Greeting Brothers and Sisters!

Hope you all had a wonderful Easter. I look forward to seeing everyone at our next meeting, which will be held on Wednesday, April 11th at the normal gathering place on Beulah Street at 7pm. The dinner menu will include pizza and Lou’s Famous Garden Salad. Complementary wine and desserts from members are always welcomed and appreciated.

Looking back on the prior month, March was a really successful time for the Lodge! Not only did we have a blast in AC and enjoy a really nice meal at Carmine’s, but we also netted $650 off of the trip. With the great success coming from our AC trip, we are planning more trips for the future.

Reminders: 1. Please make sure to get your membership dues in ASAP. Membership dues are $50 and can be directly mailed to me(see address below).

2. Comedy Night and Spaghetti Dinner will be held 6:30pm Saturday Night, April 14th at Vita Nuova Lodge in Westmont New Jersey. Please contact Victor if you are interested in going (contact info below).

3. Casino Trip to Harrah’s in Chester will be Sunday April 29th. The trip costs $40 with $20 in play money. While only being a stone’s throw away from Philly, Harrah’s Chester offers all the attractions of a Vegas Casino! Harrah’s has more than 2,000 slot machines, the largest collection of table games in the Philly/DE area and live horse racing. Harrah’s offers a wide variety of eating options as well, from cheesesteaks at Philly Steak Shack to more sit-down type of restaurants like Guy Fieri’s Kitchen and Bar. We are looking forward to an exciting trip and maybe Harrah’s could top the fun we had at the Tropicana!
