August has been an extremely busy month for our lodge and I can't be more proud of my officers, the members, and our beautiful lodge! On August 16, 2017, our District Deputy Grand Exalted Ruler conducted his visitation to our lodge. We hosted an amazing Pot Roast dinner and performed our initiation for him as well. Friday, August 18, 2017, kicked off our Jamboree weekend.
Folks from lodges in our district participated in a Chowder Cook-Off on Saturday, August 19, 2017. The outside deck was adorned with a Pirate Themed Booth, a Return to Margaritaville Booth, a bunch of folks cooking Paella on the barbeque, and lots of snacks and drinks. Congratulations to the Gnarly North Coast Chowderheads for taking first place and Return to Margaritaville for second place. Everyone had a great time. Also on Saturday was the Jamboree Seafood Dinner. Over one hundred attendees from lodges throughout our district came out for this amazing dinner and auction. Our auction raised approximately $6,000. On Sunday, August 20, 2017, Officers of the lodge participated in a Jamboree meeting and clinic in which we all received some valuable information for the upcoming year.
As summer comes to a close and fall approaches, be sure to check your Herd Talk for upcoming fabulous events at our lodge, including the Octoberfest, the Men's Fashion Show, a Portuguese Dinner, Halloween Havoc and much, much more! Hopefully, you all survived our uneventful Eclipse and I look forward to seeing you at the lodge!
