Members all, I would like to start this note with a shout out to every single one of our volunteers. Without their dedication and perseverance, we may not be able to enjoy the many functions and events that take place at the Lodge. Please, when you see them, thank them. They are the very backbone of our organization.
You may have received a post card from the Grand Lodge recently. This card gives you a bit of relief from past due Lodge dues. Simply pay this year’s dues and continue your membership with no penalties or loss of time. Supporting your Lodge in this way helps us continue the great work we do.
Please read the event calendar when you get it. I would love to see you at a few of our functions this summer. AND, if you would like to volunteer for anything, drop in or call to see what areas we need help.
The new fiscal year is well underway now and our new officers have settled in. If you haven’t attended a meeting as of late, please, feel free to do so. They are held at 7pm the second and fourth Mondays of the month. Attending the meetings is a great way to stay up on the goings on at the Lodge.
The current regime is making plans to build a chicken barbeque pit for future fund-raising events. If you have any material such as cement blocks, lumber, re-rod or other material to donate or would like to make a cash donation to the Lodge for this endeavor, please call yours truly at 813 352 1261. We have started a fund earmarked for this project. Think of it like we did the new bar, or the new member’s entrance. I know it takes a while but in the end we succeed. Our goal is to start construction in January, 2022.
In closing, please remember to pay your dues and stop in once in a while to say hello. We look forward to seeing you in the very near future. Take care and may God Bless.

Greeting to all,
As your new Leading Knight, I am excited to see and help our Lodge grow.
It is great to see new membership growing. Hopefully, we can get much-needed new help on our committees.
A big thank you to our very active members who have our Lodge in great shape-both physically and in organization.
Keep up the good work everyone.

Hope all is well with you! I think we are now getting into the warmer weather and everyone will start getting out and enjoying themselves. Everything has been picking up at the Lodge and keeping us busy. We know it is that time of year when some of you will be leaving to go back up north or just traveling but hope you will come in and see us whenever you can and stay safe and well in your travels.
By now most of us have had our Covid Shots! We will all certainly be happy when all of this is behind us and we can feel normal again. Our new Officers are now in office and eager to have a great year.
We have several things going on this month and hope you can join us for some great times. On May 1st we have our Steak Shoot from 3:00-5:00 pm. Immediately following is the “KENTUCKY DERBY PARTY”. Get those hats ready for our Best Kentucky Derby Hat Contest. The cost is just $6.00 and will cover the food.
On Saturday, May 8th, at 10:00 a.m., we are having a Mother’s Day Breakfast. We are doing it on Saturday so you will have Sunday to spend with family and friends and enjoying your Mother’s Day. Please call and make a reservation before Friday so we will know how many to cook for. The cost will be $8.00 per person and all MOTHERS EAT FREE! So, bring those Moms out for a nice breakfast and start the weekend off great for her.
We have been getting a lot of new Members so come in and meet them. Below is just a recap of our calendar.

We hope you will make plans to come and enjoy some great meals and great entertainment this month. We enjoy seeing all of you each week.
