Emblem Club No. 444 - September, 2015 Message

The Emblem Club meets the first Saturday of the Month at 11:00 AM

How is everyone liking these sweltering days? July was rough and I am hoping September cools down. It is hard to go out and do errands in the heat.

The Emblem Club stays busy even in the summer when we are dark. In addition to the 4th of July Parade and game booths the club participated in, just after putting on a successful Mystery Play, the club managed to have another fundraiser on July 30th.

This is when we get as many people to attend dinner at the Original Roadhouse Grill and turn in a coupon from the Grill.

The restaurant tallies up all meat tickets from the club for a certain day of attendance and gives us a check for 20% of the total. Boy the steaks were really good, melt in the mouth good.

Members held a "silent auction" and potluck in July to raise money for President Linda Bridge to attend the National Emblem Convention to be held in September. She and her husband Irvin will be traveling to San Antonio, Texas to attend.

Our next meeting will be September 5th at 11:00 am at the Elks Lodge.

Also in September, the club will be doing a Drug Awareness project by having a bean bag toss booth at the Central Point Park for Foundations for Recovery. This will be the 2nd year the club has participated.

Linda Bridge, President
