Message From the State President

This past month I attended a beautiful 100th anniversary celebration of the Eureka Lodge at the Wharfinger Building in Eureka, CA with Past State President Vera Girolami.   It was a long rainy ride up and back but well worth the trip  It was an honor to meet and sit with Eureka Mayor Kim Bergel.  A beautiful invocation was given by Fr. Mike Cloney.

Honored guests and congratulations were given to Betty and Gene Senestrano.

I presented certificates from both the Grand Lodge and National Lodge for the special anniversary.

Special certificates and pins from the Grand Lodge were awarded to the following members:  25 year Members Lorene Luster,

All lodges …    

Please send your event flyers to the IL Leone email address we want to include them in the following months issue. It’s a great way to let your brothers and sisters at neighboring lodges know about your events so they can attend and support your Lodge.  The deadline is the 15th of each month, 

Send your articles and event flyers to: illeone.ca@gmail.com

Our goal is to ensure that your IL Leone is in your mailbox on or before the 1st of every month.
