As we enter the month of June, the Lodge has accomplished several milestones for the month of May. For all this I want to thank all the Brothers for their support & dedication to the Lodge and the Craft.
We celebrated Cinco de Mayo in traditional fashion with a dinner of Crafted South of the Border foods which was well attended by Brothers, Guests and several prospective men of our Community. Brother Andrew Bowen and Diane Hall chaired the effort in which they made the festive gathering memorable. Everyone’s appetite was completely “fulfilled.”
For those of you who were not aware why the dinner was served late, Diane had spent the weekend prior to the Lodge night, preparing all the food and it was delivered to the Lodge on Monday, late into the evening. On Wednesday, at 3:00 p.m. she was notified that the refrigerators had gone out at the Lodge on Tuesday and all food that was prepared was discarded. Food had to be prepared from scratch commencing at 3:00 p.m. on Wednesday, the night of the Lodge meeting. Apologies for dinner not being served timely, due to unfortunate circumstances. Thanks to Kim Read for preparing the rice at the last minute!
After the dinner, the stated meeting was convened and was well attended. Several petitions were read and accepted. All business matters were covered and the Lodge was closed for the evening after all business matters were acted on.
Mr. Johnny K. Nix and Mr. Erick J. Franco received their 1st Degrees and we all welcome each, as newly initiated Brothers into our Lodge. This is an exciting experience for each of the new Brothers and the members of the Lodge. Brethren reach out to welcome each of them to the Lodge and to this Great Fraternity. We look forward to your involvement and participation. Your journey will be one that each of you will find memorable and very thought provoking. Welcome!!
