All members, who are able, should attend at least two meetings a year and this is one of them. The other is our Inspection in February. Our annual meeting and election of officers for the year 2019 will be held on Thursday, November 8. New Carlisle Lodge and New Carlisle Craft Club officers will be installed at this same meeting. Mark your calendar today and plan on attending this important meeting. Your lodge and lodge officers are looking forward to seeing you at our annual meeting.
Once again, we plan to set up a food booth in front of the Lodge this year. The booth will be setup on Friday Oct. 5 and Saturday Oct. 6. Every large undertaking requires strong support and participation, so I am asking for your help. Please check your schedules and allocate some of your time. Contact:
