Summer is here!! So many things going on and happening, graduations, weddings, baptisms, barbecues, vacations, family get togethers and the list goes on and on. There are many things happening at the Lodge too. Members have been working hard to schedule events not only to raise money but to get together to meet new people and make new friends.
The newsletter committee has done an amazing job getting information out to members and the public. This is an excellent source of information. Do you have an idea? Is there someway you can help better the Lodge? Come to a meeting. It’s about an hour the second and fourth Mondays of the month and only 1 meeting in July and August. This is where your voice can be heard and your ideas turned into a reality. We want to you to be a part of the ins and outs of the Lodge. We know how busy life is, but could you please join us for the betterment of the Lodge and the community we serve? And by the way, we have refreshments afterwards.
Your membership here is a relationship of friends and family. What you put into that relationship is what you get out of it. If we stop putting effort in, we stop getting results. How long would a relationship last if we stopped putting effort in, spending time together, learning about each other?
The Lodge has some major issues that need to be worked on, the septic system is being worked on as I write this message, but the cost is almost $8,000. We need to raise the money to pay our bills to keep supporting our community, with such things as scholarships, the Dare program, Veterans etc.
We are a not for profit business, meaning after we pay our bills we donate to the community to promote our virtues of Charity, Justice, Brotherly Love, and Fidelity. We need your ideas, your support, and your friendship, this Lodge is only as good as the members make it. Ask yourself what you’re getting out of the Lodge, but before you ponder too hard, ask yourself what you're putting in?
Fair Parking, our major project and bill payer of the year, is fast approaching. Sign up sheets should be up, please stop in or call after 4pm (518-758-2530) and sign up for a shift or two. If everyone does a little it will mean a lot.
