BROTHERS, at the October 3 Council meeting the membership agreed to make another pledge to the St Joseph’s restoration project. This pledge hinges on us being able to present to Council a plan for raising the money that we will pledge. I was then asked to formulate a plan. To that end, I am asking any Brother who might have any ideas on how we can raise money or wishes to sit on a committee to contact Tony Vigar at 271-0797
Brother Tony Vigar
Council meetings can sometimes be a bit slow and uneventful. The executive would like to speed things up and have more time for fellowship and socializing. To that end, the reading of the minutes has been cut out of the meeting. Minutes are now emailed to members and hard copies are available at the meeting. Aside from the ‘Lorentz luncheon special of the month’ there will be the ‘Lobsinger Event of the month’ at which big-time money prizes can be won. Prize money will be provided from the now eliminated ‘Attendance Prize’.
Also note the new starting time for Council Meetings 7:00 P.M.
