January 2012 Article

Cibolo Lodge celebrated its first meeting of 2012 and it’s last meeting of the Hermann Sons calendar with sandwiches and snacks on Thursday, January 5, 2012. Due to the fire at Harmon’s Bar-B-Que, Cibolo Lodge met in the Parish Hall of Christ the King Lutheran Church in Universal City. The February regular meeting will be held in the same place.

During the regular meeting, the final plans for the installation were made. Cibolo Lodge is hosting the installation for District 14 on January 15th! Everyone is looking forward to being able to welcome our fellow lodges and friends.

A short time was taken to review the very successful Christmas Party. Many thanks were given to the committee members who worked so hard on such a joyous event. Plans are already being made for the Annual Festivities in 2012.

Officers will hold a planning meeting in late January to plan for the activities in 2012. Please watch this newsletter for the posting of events and occasions, celebrated by Cibolo Lodge.

Cheer committee, Dorothy Schneider, reported that birthdays cards were send to Florence Noethlick (86), Evelyn Siggins (92) and Catherine Cross (90). A sympathy card was sent to the family of Edith Brehm who passed on October 4th, the family of Roman Froboese who passed this life on December 22 and to the family of Arnold Katzer for the loss of his mother. Sister Schneider also reported that Get Well Cards were sent to Tammy Clark, Mary Ann Gray, Janet Triesch, Nell Shepherd and Tina Ynfante. A very special thanks to Sister Schneider who continually keeps us updated on the milestones in the lives of our fellow Hermann Sons members.

A very special congratulations was extended to Tiffany and Kyle Kuhlman who welcomed their son, Barrett on December 16th. The parents and big sister Cheyanne are all doing well and enjoying their early Christmas present.
