Well, two down and one to go! I would like to thank those who came out and supported the fundraiser this past Saturday. We served dinner to the AMD group. Meatloaf was the main entrée and once again went very well. We received many positive compliments on the dinner. We made $110.00 after the bills were paid. There was plenty of help and we enjoyed the fellowship during the event.
The 3rd fundraiser in three weeks is this Saturday, 1/4. The Fellowcraft Club is preparing and serving dinner to the KYCH group.The count is currently over 20. Italian chicken and roasted potato’s will be the main entrée. Appetizers will be served around 5pm with dinner served at 5:15.
I hope you and your families enjoyed the nice summer we have had. It won’t belong before we will be getting the coats and shovels out. As summer comes to a close, a new lodge year is about to begin. I am very excited about the ensuing year and hope to see many of you at lodge.
Our first communication is Tuesday, September 10th. Dress will be casual. We will have our Welcome Back Cookout. Hotdogs, beans, potato salad, and corn on the cob will be on the menu. Dinner is at 6:30. Dessert will follow the meeting.
The prgram for the evening will be the Trestle Board, and catch up from last year. Also will discuss
the two committee’s that we required to have. The Finance Committee, and Investigation Committee.
I would like to thank those who were able to attend Old Timers Night and for making my first meeting as Worshipful Master a very enjoyable one. We had all officer’s and Trustee’s in attendance except for just three. We also had nine Past Masters from Blazing Star in attendance; Wor’s Vernon Frost (1976), Denis Funseth (1977), Dick Mann (1979), George Sleeper (1980), Russ Knox (1984), Bob Kimpton (1995), Dave Cammarano (2007-2009), Russ Barber (2010), and Dave Breth (2011-2013). Big thanks also to Bro John Evans for once again turning his barn into a lodge room for the evening. I believe the overall attendance was close to 60. There were plenty of laughs and fellowship throughout the evening.
While the lodge is dark during the summer months, we still have many things going on. The Fellowcraft Club still meets the 3rd Saturday of each month. There are a couple of fundraisers that the Fellowcraft Club participates in. The Reunion Day weekend in late July, and the Car Show in late August. Emails with more details will be coming as the dates get closer. The East Aurora Little League baseball season is going on. Blazing Star has sponsored a team in this league for the last several years. If anyone is interested in attending any of the games, let me know and I will try to get a schedule posted. I hope that I will see many of you over the summer.
In closing, I would like to wish you and your families a very safe and fun summer.
