From the Exalted Ruler 11/01/2017

Hello Fellow Members,

November is here and the Holidays are fast approaching. I would like to thank everyone who came down for the member appreciation night. We had a great time and some great food. A big thanks to Steve Gillette for helping with the cooking! Also thank you to Mazie Starnes and Sabrina Riter for the wonderful desserts, they were awesome!

We also had our annual DD visitation on the 19th. Don Isom and his wife were here and spent some time getting to know everyone. Thanks to Cindy for the great dinner we had, Don really liked the chicken fried steak! In his address to the lodge he spoke about membership and the importance of bringing in new members. Your lodge is having a membership drive this year, if you sponsor 5 members who are initiated, your annual dues for the 2018 year will be paid by the lodge. I can’t think of a better way to improve your lodge, and get something for yourself!

This month brings Veterans Day, Thanksgiving, and the start of the Christmas season. When you are out and about during this busy time of year, please stop by your lodge and take a break.

Every Thursday evening Cindy is cooking up a great meal. This includes soup, salad bar, entrée, vegetables and dessert. All this for only $9.00, best deal in town! Please come down to your lodge and enjoy the newly remodeled social quarters and see what’s happening at your lodge.

I would like to remind everyone as we head into the holiday season, to remember to give thanks for the many blessings you and your family enjoy and don’t forget those less fortunate than ourselves. This year we will be making another donation to The Dalles Meals on Wheels program. This very worthwhile program helps many seniors in our community. If you haven’t made a contribution to the Christmas fund yet this year, this is where we will be putting your money to work for the best use.

I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to our service members. Veterans Day is com-ing soon and we need to take this time to say “Thank you for your service” to our service members.

I hope to see you at your lodge and please enjoy Thanksgiving with your family and friends.

Ever practice Brotherly Love,
Mark Riter, Exalted Ruler, PER

There are still a few of you folks out there who have not paid their dues for this year. I will be sending out postcards in the next week as a reminder. Your Lodge and Community depend on you!
