HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! What a year 2020 has been. We have learned so many things about ourselves, our family, and the world we live in. We have accomplished so much in the Covid -19 world that it simply amazes me. We were forced to think outside the box, and we did. This Lodge had a drive-through Easter Bunny event, we had food drives to help the community, and we even were involved in the Columbia County Rainbow Hunt. This Lodge and its members are here for not only each other, but for the kids, the Veterans and the community as a whole. We never lost sight of that, and I am so proud to be a part of such a caring group. Thank you to all.
Marion Stegmann was a success. Thank you to the members, and all the volunteers from the community. The program has reached many new corners of the world. One woman in Texas sent us a check and informed us how she grew up around here, knew about Marion Stegmann but never knew that her legacy has been carried on for so many years. The Scarsdale Women’s Club reached out to us and donated boxes of books for the kids. We are so blessed with a caring community. KJ’s gymnastics, and Our Towne along with the whole Felts family brought us toys and food. It not only the big things, it is the little ones that matter too, all the handmade hats and mittens, people giving of their time and talents to help others. So, when the world seems so dark and dismal there are always those that continue to shine their light for others. There definitely are angels among us.
We continue to work within the CDC guidelines to bring much needed revenue into the Lodge. The philly cheesesteaks went over so well. We now have planned a ham dinner and a friend chicken night. So please if you would like tickets, buy them, or grab some and sell them. We are also planning on fish fry Friday’s for Lent. If you have an idea, please let us know.
February is nominations of officers. Please let us know if you wish to help move the Lodge forward for the 2021-2022 Lodge year. Meetings are the second and fourth Mondays of the month at 7:30. We would love to see you there.
Thank you for everything you do for the Lodge and the community we serve. Happy New Year!!! A huge thank you to Lee and Kate on their work on hide collections that brought in 192 hides. Simply AMAZING.
