Happy New Year.

Yes it is 2019 and 2018 went by very quick. I hope everyone had a safe holiday. I want to start off the new year on a positive note and thank everyone that helps out/volunteer at your lodge. If it was not for all of these people your lodge would not be able to do the things we do. I was asked to recognize some of these people by name but I have decided not to because some don't want the recognition even though they should get it. If you see someone in the kitchen, taking out garbage or even using a mop tell them thank you because they are doing something for the lodge and not getting paid for it. All the people that work in the kitchen on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday night dinners are all volunteers, this includes all the waitress's, cooks, and bartenders. I know you can't go anywhere in this town or several other towns and get the same service or amount of food for the same price. With all that being said I say THANK YOU ALL.

Now for some not so positive news. The past week and a half we have had some plumbing issues and we think we have finally got all this taken care of. We had to close the women's bathrooms both on the social quarters and hall side on two different weekends. This issue cost the lodge just over two thousand dollars for repairs. I want to thank the WOTM for making a donation to the lodge in the amount of one thousand dollars to help off-set some of this cost. I can say that with all this work being done we did learn a lot about how the plumbing is under the floors. A couple months ago we also lost the back A/C unit in the hall and almost had a fire. The blower motor in this unit burnt up and all but caught on fire, there was a lot of smoke but some fast acting on a couple peoples part stopped it from being a lot worse than it could have been. This motor has been replaced and as of this past weekend is back up and running.

Now for some good news. The lodge Christmas dance we had was a huge success. We had over 100 people show up for this and most everyone brought food. I would like to thank all of the members that brought their friends and family, we did get a few new members out of this so let's keep this going. Everyone I talked to said they had a real good time and can't wait till we have another dance. We are looking at having a dance in February, still working on this. We will let everyone know through flyers and social media. Our New Year's party was not as big as it was last year but all that did show up had a good time and we rang in the new year with a bang. Our Friday night dinners have slowed down a little but I feel that is because of the holidays. Like I said earlier you can't go anywhere and get the same service or amount of food for this low of a price.

I know it might be a little early to start talking about elections for new Officers in the lodge but it will be here before you know it. We are looking for members that want to get involved to help make the lodge a better place. All positions are open. The only one that requires any prior board time is for the Governor's position. All others you just have to be a member in good standings and be a member for at least six months if you run for the Treasurer's job.

Thank you everyone and lets keeps things moving in the right direction. Sign up a new member or talk to a former member and get them back in.
