Project: Raise funds for two entities operated to assist people in need.
1: The Delta Food Bank, managed and operated by volunteers. Last year IOOF Delta #116 donated to the Delta Food Bank, when I dropped off the check, their shelves were nearly empty. Their major source of supplies is the USPS food rive in the spring, which doesn't last long.
2. Wounded Warriors, a non-profit that assists our wounded veterans return to as normal a life as possible with their injuries. If your lodge wants to donate directly, you may do so but please advise the Grand Secretary of the amounts, so we can keep accurate records.
Dedication: I am dedicating my term as Grand Master to my family. Watching them meet life's challenges head on and persevering and growing. They are truly an inspiration. A special Thank You to my amazing wife Robin, she manages to take care of everything while I am gone and still have time to help all of our friends and family have a better life.
Thoughts: Humor truly is the best medicine. Even God has a sense of humor. Have you ever looked at a giraffe? If you ever need a good laugh, just look in the mirror. Just don't laugh too hard or long, save some humor for the rest of us.
"LAUGH AT ONESELF IS A TRUE SIGN OF A GREAT CHARACTER."
