Brothers and Sisters in Columbianism,
first wish Happy Saint Joseph’s day to all our Italian brothers and sisters!
Don’t worry I haven’t forgotten our Irish brothers and sisters…Happy Saint
Patrick’s Day to all of you!!!
we will be doing something different for St. Patrick’s Day dinner. For this
year’s dinner we will be celebrating it on March 17th. This is the
same night as O.L.P.H.
Church Lenten mission. We
will attend the mission at 7:30pm and then celebrate St. Patrick’s Day dinner.
Tickets are $10 per person and they are on sale, please see an officer for
As we move
into the March and into our Lenten season let us reflect on this past year. Let
us reflect on where we have been and
where we are going. Most important is where we are going, and what roads we are
going to take to get us there. As we continue to move forward we need the help
of our membership to keep us going. Our membership is the life and blood of our
Order. Over the next couple of months we
are looking for help in many areas.
area is with Bingo, we need more help at 5:30pm for set up and selling the
bingo cards. We can also use the additional help during each set and clean up
at the end of the night. Right now bingo is going slow, we need bingo players!
If you know of anyone please send them to our bingo location. Bingo is held on
Thursday evenings from 7:30pm to 10:30pm, located in O.L.P.H. school Gymnasium.
area is fundraising, which is something we are lacking at this point. Yes, this
is difficult now with us not owning our own building that holds 300 people.
That should not matter because we still need to do the best we can to fundraise.
If any member has any ideas or would like to chair an event please see me.
area is membership, currently we have only brought in 8 new members since the
start of this Columbian year. This is not good since we are now in March with
that same number. We need to bring in new members to our Order. Membership is
what keeps our Order moving
forward and it’s our future. I am asking our membership take a form 100 and
bring in 1 new member during this month.
As you can
see we have many areas that need work, for us to continue to move forward we
need to build upon this areas. This is why we need your help with this.
I thank you for your support
and let us in Charity, Unity, and Fraternity move to a brighter future!
