Joe Sommers, ER opened the Lodge with a Memorial Service for several Members that passed last year.
In Vain we call. They have passed into the light which is beyond the Valley of the Shadow of death. The places that have known them shall know them no more, but their Virtues are written upon the tablets of love and memory.

Regular meeting opened at 7:30pm with ER Sommers
Discussion on Re-opening the lodge was voted on and passed.
It’s official we will re-open April 6th from 4pm—8pm.

Our goal is to have a Club that the Members will want to visit and relax and enjoy.
Shoot pool, play Shuffleboard, throw darts, play trivia, watch TV, have fun.
With so much turmoil in our lives we need to leave the negative at the door.

Now for our Lodge, we want to have events and be able to donate to our Community again as well as Cancer Research, National Foundation, Scholarships, and of course our Veterans...
So therefore we are in the process of restocking the kitchen and bar. Pest control is coming and the Security company and on and on. Please be patient with our Volunteers. :).

We are still in a Pandemic (Covid), our health officer Nancy says we still have to wear mask when moving around and social Distance. We ask that you please help us protect each other. Wash your hands, wash your Hands. We will have sanitizer available in all areas of the lodge. Please if you are sick stay home.

I am still looking for the following:
Hoop Shoot Chairperson
Scholarship Chairperson
Leading Knight
If you are interested please contact me, we would like your input and ideas.
Next Lodge meeting is April 1st at 7:30pm

Together we can do this!

Have a Wonderful,  Safe Easter
