Exalted Ruler’s Column – February 2018

Greetings All!

The weather is chilly and we are clearly in the midst of winter. I want to thank all those individuals who traveled from near and far to participate in the Weekend in the Redwoods. We had a jammed packed Friday night Cook Your Own Steak and a wonderful turnout for the Crab Feed on Saturday. Unfortunately, due to extreme weather conditions we were unable to provide whole crab, fresh from our waters. Kevin Christie did a great job in providing a fabulous seafood dinner as an alternative which included, pick and peel prawns, bay shrimp, oysters and picked crab. It was a wonderful event and we received nothing but positive feedback. I also want to thank Vickie Matthews for her fabulous decorations. Our entryway looked like the gateway to an amazing beachside adventure. The decorations throughout the lodge were amazing. I want to also thank Donna Jordan and Linda Nunes for the beautiful paintings that were raffled off. We had a very successful weekend and so many people need to be thanked for their time, energy and effort to make this a success! THANK YOU!

Please mark your calendars for the upcoming Children’s Easter Party as well as the Volunteer Appreciation Dinner. The Lodge Officers will be cooking dinner for all the volunteers as a way to say “Thank you” for all you do! Stay warm and well during these Winter months!
