Just Between Us Deers
Our monthly meeting was opened by me, Marsha Reede-Meistrell. The opening prayer was given by Pat Howard and the Pledge of Allegiance was led by Joan Grimsley.
Sadly, the Deers Father’s Day luncheon did not have as good a turnout as expected. Even still it was nice to see Fathers sharing a meal with their families. Fortunately, we were able to get rid of most of the food. The meatballs and spaghetti was absolutely delicious. Thanks to all the Deers who contributed their time, food and energy to this event.
During our meeting us Deers discussed the kitchen remodel. Sal and Martha Quijano gave me several folders that they wanted me to give to the Deers Remodel Committee members. There was a wealth of material in the folders. Sal and Martha worked very hard on compiling this information. Thanks to both of you. Mary Simpkins pointed out that before there could be a kitchen remodel, the building roof would need to be repaired.
Diane Beggin informed us that August 8th will be Navy Day which will be hosted by the Elks. Last year’s event was a huge success and hopefully we can make this year’s even better. Since we are expecting around 200 service personnel, Diane has requested that we all bring food – casseroles, deserts, salads and snacks. They love homemade food. Look on the bulletin board for more information. Let’s show our support for these heroic service men and women! The first bus load is expected to arrive at 5 PM so please have your food, etc. delivered to the lodge by 3 PM. Diane and Jim thank you!
In addition, Mary Gesquiere is working on a fund raiser whereby the Deers will host a pool tournament the 3rd Saturday in September. Entry cost will be $25 per person but in order to play, one must have sponsors. The sponsors will make up the $25 entry fee. There will be one man and one woman on each team. Hot dogs and sandwiches will be served. The money made will be divided between the Deers and the Elks. All the details are not finalized but it sound like a lot of fun. If you have any questions you can contact Mary Gesquiere.
At last count, there are six seats available for the bus trip to the Riverside Casino in Laughlin, NV. Bus leaves on August 23rd, and returns on August 25th. If you are interested, please contact Mary Gesquiere for more information.
Sharon Cavin stated that she has sold all the brass plates needed and that the new table will be finished very soon. She has worked very hard on this project and it will be nice to see it completed. Thank you Sharon for your endeavor to get this project finished.
Our next Deers meeting is on August 5th. It will be Hawaiian themed with pizza. There is no need to sign up to bring food as the officers are providing it, however, Mystery gifts will be very much appreciated.
We are still looking for a Secretary. Please consider! Contact one of the officers if you are interested.
Marsha Meistrell-Duarte, Deers President
