April - Paldani

Dear Brothers,

There is so much to talk about, first let’s start with good evening to you all. Really I have only two things tonight, but one is a once in a life time event, and that was our 2016 Section Conference. You all saw the shows that Paldani put on for the conference, so I won’t bother wasting my breath on that. I would like to just thank the key people around this room that helped put on the shows and the people you didn’t see behind the scenes. Mr. Kudja, Ivan Lopez, Mr. Brown, Mr. Kerr, and the list goes on and on. Then you all saw the actors right, well, what you didn’t see was the countless hours of service (at least 50) each member contributed before the conference. And that’s not even including all the other meetings, the 50 hours was just in the 2 weeks before the conference. It’s because of them and the other Paldani chapter members, which came last minute to help out, that really pulled the show together and brought it into fruition, so let’s give them a big round of applause. Also on behalf of the Paldani chapter I would like to thank Brad and Will for their unmitigated support, not only for the conference, but for every subcommittee that was involved. Finally, in our last Chapter meeting, we had over 50 members in attendance, and we conducted Chapter officer nominations. Thank you Mr. Gilliland and South Florida Council for our pizza party, which we earned by having the most registered attendees at the Lodge Banquet.

 

Yours in Brotherhood,

Arturo F.

Dear Brothers,

We have recently publicized CGAF, The OA Indian village at Lincoln Marti and scoutmasters, and the camp Elmore work days. We just had our chapter fellowship on the February 8th at golden corral where more than 60 people showed up. For section conference we are having meetings every Tuesday and in a week or two we may even move to camp Elmore tostart practicing as soon as the lights are up and running. Which also we have confirmed that at least 19 members will be out there on Saturday during some time in the day. Finally coming up is Paldani-o-thon which is our annual day of service which is how we raise funds for the various fundsthat the O-Shot-Caw Lodge endorses. This event will be held 2/26 from 7:00 P.M. – 7:00 A.M. at the west Broward Masonic Lodge.

January - Paldani

Dear Brothers,

There has been another exiting month since we last met. We just had our chapter meeting this Monday where we collected Stuffed animals for the SFC Teddy Bear Drive. We got our two elangomats and brotherhood testers for Winter Ordeal. Talked about out Callout Ceremony that is this Friday at 7:30 near the West Broward Masonic Lodge. We madechapter chockers in our colors to promote American Indian Culture. We were also honored to have Mr. Gilliland attend his home chapters meeting. As for Section conference planning we are having a 5 hour meeting December 20th to finalize the script and watch an inspirational movie. I have with me some flyers on Paldani-O-Thon and an email is being sent over break regarding it. For those of you who don’t know what Paldani-O-Thon is it is Paladin’s one day of service..

 

Yours in Brotherhood,

November - Paldani

Dear Brothers,

 

I am happy to report that the Paldani chapter has been very busy since we last met. We staffed the kitchen for fall ordeal happily serving the lodge and feeding everybody. We just held our chapter meeting this past Monday where we talked mostly about Haunted Forest and our ideas for ourbunny trail. In addition we had the individual dance team come out and givea presentation, thank you Jake, Jacob, and Mr. Cairo. We also appointed the unit elections and OA rep chairmen for the chapter. We are have started to call all the units in our district to schedule unit elections. I spoke to the unit leaders at roundtable last week when I was selling haunted forest tickets. In addition we just had secretary elections and I am proud to announce that Jake Lopez is the new Paldani secretary. On a separate note, as we are in charge of the section conference gatherings, we have had a couple of committee meetings where we have almost completely solidified the storyline in great detail for Friday night and the 2 pre-shows. In the coming month I will get with Preston to give him the service hours we have done thus far as a chapter. Last but not least, we are also still discussing ideas for what Paldani will do for the fun zone idea that was presented to the LEC butsome ideas include: ping pong, an obstacle course, and tetherball.

 

Yours in Brotherhood,
