Another year has come and gone. It has been interesting to say the least. We started out with the renovation of the social quarters. Turned out pretty nice. Then we had a visit from the local SWAT team; that was interesting but everything should be settled in the next few weeks.
We then teamed up with the American Legion, VFW to put on a very successful benefit. It was a real joy to see the three working together for a common cause. The year ended with on of Heidi's Christmas Parties for the kids and as always she did a great job with over seventy kids in attendance. Giver her a big thank you.
As always a new year brings new challenges. We have not forgotten about our renovation and hope to get into the planning stages soon. It is also time to start thinking about elections; it seems early but the process will start toward the end of February. Anyone that might be interested can get with Bruce Pfarr or myself. We can tell you what is involved.
A shout out to the Moose Riders, after struggling for a few years to get it started, we now have 42 members. The sole purpose of the Riders is charity. State wise Moose Riders raise about $100,000 per year.
In closing I wish every one a very happy and prosperous new year. Remember let us go forward with good words, good thoughts and good deeds for all mankind.
