Greeting Brethren from the East, 

Since 2012, I have hosted Pre-Saint Patrick’s Day events inviting the Chamber of Commerce, Rotary, and Masons together for a night of community building and camaraderie.  Every year the event has grown. The last few years we have barbequed over 70 pounds of corned beef and have overflowed the room within my office. 

This year Fernley Masonic Lodge #34 is going to take over the event as a fund raiser to benefit our local OES chapter's backpack program. The event is on Friday, March 10th, 2023, starting at 5:30 (the day after our stated meeting).
Our Brothers and the community are invited to join us for a wonderful Pre-Saint Patrick's Day Dinner with all the trimmings for a suggested donation of $10.  We will provide everything needed for a great time with the exception of desserts and alcohol (though we are always happy to see such things if they should show up ;) 

I am hoping that my 11th Annual Pre-Saint Patrick's Day party can kick off a new tradition for the Lodge and raise some money. I look forward to seeing you there.
