District 4780 Update – June 1st by PER Luby

Monday May 17th the lodge was visited by John Israel (District V.P., St. Charles #690), Dave Lafeber (State Marshall, Florissant #2316), & Greg Peterson (District Director, Manchester 2058). At 5:00pm before the lodge meeting John Israel conducted the Spring V.P. visit
when we discussed charitable contributions, National Foundation, officer training, youth programs (such as our hoop shoot and student of the month program), our October Drug Awareness Program Truck or Treat event, Veterans committee, our All American Lodge pursuit, leadership, and volunteering. The heavies were impressed as this isn’t a Lodge but a red white and blue Flag Loving American rocket ship propelling to the moon.
