The excitement and celebration of
our Lodge’s 75th anniversary are a
memory now, but a word of thanks to
all who came to help us celebrate is
certainly in order. More than 750 were
in attendance for the two days’
celebration, and many who had not
been to their lodge home in many,
many years found old friendships
renewed, and the sense of togetherness
was good to feel.
It was a joy to pian for this
celebration -- we had 23 volunteer
members on the committee, and all
were responsible for the hard work and
preparations that went on behind the
scenes. The souvenir program listed
each of their names in a particular

that all, at one time or another,
stepped in to help out wherever there
was a need. Their names are:
- Albert and Helen Kubala, Mike
Youth Program ~ Gordon and
