Brothers, summer is ending. It seems that we were just talking about summer and here we are in October already. The trees are turning and the

length of daylight is shorter. Once again, the season of activities starts. Our mission of Christian Charity is one of our biggest goals. To make them successful we need more men and women to volunteer and participate as in the past. Let us volunteer our time and talents also and help our commu- nity as necessary.

There are several items that need be noted. First, I was quite surprised to see so few members at our September meeting. Our meetings are held the 3rd Tuesday of every month at 7pm at the hall. We will hold an induction of new members at our meeting on Tuesday October 17 at 7:00 at the hall.

On October 21st is our annual Turkey party. This is one of our major fundraisers for the year. If you have never attended you, miss a great party, and chances to win gift cards and wine. We are also seeking donations for prizes, gift cards, gift certificates, wine, beer and liquor for the Tur- key Party. Please try to support this. It is a fun time!

In November, the men hold a month-long lottery, again a major fund rising for our division. If you need tickets, they are available at the hall, or call me at 724-5794.

There will be a meeting date change in December. The regular meeting is in the busy holiday week. For our conveyance, it will be on the second Tuesday of the month, the 12th at 7:00.

A nominating committee was formed at our September meeting. Anyone wishing to run for office for 2017 Please call Tom Kelly at 775-3415

The Corporation held its meeting in September. A nomination committee was set for two vacancies. If you are interested, call me. Next meeting is October 23rd at 7:00 at the hall, the nominating committee will give a report, On Monday 27th is the Annual Meeting and election of directors.
