November is the month we thank all Veterans of the Armed Forces for their dedication and sacrifice to protect this great nation. This is also when some of you will be traveling to see loved ones for the Thanksgiving Holiday. Please travel safely.
Unfortunately, our Happy Happenings had to be postponed due to the Kiwanis Lake being to warm for the fish to survive. I know a lot of us were disappointed, but God willing, we will be able to have it next year.
I would like to welcome our new three year Trustee, Bob Scanlan. I know he will do a great job and will be a welcome addition. This means some of our Officers will be stepping up to new positions. Please give them your support.
The first weekend of November will see some of our Officers heading to Sacramento for 2014-2015 Mid-term Conference. There will be a lot of important issues that will be brought up that will affect all the Lodges throughout California and Hawaii.
We have the DDGER Homecoming and Visitation this month and I need all Committee chairmen to have their reports ready for DDGER Bob Schrum to inspect:
General review: Nov. 14, 10 a.m. and Lodge Audit: Nov. 19, 01 p.m. Both dates ER, Leading Knight, Secretary and Board of Trustees Chairman are required to attend.
Committee Chairmen date To Be Determined.
Homecoming dinner will be Saturday, November 22.
I want to thank all of our volunteers who give of their time to keep this Lodge going. You do not get enough credit but your efforts have not gone unnoticed by all. Again, thank you so much.
Our Club Manager has a lot of great ideas for the Lodge members. I urge you to check not only the calendar, but check the bulletin board by the kitchen. Sometimes things do not always get to Jerry in time to put in the bulletin or something comes up at the last minute.
Also, while I am thinking about it, I wish to welcome all our new members who have joined our Lodge this year. Some of you I see, some I do not. As members, you are ALWAYS welcome to partake of the Lodge events and facilities. And do not forget, volunteers are always welcome to help wherever and whenever you can.
I hope you all have a very safe and enjoyable Happy Thanksgiving.
