It's November already! Wow! Seems like summer went by quick. Things are good around the lodge and getting better. Social Quarters A/C is fixed . . . just in time to turn on the heat. We still have a few projects to get done before the snow flies and could use helpful hands, if you would like to help improve the lodge come see me. I am now in the Office full time 8 am. to 4:30 pm. Monday through Friday, baring the occasional Doctor appointments. I always welcome ideas of things to do for entertainment or happenings around the lodge.
Last month we had three successful events occur at the same time in three different areas of the lodge. It was Fun, Busy, but most of all successful. Big thanks to everyone that pulled together to make it all happen.
With over 600 Men and Women calling this their home lodge, we can expect more days with multiple things going on. I am happy to say "We can handle it", thanks to a great staff and group of volunteers.
Finally November is Retention month, look for fun ways to participate described elsewhere in this newsletter. Also if there is someone you haven't seen around for a while call them and find out if everything is ok with them. Maybe they quit coming in and they need your encouragement to come back. When you see a new face introduce yourself and welcome them. Please let me know how I can help you.
