March Message - 2013

Greeting Brothers and friends,

There were ten of us that braved the weather for the Chili dinner before the first stated meeting in February. There was a lot of good comrade that night. Getting out of the lodge parking lot proved to be challenge for some of us, but the brothers pitched in and made sure everyone was able to get out of the parking lot and back on to Pilgrim Parkway.

I just finished filling out the Lodge Excellence Award for last year. The highlight of filling the form out was realizing that we raised five new master masons. That is great tribute to the diligence of the lodge members. I would like to thank you for your dedication and making “Thursday Tux Night” a huge success.

We had to cancel the dinner for March. We still plan on having a dinner in April. If you are interested in helping out on a dinner, please let me know.

The World Famous McKinley Lodge Fish Fry is on Friday March 22nd. There was a minor price increase over last year. We are still accepting food donations to the Waukesha Food Pantry. As always we need assistance with ticket sellers, servers, clean up, and of course dish washers. The fish fry goes from 5-7 and then it usually takes about two hours to clean up. The ticket sales and servers will run in two shifts 5-6 and 6-7. This year we are going to try a drive thru!! It actually will be a drive around with one person station under the canopy and another brother delivering food to the kitchen door behind the lodge. Please come out and support the lodge. THANK YOU


Todd Jaremko
