Wow! What a year we are having. Oh...that’s right we are just getting started. Over the Summer we have planned what we hope will be record breaking events in our Lodge. We also hope to achieve things that we have been building upon over the last few years. Throughout the Summer, it was great to meet some of the Brothers at various events, many of our Officers also met to talk about details regarding our Trestle-board, which made it possible to finalize this years Masonic events.
In July our Brother Secretary Carl Bliss had his 65th Birthday bash. It was awesome to see that we had enough of our Brothers attending where we could have opened Lodge and had many on the side lines.
On Thursday, August 7th we had our Annual SkyChiefs Baseball game. I would like to thank Brother Jeremy Thomas for arranging the tickets for our box seats, Brother SW Eric Driscoll who did an AWESOME job organizing the entire event down to the smallest detail, and W:. Mike Marney for starting this event originally. This event was our largest attendance to date, all Brothers and their families had a great time to remember.
Konosioni #950 had a different day at the NYS Fair Safety ID this year which was Friday, August 29th. It is great to see how many Brothers from the Lodges in the district work together for such a great cause.
On Saturday, September 20th, we will be holding our Annual Brotherhood Retreat at the Pines on Skaneatles Lake. This is always a great time shared by the Brethren of our Lodge.
We will be hosting our 1st Blood Drive with the American Red Cross on Saturday, September 27th held at: The Miori Martial Arts Cicero location. We are also very excited to have Brothers from The Fayetteville Lodge and I would like to thank W:. Dan Campis for working with us on this event.
Looking ahead to our first event in October, on Thursday 10/2 we will be holding our Annual Table-Lodge at Bella Domani on Taft Rd. in No. Syracuse. This will be a great event for Brothers across the District to get together for an evening of fun and Brotherhood. This is also one of our bring a friend nights and is a perfect opportunity for any future Brothers to be able to meet Brothers from Konosioni #950 plus many other Lodges, along with Dignitaries from the District.
If there is any Brother in distress or in need of assistance in any manner, please do not hesitate to contact me.
