Friends of the Consistory

The Friends of the Consistory meeting was held tonight at the Des Moines. Click on the Emblem to view the Slide Show On-line of all the pictures.

Members begin to gather for the wine and cheese tasting and social hour.
A variety of cheese and crackers for your sampling pleasure/
Members enjoy each other's company and good conversation.
An absolutely wonderful meal. Notice the mound of shrimp in the middle of the back. No one went home hungry.

Entertainment was just right. Not too obtrusive and gave a great background.
Shane gave a report about the 2007 activities that had been accomplished. A general clean-up of the building makes it look fresh and new. The carpet which was financed with a lot of $50. donations. New Thermostats and other equipment which I did not get written down were installed at a cost of $10,000. They have already saved the Consistory $8,000 in heating bills.

Projects planned for the coming year were also outlined including air conditioning for the Tapestry lounge and small lodge room and other projects around the building including the women's restroom. There are two challenge grants from Brothers who will provide funds if a certain amount of dontaions are reached.
And of course we had an opportunity to donate funds before we went home. If you would like to donate the address is at the top of the blog.

A wonderful evening with a chance to socialize and visit with friends. Another successful Consistory Event.
