June 2013 Article

Cibolo Lodge held their regular meeting on Thursday, June 6, 2013 at Harmon’s Bar-B-Que in Cibolo.  Members enjoyed a chicken dinner prior to the meeting.

Cibolo Lodge was proud to represent the Retirement Home and presented a $1000 Scholarship to John Penkunis, a senior at Steele High School, on their behalf.  John will attend Texas A&M, in the fall, and will be a member of the Corp.  John attended the meeting with his mother, Donna.  The lodge was proud to have them attend our meeting and be a part of this presentation

Plans were finalized for the Flag Day Ceremony at Cibolo City Hall on Friday, June 14th.  The annual ceremony is held at the flag poles located in front of Cibolo City Hall.  The ceremony is always a favorite and contains many readings and historical recitations of the flag.  The annual event is dedicated to the memory of Brother Patrick Osborn.

The lodge won’t hold a regular meeting in July, but will hold a social on Sunday, July 14th at Harmon’s Bar-B-Que.  Chopped beef sandwiches will be provided and members are asked to bring a dish to share.  Games, including Bunco, Bingo and Mexican Trail will be played.  This is a great opportunity to invite potential members to share the Hermann Sons story in a social setting.  We will begin at 4 p.m.  Please plan to join us for an afternoon of food and fun.

Side dish winners were Gail Gray and Cliff Shepherd.  Attendance prize winners were Alvin Schulz, Jerry Rakowitz and Bret Gray.  Cameron Callahan was the Special Drawing Winner, but was not present to claim his prize.

An officer planning meeting will be held on Sunday, July 28 at 6 p.m. at the home of Joy and Jonny Brown.  Officers will outline the final five months of the year, including the Christmas Party to be held on Sunday, December 8th.  Watch this newsletter for details of this event.

The next regular meeting will be held on Thursday, August 1st at Harmon’s Bar-B-Que in Cibolo.  Hope to see you then.
