Because of the Members in Action grant, two students with a passion for STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) helped form a new group in our community for youth who love STEM as well. It is called the New Prague Newtonian Science Club, and it will be led by Anna and Brian Prchal, with guidance from their mom Jodi Prchal (a teacher in the district).

One of the beautiful aspects of being involved with Western Fraternal Life is knowing that your history, often generations of family history, is being preserved. Through the Fraternal Herald, minutes, and lodge histories, we have been able to encapsulate over a century’s worth of memories. Now, it’s time to pass the story collecting on to another generation.

Many well-meaning folks send things to veterans overseas, and while it is always appreciated, some things are more needed than others. I asked my veteran husband, and some of his friends, to come up with a list of things they would like most in care packages.
