August 2014 Article

The August meeting of Cibolo Lodge 147 is the time of the Annual Memorial Service. This year’s service was hosted by Vice President Tina Ynfante. Together with AJ Schneider, they created a memorial tribute to each of our Brothers and Sisters lost in the past year.

Those we honored this year were; Sister Wanda Koch, Sister Frances Ann Kubena, Brother Frederick Rowell, Sister Jane Schlather and Brother Jerome Louis Zigmond. Our hearts go out to the families of these members.

During the business portion of the meeting, Agent Tina Ynfante reported that dance registration was online this year. Everyone should have received their packets, but if not contact the Grand Lodge for the information.

Cheer committee Dorothy Schneider reported that a Get Well card was sent to Sigfrid Swenson. A Sympathy Card was sent to the family of Jane Schlather. Notes of congratulations were sent to Florence Noethlick for her 50 year pin and to William Dietz for his 60 year pin. Each of these members will be invited to be our guests, and honored, at the Christmas Party on December 7th. Also, Sister Schneider called Ruby Bindsel, just to get caught up! During the month, she visited with Kirby Lodge and members Carroll and Linda Gloor, Dorella Colbert, Karen Harborth and Michael and Shirley Huebinger at the New Braunfels Lodge meeting.

Attendance prize winners were Megan Krula, May Rowell and Emilie Shepherd. The Special Drawing winner was Alvin Schulz. Congratulations to Alvin! The pot, next month, will start all over at $25. Remember, you must be present to win this prize.

Members are reminded that the Matching Funds Rummage Sale will be held on Saturday, September 20 at Christ the King Lutheran Church, 1129 Pat Booker Rd., beginning at 8 a.m. The proceeds from this event twill benefit the Lower valley School Restoration Project.

Our next meeting will be Thursday, September 4 at 7 p.m. This meeting will feature your favorite homemade pie! Prizes will be awarded!
