I hope this message finds you all well and enjoying your summer. A lot has changed here since our governor and friend Mark W. Lewis passed. We now have a new Governor and Jr. Governor.
Vincent Passantino is our new Governor, he has served on the Board for six years and I know he will make a fine Governor. I look forward to working with him.
Our Jr. Governor is an old fixture around here; he is Ralph Passantino. Ralph has served on the board for more years than I can remember. Welcome Back Ralph!
The Queen of Hearts payoff is building up again. It's a great game and a lot of fun. Why not come down Friday nights and try your luck? You could go home with more money than you came in with.
We are also opening our Social Quarters doors on Thursday nights again. I hope we are more successful with this attempt then we have been in the past. We are all here to make your lodge experience and enjoyable one, but we also need to make sound financial decisions. So, come on down Thursday nights. We have planned to run some raffles and giveaways that I know will interest you.
In closing, I would like to thank our lodge employees, our bartenders, our banquet manager and the custodian who all work to keep us in business. I all to often neglect to mention them.
Thanks also to all the members who donate money, items for raffles, flowers for our gardens and the time out of their lives to come here and VOLUNTEER. This lodge could not sustain itself without you!
I'll keep and eye out for ya!
