Greetings Brethren,

We had another successful L­adies at the Table. Ken Gorgen, PM. lead the kitchen crew consisting of Mike Gorgen, PM., Brian Brietzmann PM, Jeff Stark and Andy Meyers. The tables were set up by Connie Jaremko, Amy Gorgen with the assistance of Madelyn and Elsie. Jeff Stark pulled double duty as server along with Micah Anderson, Rob Beyer and Dan Richardson. Andy Meyer also, pulled double duty as a wine steward along with Chris Goodwin and James Lovett, PM. The cleanup crew consisted of Sherri Goodwin, Jeanie Goodwin, Winnie Moore, the Beyers, the Andersons, and James Lovett, PM. and his friends.

I want to thank everyone that came out and made this evening a huge success.

The installation of officers for next year will be held on December 1st and 2:00pm. Please come out and support our new line.

The first stated meeting in December we will have a very special guest, Santa Clause. Come on out and enjoy a ham dinner with the lodge.

As this year closes, I would like to thank all those who have stepped up and help the lodge. We have some work heading into next year. We need a fund raising committee and a visiting care committee to assist our brethren. Please get a hold of me with your thoughts and ideas.

My wife Connie belongs to P.E.O. (Philanthropic Educational Organization), one of their newest members is the director of the Waukesha Food Pantry. The day that our food arrived from our fish fry the Food Pantry was down to the bare bones. Please continue to help support the food pantry by bringing a nonperishable item every time you come to McKinley.
