Labor Day has come and gone and I hope everyone enjoyed the break from their labors while they wore themselves out making sure they did.
Seems like this is kind of a “Ho Hum” time of year for the Lodge as folks are taking vacations, hunting, fishing or just plain relaxing. However, there are some who are working diligently learining their work for next year.
By the way, mark this date on your calendar; December 3, 2011 will be Eel River Empire 147 Installation of Officers. The time hasn’t been confirmed yet. It will be a closed installation.
Our attendance has dropped off these last few months. I encourage all of the brethren to come out and attend our dinners and meetings. Please bring your wives or significant other with you so they can enjoy a night out away from the kitchen and socialize with the other wives while we are attending the meeting. We are open to suggestions from everyone as to what the wives would like for entertainment while are in the meeting. There is a lot of talent in our area and many are willing to present programs. We would like to generate a family atmosphere for everyone to enjoy.
Here is another date to remember; October 1, 2011. We will be putting on the “Kids ID Program” again this year in the Strongs Creek Shopping Center in Fortuna. The time will be 10 AM to 2 PM. If you know anyone with small children, please encourage them to take advantage of this program. Please assure them that we do not retain any of the information or pictures that are taken. It is for their personal use only.
Fun night at the Lodge, September 21, 2011. Come and swim with the card sharks. Stated Meeting, October 8, 2011. Dinner at 7:00 PM and the meeting starts at 8:00 PM.
