St. Albans Council
St. Albans Council
St. Albans Council #123 has traditionally closed the meeting hall during the winter months to save expenses and potential water freezing. During these months, dispensation is obtained from the State Councilor to hold meetings once per month instead of twice, particularly since the second meeting of the month usually occurs on or near a holiday.
February 8, 2024 is our final "Informal Dinner Meeting" for the winter. The dinner meeting will take place at Tammy's Restaurant on US 817 starting at 5:30 PM. Tammy's Thursday special is Chicken and Dumplings.
Our theme for the meeting tonight is "Happy Birthday Wishes". Council #123 was born on February 16th, 1916. Come and join us in wishing our Council a Happy Birthday!
We will resume regular meeting at our Lodge Hall in March. The regular meetings are on the second and forth Thursday of each month starting at 7:00PM.
Council #123 had a wonderful meeting on June 8.
Three new members were inducted.
Cynthia Hale, Randy Rhodes, and Theresa Gibson took their obligations. We are delighted to have these three.
This being the first time we have conducted inductions in quite some time, it was a delightful experience for all present. Though embarrassingly rusty, we managed to get through the process and there was a lot of laughter and well taught messages.
Fidelity Councils Councilor David Dolin assisted with the induction activity, Thank You Brother David!
Information was shared regarding the State Session for August 10, 11, and 12,
Our charter was undraped after a month in memory of Brother Charles Henley, our only Life Member.
We have a few items available to show support of our council. Available while supplies last.
