Brothers and Sisters,

As my first year comes to a close, I wanted to thank each and everyone of you for the support and generosity you have shown me and to the lodge. I also wanted to thank the Auxiliaries for the support that they are known for and greatly acclaimed for. Without out their generosity and support the Lodge itself would not be a great success. The Lodge has had our ups and downs but with the support of both the lodge members and the Auxiliaries we have overcome them. We have some exciting events coming up and wanted to invite each of you to the events. On September 14 we have been invited to the Battlefield Boogie Club at Shannon’s at the Hospitality House for a dance/buffet. There is a charge of $20 that includes the buffet and dancing. If any member wants to do a pre-view prior to the benefit just advise the door person that you are a member of the FOP and was invited to check out their benefits. Our First event is the Crab Feast and Chinese Auction that is Oct. 7, 2017. This event is free to members of Lodge 15 and a modest fee to members of the FOP outside of the area and a slightly more of a modest fee for non-members. We will have crabs, hamburgers and hot dogs, potato salad, macaroni salad, various sides, water, sodas, and beer. The Chinese auction is put on by the Auxiliaries and benefits The Scholarship fund. If anyone has any items that are in good condition and would like to donate it to the auction please bring to a lodge meeting or contact either myself (540-226-5323) or the President of the Auxiliaries Angie Theisen at (540-379-7131). On November 11 the Auxiliaries are holding a Craft/Vendor event. Anyone who wishes to participate please contact Angie Theisen at (540)-379-7131. We have the Christmas Parade on December 2th that we will have a float in. Any volunteers to help out decorating and/or being on the float would a great boast to the Lodge and for the event. Please contact me if anyone is interested in participating with the Christmas Parade. Any children who want to participate must have a parent/guardian present. On December 9th at 0645 we have the Cops and Kids event at Target in Central Park. Any law enforcement member whether a member or not is welcome. Please, if you come to wear a raid jacket or hat indicating what agency you work for. It is a great turnout of both children and law enforcement to include local, state, and federal. On the same night we have our second annual Christmas party at the lodge. All is welcome and is free. Children are welcome and encourage to attend . Expect more information from Lynn Hamilton in the near future. Please RSVP to either David Theisen at 540-226-5323 or to Angie Theisen at 540-379-7131 and advise of how many and the ages of the children to ensure Santa has a gift for them on that special night. To end the Year we will be having our First Annual New Year’s Party. Please RSVP to the same. This is of course Adults only. Please check your email for additional information. If you are not receiving emails please contact me and I will ensure you are added to the list.
