Here are the events for this week:
Monday, Sept 10 @ 7:00PM. Duck Creek Lodge No. 1419 Stated Meeting. Visit our “sister Lodge” up the street. If you’ve never visited Duck Creek, they are a bunch of great, friendly Masons, who really enjoy having people visit. Their supper is at 6:30PM. 600 N. 4th Street, Garland.
Tuesday, Sept 11 @ 7:00PM. Stated Meeting. This date is a special one and is called Patriot Day. I don’t need to tell you the significance of this date, or why we commemorate it. Please join us a stated meeting. Our Chaplain will have a presentation. Supper at 6:00PM.
Saturday, Sept 15 @ 7:00AM-2:00PM (or longer). Garland Masonic Bodies Blood Drive at Garland 441. As all our Gift of Life blood drives, this benefits the Scottish Rite Hospital for Children. There will be free breakfast provided, as well as light lunch. If you are interested in helping with preparing breakfast and/or lunch, please let me know. We also need volunteers throughout the day to help direct blood donors to the right areas, help with set-up and clean-up, etc. If you haven’t given blood lately, please come out and drop a pint for the kids!
Sunday, Sept 16 @ 12:00-3:00. Ice Cream Social. This is a family and friends events, so please bring your wives, children, grandchildren, non-Masons, etc. Come right after church services, or come by after your Sunday dinner for desert. This is a come-and-go event, so drop in and visit with the other Brethren and their family, and stay as long as you like. We’ll have the TV tuned to football in Motley Hall if you need to get your NFL fix while you’re visiting. And you’ll still be able to get home in time to watch the Cowboys beat up on Seattle at 3:05.
