I hope this message finds you and your families doing well.
This is my second to last message. It’s hard to believe that a week from next Saturday is our Annual Meeting. I look forward to seeing as many Brothers as possible at the meeting.
I’d like to wish all of you and your families a very Happy Thanksgiving. Please take a moment and reflect on all that you are truly thankful for. I don’t mean that new item you just acquired – I would ask that you tell those special to you how thankful you are that they are in your life and give them a hug.
This past Thursday several Brothers attended our deep fry night. We all had an enjoyable time deep-frying Oreos, strawberry shortcakes, and Twinkies along with other sweets. RW Mike treated everyone to some deep fried pickles and dipping sauces – all very good indeed.
Today I enjoyed the company of Brothers Ted, Chris, Buddy, and Dave killing some paper targets. There’s just something about the smell of gunpowder in the crisp fall air that gets you going. Thank you Buddy for letting us shoot at your place.
The Lodge is collecting non-perishable foodstuffs for the Eastford Food Pantry. We will be collecting these items (canned goods, pasta, toiletries) up through the Annual Meeting. Please bring something down; anything, however small, will go along way to helping those who need it – thanks.
November 30 is our Annual Audit beginning at noon with our Annual Meeting rehearsal to follow at 1400. All Brothers are welcome, however advancing line officers are required to attend.
There are still a few Brothers who haven’t paid their dues yet. Please save me the trouble of making personal contact with you to ask for your dues payment. Additionally, don’t run the risk of being dropped for NPD. Stop what you’re doing and take the two minutes to write the check or use the PayPal link below - thank you.
