After a long, cold and gray winter, there are signs that Spring is here! The birds are out and driving my dog nuts. Looking back, we had a terrific Party in December, followed by an excellent inspection and raising of Brother Bame in January. February was our first Cancer Patient Services Chili Cookoff and Brother Pina’s chili recipe was a hit. Inspection season continues through March with Mt. Cory and Dunkirk’s inspection the end of the month. A special MM degree at the Dayton Masonic Temple was put on by a lodge from Canadian Mounted Police.
Looking forward to April there are three more inspections through the middle of the month, and we will be having our awards luncheon Saturday, April 21st at noon.
Tuesday, May 15th will be the Orwin Goodman Scholarship Award/Widow’s night dinner; the District will be holding an outdoor MM degree Saturday, May 19th at Camp Berry, and Sunday May 20th will be the afternoon Memorial Service at the lodge.
WB Buckingham is organizing a 28 passenger bus trip to Toledo for a Mudhens game on Friday, June 8th against the Norfolk Tides. Tickets are $20.00 per person and are limited to the first 28 who sign up. This event is open to brothers, their family and friends. So, come and be one of the 28 to sign up and enjoy an evening of fellowship and baseball. Don’t miss the bus on this one.
We originally had a blood drive scheduled for June 1st, however, the Red Cross has called and asked us if we can reschedule due to a conflict with another Findlay blood drive, so stay tuned and we will get the word out when we have a new date.
We hope to have better attendance at our Table Lodge this year by having it on our regular lodge night of Wednesday, June 20th with dinner being served at 6:00pm. Brother Weiker, who recently returned from China after working there for two years, will be our program speaker on his family’s life in China.
So, the beginning of the year has been busy and as you can see, the lodge continues to remain active. We are having great fellowship during dinner before lodge and after, so if you have not been to lodge for a while, drop in either the first or third Wednesday for dinner at 6:30pm, renew old acquaintances and make some new ones. If you can’t make lodge night, stop in the first Saturday of every month from 7:00am to 9:00am and have some breakfast with your brothers
