November Message From the Exalted Ruler


October was a great month for our Lodge. There were many fun events and the bar has been busy making up for the slow summer months.

We began the month with the first of two Flag retirement ceremonies that were coordinated by our Veterans Committee Chairman, Alan Woodward. The remains of the Flags are placed in Ammo cans with engraved plaques placed on the lid of the can. The cans will be respectfully buried at a later date when all Flags in our possession have been retired. This has become a daunting task because of the volume of Flags. Alan has done a great job working with other agencies and individuals in our community and the response has been fantastic.

There were two dinners cooked at the Lodge this month, the first dinner was held on the eleventh. I hosted a pork roast dinner and on the 1st Craig Taylor did a non-payday dinner. Craig and I would like to thank everyone who helped cook and came out for a meal. There was not a payday dinner held on the 25th due to conflicts with the Halloween party but as Craig demonstrated non-payday dinners work as well.

Another diner of an unconventional nature was sponsored by Alan Woodward and Bob Villa. The “MRE” Meals Ready to Eat dinner conducted to honor Veterans and teach civilians about the sacrifices our troops endure. This meal was much appreciated by all, thank you both for the effort put into this event.

The Halloween events were great, the pumpkin carving was awesome, the party on the 27th was well attended and I was told one of the best parties in many years. A lot of money was raised for our Christmas families which is the true joy of this event. A big thanks goes out to the Halloween committee and all who helped, great job.

The vote to rent part of our parking lot out to the employees of our future new neighbors Natural Grocers past, more details will be forth coming. Thank you Tim Haight for your diligence, expertise, and hard work on this project not to mention the revenue it will bring to the Lodge.

Last but not least we initiated 7 new members into our order on Tuesday the 9th I want to welcome you and hope to see you in Lodge often. In addition membership Lapsation is at 2% which is hard to achieve, this by the way was recognized by Grand Lodge. We are on track to be positive 7 to 10 members this year, great job everyone.

Fraternally Yours,
Brett Ray, Exalted Ruler
