O-Shot-Caw Lodge 265

April – Paldani

Dear Brothers,

There is so much to talk about, first letΓÇÖs start with good evening to you all. Really I have only two things tonight, but one is a once in a life time event, and that was our 2016 Section Conference. You all saw the shows that Paldani put on for the conference, so I wonΓÇÖt bother wasting my breath on that. I would like to just thank the key people around this room that helped put on the shows and the people you didnΓÇÖt see behind the scenes. Mr. Kudja, Ivan Lopez, Mr. Brown, Mr. Kerr, and the list goes on and on. Then you all saw the actors right, well, what you didnΓÇÖt see was the countless hours of service (at least 50) each member contributed before the conference. And thatΓÇÖs not even including all the other meetings, the 50 hours was just in the 2 weeks before the conference. ItΓÇÖs because of them and the other Paldani chapter members, which came last minute to help out, that really pulled the show together and brought it into fruition, so letΓÇÖs give them a big round of applause. Also on behalf of the Paldani chapter I would like to thank Brad and Will for their unmitigated support, not only for the conference, but for every subcommittee that was involved. Finally, in our last Chapter meeting, we had over 50 members in attendance, and we conducted Chapter officer nominations. Thank you Mr. Gilliland and South Florida Council for our pizza party, which we earned by having the most registered attendees at the Lodge Banquet.

Yours in Brotherhood,

Arturo F.
