Exalted Ruler Message

Happy December everyone. I hope this note finds everybody in good spirits and health!

I want to remind you about the upcoming adult Christmas party on December 13th at the Lodge. Food and entertainment for all…make your reservation early.

You should have reserved your tickets for New Year’s Eve by now. The deadline was November 30th. That’s going to be a fun party!

Just a heads up, we got the new concrete pad poured and inspected and are now waiting for the A/C contractor to get some time freed up. 

In closing, I’d like to wish everybody a huge Merry Christmas and a safe and prosperous New Year. Take care and may God bless.

Fraternally Yours,

Phil Rafferty E.R.

A Note from your Leading Knight

 Greetings and Merry Christmas to all. 

This year sure did fly by; it seems like we just put all the Christmas decorations away and here we are putting them up again. We are looking forward to all the happenings at the Lodge this month which you will find on the Herd calendar. Hope you will join in on all the fun.

I would like to thank all our volunteers for all the hard work they do, and especially all the ladies on the House Committee who stay busy all the time planning all the dinners, entertainment, and all the decorations for the Lodge and all our members. A BIG thank you ladies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

In closing I wish all of you a blessed Merry Christmas and a healthy New Year.


God Bless,

Rich Griffiths, Leading Knight

Hello once again,

We would first like to welcome all our friends & family back from the north, or wherever you spent your summer!! We are glad you are back!! We have a busy time coming up with the holidays and hope you will be able to spend a little time with us!! 

We had hoped that the Thursday evening karaoke would be a good addition but since it hasn’t for the month of December it will be moved to Thursday afternoons from 2:00 – 5:00 p.m. Hope you can join Terry for some fun singing Karaoke. There is a limited menu for Thursday afternoon since we don’t have the personnel to cook so often. 

We still have the Golden Elk on Thursday evenings at 7:00 p.m. The amount seems to grow every week. We also get together on Thursday evenings to bowl and enjoy just having a great time. We will be starting up a shuffleboard league in January so if you are interested, there is a signup sheet on the board at the front door. You will also find flyers for the events going on.

By popular demand we are moving the Friday night dinner dances back to 5:00pm - dancing at 6:00. We tried the later time and didn’t really help so beginning January it will change back to 5:00 pm.

Call Cindy 770-653-2360!!

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to give us a call. As always if you would be interested in volunteering for any of these events or anything at the Lodge we would love to hear from you. We appreciate all our volunteers and always welcome more!! We could especially use volunteers for the kitchen. With more things going on and food to prepare it gets a little busy so if you are a cook or just want to help out please let us know. It would be wonderful if we could get a couple of groups to switch off with all the kitchen duties. Give it some thought and let us know!!! 

Have a wonderful Holiday Season and hope we will be able to share it with you!!!

Your House Committee,

Cindy Griffiths, Sherry MacKeil, Nora Hughson, Diane Hein & Gin Poisson.
