This month Dawn Beirstedt is celebrating her birthday. Dawn recently helped make the Join Hands Day Project in May a huge success. Our members handed out pre-ordered flowers to families at Texas Lutheran University’s Jackson Auditorium on May 15 for our dance recital participants.

A special thank you goes to Brenley Beirstedt. Brenley bravely, 20160602_210414and adorably, stood (on a chair) before the Cibolo Lodge and led us in prayer for the Father’s Day brisket dinner, prior to our June meeting. A drawing was held for all attending fathers for a chance to win a $20 Home Depot gift card. Congratulations to the lucky winner, Kyle Kuhlman.

Attendance award winners this month were Tiffany Kuhlman and Tracy Campos, as well as junior member Javion Campos. The prize for best side dish went to Sherri Rakowitz for her delicious squash casserole while Tracy Campos’ graham cracker chocolate chip cookies (try saying that 5 times fast) won for best dessert.

Mark your calendars. June 14 is Flag Day. On June 14, 1777 the Second Continental Congress adopted our nation’s flag with the final version enacted in 1818. Join us on Tuesday the 14th at Cibolo City Hall to commemorate this occasion. An email will be sent out prior to the 14th with more information, confirming time and location.

Help us kick off the summer on July 7th by bringing in your favorite picnic food. Our bingo prize will be doubled this and the special drawing prize is now up to $34. Remember, you must be present to win the special drawing.

Bowlers get ready! July 30-31 and August 6-7, Dart Bowl in Austin will be hosting a state wide bowling tournament. Also, on August 6, Oak Hills Country Club will be holding a Bowl-A-Thon from 3:00-6:00PM to raise money for scholarships. Sign up sheets are available.
