January 15 was our annual Hoop Shoot free throw competition at the Warehouse Facility in Spokane.  We had a good turnout of volunteers to help with the event, and contestant numbers were up compared to last year.  Our three winners proceeded to the District competition in Moses Lake on January 27th, and all three advanced to the State Competition in Olympia.

As reported by Hoop Shoot Director Rita Gardner:
"Quinn Hadi, Georgia Biegel and Blake Zimmerman continued with their winning streaks and won their Division at the East District Hoop Shoot which was held in Moses Lake on Saturday, January 27th. These participants will move on to the Washington State Hoop Shoot which will be held at St. Martins University on February 10th. With the quality of their individual performances, I am hopeful that they will continue to advance on to Regionals and Nationals. Blake Zimmerman performed like a National competitor and completed 23 out of 25 in Spokane and 24 out of 25 in Moses Lake. Best of luck to all of the contestants at State and beyond!"

On December 6th we made our annual
bus trip to Lakeland Village to entertain the residents at their Christmas Party.  Our impromptu little 'pickup' band provided music while Santa handed out stockings filled with goodies like candy and cookies.

Thanks to Dennis Hurd, Memorial Day Services were held at the Spokane Memorial Gardens on May 29th.  We’ve done this service for many years and would love to have more members attend.

On April 7th the Lodge held a banquet to honor lodge members for their outstanding service and efforts on behalf of Lodge #228.  Each officer serving under ER Evette Wilie was awarded a certificate of appreciation with other awards such as Elk of the Year, Officer of the Year, and Outstanding Service Commendations also being presented.

Saint Patrick's Day was a fun time at the Lodge.  Thanks to a dedicated group of volunteers, a Corned Beef and Cabbage dinner followed by music from the Deep Creek Band, attracted a crowd of 80 to 90 people.  Some of the most active movers and shakers who made the event a success included Jan Lindsey, Lorrie Blake, Chuck Blake, Bim Lindsey, and Frank Powers.  Also, many thanks to the Deep Creek Band for providing the music.  Lodge members Dennis Hurd and Frank Powers are also members of the band.
There are too many other people who were crucial to the event to list here, and there's always the fear that we'll miss someone.  So, go to the link below to see photos of the event that will include most all the volunteers.
