Dear Dedicated Members for Change,
It’s almost that time.
Believe it or not, the annual Grand Lodge and Rebekah Assembly Sessions is coming up in just three months – May 15-18 in Visalia. A fair amount of business will be transacted, elections will be held, appointments will be made, acquaintances will be renewed, and there may even be some time for a bit of fun. And one of those fun activities will be the annual DMC Thursday Evening event. Please mark your calendars. That evening will be Thursday, May 16 at the Convention Center next to the Visalia Marriott Hotel. Details regarding the menu, the specific room location at the Convention Center and start time will be announced in the coming weeks. I can tell you that there will be a sumptuous display of good eats, a no-host bar, and lots of live entertainment. It’s the place to be on Thursday evening.
We keep the price tag on this event quite low because a number of generous Lodges contribute money as Sponsors of the event. Because of their sponsorship the expenses are subsidized and the cost to individual Odd Fellows, Rebekahs and their guests is reduced. The actual “admission fee” will be announced in the next few weeks as soon as we determine how much the sponsoring Lodges have contributed – but our plan is to keep it very, very low.
If YOUR Lodge wishes to be listed and recognized as a Sponsor of this fun event, and help reduce the cost for your brothers and sisters, please let me know in response to this e-mail. And mail your Lodge’s sponsorship check, payable to “Grand Lodge of California” to:
Dave Rosenberg, PGM
Odd Fellows Lodge
415 2nd Street
Davis CA 95616
Also, we wish to feature the musical talents of our members during the Thursday DMC evening. So if YOU wish to provide some musical entertainment during the event (either on your own or with your band-mates, please let me know!
We welcome the sponsorship of your Lodge, and the musical talents of members.
