It’s that tIme of year aGaIn when we are GearInG up for our super 50/50 raffle which is our Veterans Committee's biggest fundraiser. Every year we seem like we are pulled in all directions in supporting all venues of Veteran needs and military support so please buy your book of tickets or buy several books. Whatever is asked of us we wish to continue our support. Especially with all the budget cuts they really appreciate our valuable support.

I want to thank those who came out to march in the Memorial Day parade here on Arnold Ave. and yes, they call it a bicycle parade but serIousLy we know it’s a Memorial Day Parade. Congratulation to Gus Adamo on being the Grand Marshal for the parade. Our lodge is presenting a wreath in honor of our fallen Soldiers. As we Celebrate Memorial Day take a moment to remember those who gave their ultimate sacrifice for us. God Bless them all.
