Dear Dedicated Members for Change,
WE ARE LOOKING FOR A FEW GOOD MEN AND WOMEN AND LODGES.
California Grand Lodge Sessions are coming up in less than four months – on May 17-20. This year we will be at a new venue in Visalia. As we have done for the past five years, Dedicated Members for Change (DMC) will once again be hosting and organizing a social event for Thursday evening at the Grand Lodge Hotel (the Visalia Marriott), open to all Grand Lodge and Rebekah Assembly representatives, and all Odd Fellows, Rebekahs and guests who wish to attend. We are calling the event “Friendship Night” and it will run from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. The event will feature live music, a no-host bar, an all-you-can-eat Taco Bar with all the fixings, a few brief comments by leaders of our Order, and a great time to socialize and relax. The cost to attend the event will be a very low $10 to $15 per person. The final price per person will be determined based on the number of sponsorships we receive. Because it is subsidized by sponsorships, the price we will charge per person will be much less than the actual cost of the event.
This e-mail is sent to request sponsorships for Friendship Night. We are asking Lodges that wish to be listed as Sponsors for donations of $250 or $500. We are asking members who wish to sponsor for donations of $100 or $200. All Sponsors will be identified and thanked by name (unless you wish to remain anonymous).
Who wishes to be a Sponsor? Please let me know.
All sponsorship checks should be made payable to “Grand Lodge”. The memo section of the check should state “DMC event”. Please send all sponsorship checks to me, so I can account for them and make sure you are recognized for your support, and I will turn them over to Grand Treasurer Jay Johnson. Mail your checks to:
Dave Rosenberg, PGM
Odd Fellows Lodge
415 2nd Street
Davis CA 95616
And thank you for considering this request.
