Hello Brothers,

There will be air conditioned seating in the Lodge Hall as well as tables outside with cover if you want to be out in the sun and breeze and enjoy the weather. 

The barbeque picnic will start around noon and run into the evening. The Lodge and Fellowcraft Club will be supplying hot dogs, hamburgers, chicken, potato salad, macaroni salad, soda, water, ice, buns and condiments. We would appreciate if each of you brings your own pot luck item, such as side dishes to go with the barbecue foods the Lodge and Fellowcraft Club are providing. We would also appreciate any dessert items. BYOB of choice as well. Lastly, playing cards, cornhole and other games are welcome if you have them.

Brothers of Annawon Lodge and their immediate families are welcome, as are all appendant and concordant bodies of Annawon Lodge. Please spread the word.

It will help if we have a headcount, so please call Fellowcraft Club President Joey McVety at (203) 627-7262 or Fellowcraft Club Vice President Dennis Frosolone at (203) 233-2328 with your reservations.

Thanks you Brothers. We look forward to seeing many of you on the 14th!

LAST CALL- Souper Bowl Charity Bowling Tournament-This Sunday 6/26/22- 1:00 p.m.-4:00 p.m.  on 06/22/2022

Brothers All,

The Annawon Fellowcraft Club reminds you of our annual "Souper Bowl" duckpin bowling fundraiser to benefit the West Haven Project Hope Soup Kitchen this Sunday June 26th 2022 at 1pm. The cost of the event is $25. Brothers are encouraged to get their friends and family members to participate by either bowling or pledging a donation. The donation options are either a flat rate donation or they can pledge a per pin donation based on your total score for both games i.e. if you bowl a 120 on the first game and a 99 on your second game your total score would be 219 and if they pledge $1 per point they would donate $219.00 they can pledge any amount they want per pin  We just used $1 as an example to keep the math easy.  We have attached the flyer for this event along with a sponsor signup sheet.

We have room for 60 bowlers- 5 per team/lane. If you don't have a team of 5 don't worry you will be paired up with others. Please remember there will be pitchers of soda and water and pizza will be supplied for all bowlers and sponsors. We will bowl one game, take a break for pizza and drinks, and then bowl our second game. We will likely start bowling by 1:15 p.m. (after another party finishes bowling) and be done shortly after 4:00 p.m., so there will still be plenty of daylight hours to enjoy after an enjoyable afternoon of bowling for charity with your friends and family.

Please RSVP to Joey or Dennis by Friday 6/24/22. Help us fill all 12 bowling lanes, which will in turn help the soup kitchen feed many of the needy in West Haven.
 
See you Sunday!
 
Fraternally,
