Egg Nog Party - A Lodge
The Officers hosted Egg Nog Party schedule for December 21st is
“For the Members”.
Last year, we had to do a little “education” to our newer
members what this function was: Free snacks and Egg Nog…while it
lasts. Boy, do you guys turn out. That is what it
is for. Sort of a “member appreciation” along with
cranking up a little “Holiday Spirit”.
We’ve made arrangement to have more food and will have that
wonderful Egg Nog.
Come on out and enjoy the evening with us.

T or C
Veteran’s Christmas Fund Drive ‘HURTING”
Last month, we said the T or C Veteran’s Home Christmas Fund
Drive was “struggling”. Now, we are declaring “Def
Com 1”…We are in “Crisis Mode”.
Never, in the past 10 years, have we not collected $5,000. But it looks
like this is the year we won’t. We only have collected $3,106 (As
of November 15th) which means we won’t be able to do for the
Veterans at the T or C Home what we have been able to do in the past.
Many new members don’t know what this fund drive is. Briefly,
there are about 110 veterans, most all alone, who spend the remaining
years of their lives in the Truth or Consequences Veteran’s Home.
This is our oldest lodge charity program. Other charity programs
come and gone but this one remains because of your generosity.
