enough time for anyone who wishes to become involved in the business of the lodge to offer their name into consideration as a officer.
This lodge has been selected to host a visit from Supreme Governor Joseph R Koons. The date for his visit is Thursday March 13th and we will be having a New York Strip Steak dinner that evening. Tickets are on sale in the Social Quarters or the office for $10.00. I am looking forward to seeing you here that evening.
LifeLine Screening will again be here at the lodge. They will be here on the morning of April 17th. Their last visit here was very important to several persons. They detected numerous health problems that needed immediate attention and without that persons visit here at the screening, would gone on undetected with the chance of serious results.
On Sunday, April 13th, we will be having a benefit with all proceeds going to Special Olympics. Our own Gerry Ricke, who is the FBMA Special Olympics Chairman for the State, has planned a great event. We will have the October Mountain Washtub Band here performing, after a Chef Jimmy prepared meal of Stuffed Pork Loin. Cost is $15.00 each and is certainly going to a worthy cause. Hope to see you there.
Tom Hickman, Administrator
