March 2015 Article

The March regular meeting of Cibolo Lodge was a joint celebration of St Patrick’s Day and Easter since the lodge will not meet again until after Easter, on April 9th.

The Easter Bonnet winner was Dorothy Schneider. Dorothy represented not only Easter, but her birthday, with her Happy Birthday necklaces and St. Patrick’s Day with her decorated shirt. We appreciate Dorothy’s embracing of all our festivities.

Sister Schneider reported the passing of Sister Lucille Henk Hehs. A moment of silence was passed in memory of Sister Hehs. A contribution will be made to the Scholarship Fund in her memory.

Members welcomed new members Giovanni DeLuca Jr, Caleb DeLuca, Tamie DeLuca, Giovanni DeLuca Sr., Jackson Steindorf and Kennedy Steindorf. Congratulations to the DeLuca family who is now a 100% family.

The Matching Funds recipient and fundraiser were named. This year’s efforts will benefit Thrive Cancer Services. We are proud to be able to honor this agency and thank them for their services to our own, Tina Ynfante, during her cancer battle. The Lodge will sell World’s Finest Chocolate $1 candy bars. If you would like to sell some of these bars or would like to purchase candy to support this effort, do not hesitate to contact any lodge member.
