As I write this, I am sitting on our back porch in the company of my husband, enjoying an evening of cooler June air, and awaiting the fruits of his grilling talents. The wind chimes produce a gentle melody, and the Moody Blues play in the background. It's truly lovely - it's moments like these that make the daily grind worthwhile.

Tomorrow will be a full day, beginning with lodge members leading the Pledge and manning the booth at the V.A. Music Festival in our support of Veterans, while a few others converge at the lodge kitchen to prepare for our monthly dinner. Many of the same people who were at the Festival will also come help with the dinner.

Lincoln Lodge 80 has a long and proud history in the Lincoln community. Our hallmark is seen in such long-enduring Lincoln institutions as the Children's Christmas Party (#110 this December) and Midget Football.

The emblem of the station of the Exalted Ruler is Fidelity. Fidelity is defined as, "faithfulness to a person, cause, or belief, demonstrated by continuing loyalty and support."

There are many upcoming activities that need your support. Take note of the monthly dinners - your attendance helps to support the club. The Memorial Stadium concessions stand that we staff, alongside the Does, also helps to support lodge activities, and we need volunteers to work each home game. Teenagers 16 and older are also welcome to help.

Your lodge needs your participation and support to stay strong and vibrant. Hope to see you around the lodge and at other activities. Wishing you a safe and patriotic Independence Day!

Laurie Montag, Exalted Ruler
