Our stated meeting dinner was the annual crab feed. We had thirty two members and visitors in attendance who devoured forty crab. The crab was fresh and delicious. Thanks to the ladies of Rohnerville-Redwood OES who served the meal.
The dinner was followed by a presentation by the Fortuna Youth Wrestling Team. They described the mission of their organization and explained their need for wrestling mats. They have been doing events to raise money toward the project but are approximately $6000 short of their goal. It was voted upon in our stated meeting that the Lodge would donate $6000 toward the purchase of the mats.
Happy Valentines Day to wives and other loved ones.
Phil Grunert, WM
