February 2013 Article

Cibolo Lodge held its February meeting on Thursday, February 7th. Members enjoyed brisket and brought their favorite Valentine dessert. Congratulations to Nell Shepherd who brought the member’s favorite dessert and to Fay Fey who brought the favorite side dish!

Members unanimously welcomed new adult members Cody Fuentes and Amanda Fuentes and accepted the transfer to our lodge of Gail Marie Owen. A special thank you goes out to Hunter DeLeon who referred the most new members in 2012 and helped up reach our new member goal, once again!

The annual events calendar was review and accepted by those in attendance. March will feature an Easter Bonnet contest, the annual Flag Day Ceremony in June and the favorite costume contest in October. The full calendar is available from any member.

The Matching Funds project deadline is March 31st. Members are encouraged to present their fund raising recipient ideas at the March regular meeting, to be held at Harmon’s Bar-B-Que on Thursday, March 7th.

Cheer committee, Dorothy Schneider, reported that a birthday card was sent to Edna Rauch, celebrating her 97th birthday on January 31st. Sister Rauch has been a member since August 24, 1967 and is the lodge’s oldest living member. Sister Schneider also reported that she and President John Gray met with Merwin O Hehs and presented his 60-year pin. Congratulations to both these treasured members.

Attendance prizes were awarded to Arnold Katzer, John Fey and Sarah Shepherd. The special prize drawing was May Rowell who was not present to claim her prize. Sister Rowell and her son, Stewart, are fifty year pin recipients in May, 2013.

We hope to see you at our next regular meeting on March 7th at Harmon’s Bar-B-Que in Cibolo at 7 p.m.
