October 2016 Article

Cibolo Lodge No. 147 held its Halloween spooktakular meeting on Thursday October 6, 2016 at 7 pm at Christ the King Lutheran Church.

We had some super awesome costumes this year and many participants making the selection of the winners pretty hard but we were able to persevere and choose the best costume winners. The junior member winners are Javion Campos as a Grandpa, and Maezey Bierstedt as Sheriff Callie and adult winner was Joy Brown as a Devil Egg.


We are happy to announce that our rummage sale was a success and enabled us to raise $620.00 for our matching funds recipient the Cibolo Volunteer Fire Department. They will be presented with a check at our Christmas Party on December 11 and all are invited to attend.20161006_205256
