August 31, 2014 in Grand Lodge
Wow, I can’t believe how fast the first quarter of this year has gone.
We had the Youth Camp Festival, and although not as well attended as we would have liked, we did get to see the completion of the pool and it was available for swimming during the camper’s sessions.
This is one of my projects, and as the board had to spend money from their reserve funds to build the pool, please see if your lodge can’t open their pocket books and donate some money to build that reserve back up.
In June, I was also able to give my Marshal Marlene Bois a surprise mini reception. We got her good
In July, I attended ODM’s in Woodland and Cupertino – both of which were very nice meetings. Some of us also worked at the Garlic Festival at the end of the month. We had a reception for my Conductor, Ruth Schuyler in Lompoc with a follow up day going to Solvang and the Ostrich Farm, where we got to feed the birds. It was a fun trip.
August was busy with a reception for the Theta Rho President, the Saratoga Home BBQ, an ODM in Auburn, and a trip to the SGL Youth Days as an escort for the TRA President.
At the end of August the Membership Rally was held at the Sugar Barge RV Park – Once again, while not a lot of people in attendance, a fun time was had by all who did come. Pedal Boating on the River, s’mores, swimming and Ben Shuler at the BBQ. Oh yeah, they surprised Ben and I with an Anniversary Cake on Saturday night. Thanks everyone.
My visits will swing into high gear starting with the 26th of September, with a visit to Oroville.
Don’t forget to come to the receptions on September 27th in Santa Rosa and October 18th in Lodi.
Love to you all
