Men's Meeting: 1st & 3rd Tuesday at 8:00pm
Women's Meeting: 1st & 3rd Wednesday at 7:00pm
We’ve been getting very good turnouts at our recent Aerie events, probably because the weather has improved and people want to become more active. One such successful event was on Sunday, March 15th, when we had a Chili Cook-Off. We had 12 entries in this event and all were delicious (I know because I sampled all 12). Our panel of seven judges came up with these winners: First place, Victor Snell; second place, Chico Brust; third place, our five gourmet chefs:
Jeff Thorne, Rory Cash, Greg Sheaves, Scott Hanger and Gary Killingsworth. More importantly, we collected $630.00 for charity. We decided that we would donate the money to the Art Ehrmann Cancer Fund in memory of J. J. Cason, a member who recently passed away but had requested any donations be sent to this Grand Aerie organization. Thanks to those members who organized as well as those who generously donated to this worthy cause and to our talented DJ, Kenny Conner.
We have some important events in April: On Saturday, April 18th, we will celebrate our 111th Anniversary which kicks off at 5:30 PM. On Wednesday, the 29th, we have a meeting at 6:30 PM for the Delegates who will attend the State Convention in Fredericksburg on June 25-27. Dates to remember in May are the 16th, when we will host the State Conference, the 24th will be our Cash Bash and May 27th will be our Installation of Officers. Please attend Aerie meetings on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays.
