I hope that everyone had a great summer, but now it's back to business! I'd like to start off by saying that we had a problem with the printing for our June's communication which lead up to our members not getting ample notice for our degree work date being moved! So for those of you who did show up that night, my deepest apologies! On a better note we WILL be doing our MM Degree in September .
I'm looking forward to having R:.W:. District Deputy, Bro. Gary Kaufman, visiting us at our November meeting and a Colonial Craftsman Degree on a different date! Please make sure you read the upcoming events in the communication! On September 5th, we will be visiting our Brothers at star of Bethlehem, transportation will be provided to and from. I encourage who ever can attend to go! Just the ride is great to spend with each other! Ask Dave Swan and Dave (papi) Payette! For those of you who didn't know our Bro Charlie Reade, has been in and out of the hospital the last few months And that our Brother Clifford Ousley passed away over the summer as well as R:.W:.Bro. Robert Poyton, the father of our previous District Deputy, R:.W:. Ken Poyton. Our thoughts and prayers go out to you and your families! I'd also like to give our sympathies to our chaplain, Bro. Bill Pennoyer on the loss of his son!
Every time I write for our communication, I try to think of everything that I can remember, or think of, but I always miss something, so please, if there is something that needs to be shared, feel free to call me! 401-369-4357 and PLEASE leave me a message if I don't answer!
I want to thank our members who joined us on our fishing trip and golf tournament ! If you're not coming to these events, you don't know what you are missing!
I look forward to seeing all of you next month and am looking for an even better second half! W:. Whip, I hope that you're enjoying your new scooter! My last words! Never look down on someone unless you are picking them up!
