March 2016 Article

Happy spring from Cibolo Lodge # 147. We held our regular meeting on March 3, 2016 at 7:00 pm at Christ the King Lutheran Church in Universal City. We celebrated the “Wearing O’ the Green” in honor of St. Patrick’s Day and had sub sandwiches and favorite green foods. Our side dish and dessert winners were Gail Gray’s awesome spinach and strawberry salad and Nell Shepherd’s yummy green pistachio pudding dessert. We will be having homemade sausage at our April 7th meeting.

ATTENTION GERMAN SPEAKERS: There is a group from the University of Texas in Austin that is interested in recording anyone that still speaks Texas German dialect so that it can be taught for years to come. The contact information is: 1-512-910-5047 and the email address is: tex… So everyone that is interested in preserving the German dialect that is spoken in our area, please contact them and assist them if you are able.

We will be having a Rummage Sale of September 17th in the parking lot at Christ the King Lutheran Church, 1129 Pat Booker Rd, in Universal City, just across from the What-a-burger. This will be for our 50/50 recipient of the Cibolo Volunteer Fire Department. Save your stuff that you want to donate and then come out and support us in our matching fund fundraiser.

Attendance Awards: Gail Gray and Tracy Campos, Junior Barrett Kuhlman. Special Drawing: Mary Ann Gray wins the $40.00 and next month it reverts back to $25.00 and increases by $3.00 each meeting there is not a winner.

Our March Happy Birthday goes out to Dorothy Schneider.
