April 2017 Article

Happy Easter everyone! Cibolo Lodge held its regular meeting on Thursday, April 6, 2017 at Christ the King Lutheran Church. Our Easter Bonnet contest junior winners were Brenley and Maezey Bierstedt, and the adult winner was Dorothy Schneider.

We welcomed new junior member Jacob Anthony Tarrillion and adult member Jesus C Garza.

Guest speaker Hans Boas, professor for Germanic Linguistics in the Department of Germanic Studies and the Department of Linguistics at the University of at Austin had to rescheduled to October 5, 2017. Everyone is invited to come and listen and ask questions especially those of you that speak native German or know of anyone that still does. Hans is documenting and recording native German so the language is not lost. Our meeting starts at 7 pm at its held in the classroom of Christ the King Lutheran Church, located at 1129 Pat Booker Rd, Universal City 78148, across from the Whataburger. I will make sure to remind everyone to save the day and have posted the event on the Cibolo Lodge Facebook page.

Brenley Bierstedt brought a special guest. Flat Tyler is her flat friend and he came from Rose Garden Elementary’s second grade. His friend Exabriel sent a note explaining how he became flat. He was run over by a vacuum cleaner, poor flat Tyler. Flat Tyler has been all over but when he went to Brenley’s Grammys house he almost became a “Cows-ulty” when one of the cows really liked him and started licking him, OH NO! Good news however, Flat Tyler was rescued in time and even had a checkup complete with EKG and all is fine.

Our rummage sale is set and will be held in the parking lot on September 16 here at Christ the King Lutheran Church beginning at 8 am so mark your calendar and come out and help us support the Clemens 4H.

Join hands day will be on May 21 at Texas Lutheran University’s Jackson Auditorium at 5 pm, where we will pass out flowers to the dancers. Everyone is invited to attend and enjoy the performances, which are always a treat.

Members present were 14 adults, 3 juniors, and 1 guest (Flat Tyler). Adult attendance winners were Alvin Schulz and Dawn Bierstedt and the junior winner was Brenley Bierstedt.
Special drawing winner was # 552, Caitlyn Rose Neimietz who was not present. Next month the drawing will be $46.

The side dish winner was Vivian Brehm’s sweet rice. The dessert winner was a tie with Sherry Rakowitz blueberry coffee cake and Dawn Bierstedt’s birthday cheesecake.
