I hope this message finds you and your families doing well.
Congratulations to our Brother Dave Mullen and his wife Kerri on a beautiful wedding yesterday. I wish you both much happiness and success in the future. Thank you letting Malin and I share in your wonderful day.
This has been another very busy week. Monday found Gunnar and I beginning to prep for our new propane tank. Mike G., Erik and I completed that work Wednesday evening. The new tank is scheduled to be delivered and hooked up this coming Thursday.
During Thursday’s fellowship the Table Lodge menu was finalized. The main course will be smoked turkey breast. Thanks to RW Mike and RW John on putting together an excellent menu. The Halloween Table Lodge will be held on October 18 at 1800. This year the proceeds from this event will be donated to the Silas Bunnell Educational Fund. Cost is $35 and I hope that you all will join us for what expects to be a sell out. Tickets are printed and ready to go. Please contact me, John Rhoads or Mike Dodge if you’d like to attend.
Friday several Brothers travelled to Corner Stone-Quinebaug #122 for their Stated Communication and Inspection. Congratulations to our very own PM and current SD Chris Mayhew and SS Mike Gibeault on doing a fantastic Middle Chamber Lecture. This was Mike G’s first lecture beyond the Stewards Lecture and he performed admirably as did our veteran Chris. Congratulations to WM Rick and his degree team on an outstanding job.
This week I also heard from PM Larry Hilton. He emailed me to inform the Lodge of his Brother’s (PM Jim Hilton) medical situation. He’ love to have Lodge Brothers call or write him to lift his spirits. His address is 39 East Franklin Street, Danielson, CT. 06239 and his phone number is 860-774-3760.
The next Stated Communication is on 4 October. We will be having a FC Degree with our two newest EA’s advancing and our SW Peter Rinaudo in the East. The two preceding Thursdays will be rehearsals for the Officers. The dates are 25 September and 2 October. We will begin promptly at 1930.
The Lodge Glow Ball Tourney is just 2 weeks away. We have 1 foursome left available and I’d love to sell this event out.

Tee off will be at 2000. Contact me directly to make the reservation.
