FROM THE SECRETARY...
Can you believe is already October? We had a great time on Heritage Festival weekend and it was good to see many of you down at the lodge. I'm looking forward to seeing you all again at the Gun Raffle in November!
Unfortunately, we had to say goodbye to two long-time members, Glenn Ritzenthaler and Jack Wangler, who both passed away early in September. Jack was a member for 33 years, and Glenn (or Ritzy) was a member for 69 years and was a past ER. Our lodge was lucky to have such dedicated members and both will be sorely missed.
We initiated three new members this past month- Richard Chwalik, Chris Kiefer, and Martin Coffmen, Jr (Junior). Let's give them a warm welcome to the lodge!
Laura Johnson, Secretary
