Cibolo Lodge held its September meeting on Thursday the 5th, enjoying brisket sandwiches prior to the meeting.

Lodge members were pleased to accept new junior members; Dakota Riley St Denis, Averie Mae Woodward, Alexandria Goymerac, Peyton Jarzombek, Isabelle Jarzombek, Ellisen Tatsch, Kaely Cisco, Sydney Robinson and William Robinson

Agent, Tina Ynfante, reported she wrote 11 applications in August and had already written 3 for September. She reported that a new application was being used that was much simpler and potential new members should find that reflected in their application.

Members will meet on October 6th for the final planning of the Christmas Party to be held on December 8, 2013 at Schertz Community Center, Building B. Tickets can be purchased by contacting any lodge member. This is always a fun event and some perfect picture taking opportunities without standing in the long lines!
