Brethren :

Please see the note below from Ken regarding helping out at the Erie County Fair supporting the Masonic ID program.

I am asking for your support on Tuesday, August 12th for Blazing Star Lodge. There are two shifts, 10:00 am to 3:00 pm, and 2:30 pm until closing. If you can only make a partial shift, that’s okay too.  All help is appreciated Spouses and girlfriends are also welcome to participate. Please let me know as soon as possible if you can support your lodge for this important Masonic program. You will be provided free entry into the fair. If you have any questions, just give me a call.CHIP

Thank you
Wor John

 

Good morning,
We are now 19 days away from the opening of this year Erie County Fair. To date I have received word from some of our Lodges. Some have locked in dates that they will cover during the Fair: Living Stone will help cover the 10th and the 17th, Charles W. Cusman Lodge will assist with the 10th, Washington Lodge has picked the 9th, and West Seneca Lodge has the 13th. Let me know if your Lodge has a date in mind (weekdays are greatly appreciated).
Thank you for your response to date.
There are still a lot of days and time slots waiting to be filled. Please continue canvas your Lodge and get as many volunteers as possible so that we can maintain the success rate that we have experienced in the past.
You do not have to be computer savvy to work at the site. We need individuals to work the laminating machine, check people in, crowd control, greeters, and many other functions.
Remember we are trying to fill two basic time slots each day, one from about 10:00am through 3:00pm and the other from 2:30pm till close. The volunteers are welcome for any day and multiple days are encouraged. They don’t have to be with just their own Lodge. We like to increase the camaraderie among all Brothers whenever possible.
Spouses, significant others, and friends are welcome. We will work with you to cover admission and parking where possible. Get me lists of your volunteers their date(s), contact information as soon as you are able.

Ken
