September is upon us and the days will start to become cooler. We getting the lodge ready for the colder months. As many of you know we are still on the look out for a good plow truck. If you know of one please let Mickey know. Time is running out.
This month’s Grizzly Weekend will be a teddy bear round up. We are collecting teddy bears for a local hospital. Please bring one in and get money off your entry.
The 15th we are raising money for The Waterville Humane Society. They are in danger of closing. Let’s see what we can do to help our local shelter stay open. We will be having raffles and 50/50 tickets to go to this worthy cause.
Common Ground Fair in Unity will begin the 21st. I have included a link to the fair calendar. We will be running a promotion that weekend for fair goers.
While cleaning up outside we are noticing that cigarette butts have been deposited on the grounds. We want to emphasize again that we have a butt can by the back door in the designated smoking area. That is the only designated spot for smoking or your vehicle. If caught disposing of cigarette butts on the ground improperly you may be asked to leave and forfeit membership. Thank you for helping to protect our wildlife, our members, and our property.
If you would like to volunteer time to work off your day pass or stay. See Mickey for details. There are always jobs for you to do.
We are also looking a forming a Frat Friday Planning Committee. See me for details. Frat Friday is not cancelled, it Just being reworked. So help us make it what you want it to be.
This is going to be another great month at the lodge for us. Friendships will continue to grow and we will make new memories around the fire.
I think that’s all for now
See you around the lodge!
August is upon us once again. We have some great events planned for you this month. I am hoping you all come out to see us. Soak up the sunshine while you can. Summer is only for a few more weeks.
We would also like to remind you that Labor Day Weekend is coming up. If you want a cabin or room make your reservation now. Other popular weekends also have limited availability. Going to a local fair? Choose us as your home base. Speaking of fairs, Common Ground Fair will be from September 21-September 23 this year. So start planning now to reserve.
We would like to thank Michael for all of the hard work he has put in over the years making Frat Friday what it is. He will be taking a break from planning. If you would like to help plan Frat Fridays let me know. We can always use your help.
Want to work off your day pass? See Mickey for other tasks that need to be done around the lodge.
Thanks Ray for the new pool table! We will be continuing our pool tournaments to help pay back the loan. Consider joining one on any Saturday. You don’t have to be an expert and it really it lots of fun.
I think that’s all for now
See you around the lodge!
