I hope that everyone had a safe and very fun summer. I also hope that everyone made it through all of the heat and dryness in one piece. Look on the bright side: If your lawn is dried up and brown, at least you donít have to cut it.
Now there are some of you out there who think that once July comes around, the Lodge goes inactive. Nothing is farther from the truth. Itís true there are no stated or extra meetings, but that is all that stops in the summer. The Officers still met on Tuesdays to plan activities for the fall and to work on degrees. Also, we had our annual Family Picnic and our annual Pirate Baseball game night. And last but certainlt not least, we took a trip to Toronto Ontario to see the Phantom of the Opera. Once again, Corinthian Lodge is full of activity and excitement all year round.
In my last letter to you (June) I congratulated Brother Rich Phillips on all of his hard work and effort learning the degree work. In this letter, I would like to mention Brother Mike Mammay. So far this summer, Mike is giving Rich a run for his money in learning the degree work. Mike already knows the short 1st and 2nd degrees, and is diligently learning the long 1st.Be sure to watch Brother Mike confer his first degrees this month. He is doing a wonderful job.
I would also like to thank everyone who helped out at the summer functions by assisting with the work and helping to clean up, especially brother Dan Bigley. The Officers really appreciate your help.
