August 2018

We had our annual picnic on August 5 at the Willow River City Park. Members enjoyed a good day of visiting and sunny weather.

Members were saddened by the death of Sylvia Larson at 97-years old. She passed away where she resided in Blaine, MN, and was an Honorary Member of our lodge.

Rosie Mielke will be donating pencil packets to the elementary students at Willow River School at the beginning of the new school year.

June 2018

Our lodge members met on June 25. We discussed our upcoming picnic plans and also what yearly donations we will be making.

Our treasurer reviewed the lodge account with us. Due to a low account balance and small participation in events or activities, we are struggling or unable to fulfill some of our past donations.

Kaia Dobosenzki, a member of our lodge, graduated from Willow River High School on May 25.

Our annual picnic was held on August 5 at the Willow River City Park at 12:30 p.m. 

January 2018

Members met on January 23 at Cassidy’s Restaurant. Three officers and one member attended. We audited our treasury report and reviewed our activity form.

A number of members donated pill bottles and glasses to local charities. 

We set a date for our annual potluck/picnic for August 5 at 12:30 p.m. in the Willow River City Park.
Our next meeting will be held in June at Dode Brabec’s home.

November 2017

We are saddened by the passing of two members, Robert Brabec and Elaine Drahosh. Robert was our past president, secretary, and a 75-year member. He dedicated much time, effort and involvement working with our lodge. Elaine was involved in many community events and organizations where she lived. She was a 50-year member. They will be missed. Our sincere condolences to their families.

Members donated Thanksgiving dinners to three families. Thank you cards were received.

August 2017

We held our annual picnic on August 6 at the Willow River City Park Pavilion. We had two 75-year members. Dode Brabec presented Rose Anne Doboszenski and James Zalesky with their pins. 

We were happy to have Ann Danelski, who is one of our oldest members and a past officer, attend with her daughter Barb.

March 2017

Lodge officers and some members held a meeting at the Mermaid Café in Askov on March 21. We discussed our funds and what donations we can give. Due to the lack of active members and money in our account we have to limit our donations.

We will have our annual potluck picnic on August 6 at the Willow River City Park at 12:30 p.m.
