Trestleboard: Summer 2012

From the East


I hope your summer is off to great start.

Mark your calendars for Saturday August, 4 from 4-8 pm. We will be having our first annual “Fun Day” at Weaver Park on Merrimon. The lodge will provide burgers and hot dogs and we are asking members to bring a dish, their friends and family and favorite games. This should be a great afternoon for everyone. Please RSVP to Ron Lambe so we can be sure to have enough food for everyone.

Also mark your calendars for Saturday September, 8 at 8 am. This will be our third Theater Degree and, I believe, our best so far!As always, it is an honor to serve such an active and vibrant Lodge and I appreciate all the hard work that you put into making Mt. Hermon the special Lodge it is.

Fraternally yours,

JR Yarnall
