Welcome back! After taking off the month of July, we are meeting again.

Our monthly general meeting will be on the 18th of August at 6:30pm.  We will be serving fish, mac and cheese, cole slaw and corn bread. Hmmmmm delicious!  Anyone who would like to come in and help with the meal or the hall setup, please come in forty five minutes to an hour early. Anyone who would like to bring in an extra dessert, please free to do so.  It is all appreciated.

Happy Birthday

Our birthday girls and boy this month are Mark Gregorio (5th), Cheryl Callavini (12th) and Gloria Wnorowski (25th).


                         OSIA Baseball

Some of our members responded to my email concerning our group attendance at a Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp baseball game. The consensus indicated that we should attend the game on Sunday evening August 19th. The first pitch will be thrown at 6:05pm.

I have the names of those most interested in attending. For those of you reconsidering attending the event, there will be a sign up sheet on the officer's table at our general meeting. We will be sitting in the preferred seating. The ticket cost is nine dollars if purchased on line at the Jumbo Shrimp website or eleven dollars at the ballpark.


For our members who receive the St. Augustine Catholic magazine, you will notice an article on page 12 titled “The Beauty of a Sacramental Marriage”. One of the Catholic families interviewed for the article is the Holzbaur family. The family picture of the Holzbaurs on page 15 prominently features daughter Meaghan, a University of Notre Dame undergraduate student and our 2017 OSIA scholarship recipient.


Restaurant Night

After a long hiatus, we have scheduled a restaurant night for our lodge. We will meet on Thursday August 30, 6:30pm at the Sakura Buffet, 9764 Atlantic Blvd Jacksonville 32225. I believe most of us know the location, since it seems to be a popular destination for many of our members.
