I had promised to provide pictures from the Annual Masonic Pheasant Hunt, however, I didn’t receive any. The reports that I received were that there were nine persons who participated and that the weather was very bad. Perhaps that had something to do with it.
In the above picture, our Treasurer, Phil Grunert (Left) is presenting Ron Brown, President of the Eel River Valley Babe Ruth League with a check for $5000 to purchase new uniforms (Shirt and Pants) for the five Babe Ruth teams. Four in the Eel Valley and one in Southern Humboldt area. The shirt they are holding is a sample of the new uniforms. We wish our teams great success in the coming season.
It is with sadness that we are saying farewell to two of our most dedicated members in Lodge and Eastern Star. Jerry and Sylvia Colanter will be moving to Alabama shortly. There was a Goodby Potluck held on Saturday, April 16th at noon in the Eel River Empire Lodge to give them a good sendoff. God speed and best of everything Sylvia and Jerry.
At our April stated meeting, Bro. Frank Cope was presented his Golden Veterans Award signifying more than fifty years of continuous membership in the fraternity. In the picture above are shown L to R, Worshipful Master Harry Pond, Bro. Frank Cope, Wanda Cope and Worshipful Gary Quintrell, Inspector of the 105th Masonic District.
