February Message From the Exalted Ruler


We started January off with a New Year’s Eve Luau to warm up on a very chilly and snowy night. While we munched on Poke and Hawaiian-style pulled pork in the club, Mother Nature dumped a several feet of snow outside. Thank you to our talented meal planner, food prepper and all around awesome chef, Steve Remde, for his outstanding meal. I know he had a lot of help from Tim Haight, other members and
friends and we all appreciate their efforts!

On January 3rd, Steve Fellows, Bill Gregory and their kitchen crew thrilled the Southerner in all of us with chicken fried steak and mashed potatoes for the first payday café of 2019! Proceeds from this great dinner went to C&B Trust.

On January 12th, friends and family joined Raymond and Betty Smith at the Club to celebrate Betty’s birthday. Betty does so much for our Lodge and our community so it was great fun to put her on a pedestal for the day.

On January 17th, it was another great home cooked meal for the payday café. Our talented PERs served upcmeatloaf with some scrumptious sides for their annual Stu Crowley dinner. Proceeds went to the LodgecActivities fund.

On January 25th, our Bar Manager planned a special night for the cigar and bourbon lovers among us. Hecwas able to get his hands on the ultra-rare 10, 12 and 15 year old Pappy VanWinkle Bourbon, which wascpaired with a variety of specialty cigars. The club was filled with a happy crew that evening.

Finally, January ended with a rare 3rd payday café on the 31st and we were the luckier for it! Ben Bouman and his team served amazing and very popular beef stroganoff, made with NY strip steak and served with candied carrots. If he offers this meal again, make sure to add it to your calendar. Proceeds from this payday went to Youth Activities.

Looking forward, get ready for some changes in the next few months. At the February Lodge meetings, the process of nominating and electing our new officers will take place. The PERs will nominate new officers on February 11th and the membership will cast their ballots on February 25th—make your voices heard during these important times.

Fraternally Yours,
Brett Ray, Exalted Ruler
