Thanksgiving

We met at the Lodge on Saturday November 17, 2012 for a wonderful meal in honor of the Thanksgiving Tradition. We had a great time visiting with family and friends and gave thanks for the many blessings that each of us share this holiday season.

Below are a few photos from the dinner along with the original Thanksgiving proclamation given by brother George Washington 223 years ago.

 

THANKSGIVING DAY 1789
BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA – A PROCLAMATION

Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor – and Whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me “to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.”

Now therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday the 26th day of November next to be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be – That we may then all unite in rendering unto him our sincere and humble thanks – for his kind care and protection of the People of this country previous to their becoming a Nation – for the signal and manifold mercies, and the favorable interpositions of his providence, which we experienced in the course and conclusion of the late war –for the great degree of tranquillity, union, and plenty, which we have since enjoyed – for the peaceable and rational manner in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national One now lately instituted, for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed, and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and in general for all the great and various favors which he hath been pleased to confer upon us.

And also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech him to pardon our national and other transgressions – to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually – to render our national government a blessing to all the People, by constantly being a government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed – to protect and guide all Sovereigns and Nations (especially such as have shewn kindness unto us) and to bless them with good government, peace, and concord – To promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the increase of science among them and Us – and generally to grant unto all mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as he alone knows to be best.

Given under my hand at the City of New York the third day of October in the year of our Lord 1789.

Golf Sponsorship Form

This golf scramble will help raise funds to conduct the 8th annual Race For the Children. We have various sponsorship packages to accommodate every budget. We would sincerely appreciate the assistance of the brethren in obtaining sponsors for the Scramble. Please promote the Platinum, Gold, and Hole sponsorships which all come with free teams in the scramble before you solicit teams to play in the tournament. We believe we can fill all the team slots reasonably easy, so it is important we attempt to raise as much money as possible for the race and our charities first.

We need 10-15 brothers to help put on the scramble. If you want to help us work the course on the day of the scramble please contact one of the Race Committee Members. (Bob Lenert, Kacy McCarroll, Jerry Pate, Fred Rister, or Dollar Logsdon) You can contact any of these brothers through the Race For The Children website.

We hope you will join us for some fun in the sun and make this year a great success for our charities.
