Members met on September 5 at the Francis Creek Diner. Paul Rameker presented the scholarship check for Connor Wallander to his grandparents since he couldn’t attend.
We discussed our progress on the new point system and how the officers are getting a better understanding of it. We will probably remain a lower earning lodge, but feel we can remain in the system. Members reported the recent article in the Fraternal Herald showed some things we do community wise.
Our Christmas party date is December 3 and we determined the price for members/non-members and set the menu. The party will be at DeGreef’s in Wayside, WI. Other details were also determined.
This month’s magazine donation was quite large and our committee left a large selection of magazines at two local senior homes. Three members also visited elderly residents when they made the delivery.
Our next meeting will be at 1:30 p.m. on November 14 at the Kellnersville Community Center. We will assemble and send out invitations to the Christmas party.
Secretary Korinek gave guests brochures with information about Western, and gave contact information for Agent Kolarik.
A meeting/picnic was held in June. President Don Weber talked about the benefits of Western, not only for insurance, but also for the friendship/social get-togethers. The lodge provided meat and members brought dishes to share.
After the picnic, we had our annual bike giveaway. The winner was Mallory Novy, daughter of Kellnersville’s Fire Departments President Joe Novy and his wife Sheila. Joe has assisted us with many community activities in the past.
We presented a scholarship to Connor Wallander. Connor will be attending college this fall and will be studying to be a Veterinarian. We wish Connor the very best during her many years of study to achieve her goal.
Games were played, with many prizes given.
Members met in July. President Weber answered questions concerning the point system, and donations made by the lodge. Secretary Korinek and Treasurer Rameker expressed concerns with the new concept and don’t understand some of the new requirements.
We discussed the Christmas party. Paul will try to secure the first Sunday in December at De Greif’s in Wayside. Any issues will be discussed at the September meeting.
Our next meeting will be held at the Francis Creek Diner on September 5 at 8 a.m. It features the new popular Farm to Table concept, using as much local meats, breads, and vegetables as possible.
