Hello everyone, February was a slow month for visitations. I did attend District # 3 meeting On February 19, 2023. The Meeting was held at Elwood City Aerie # 1246. Its was a very good meeting with a lot of great ideas to get members into the Aeries. Thank You Elwood City Aerie # 1246 for hosting the District meeting. I am looking forward to March as it will be a busy month for visitations. I would like to thank everyone for all the donations to my charity. • Five points for Membership. • 1. Make it easy to get involved ... • 2. Use social media to recruit new members • 3. Keep your current members informed about Aerie activities ... • 4.

It's been a slow month on visiting everyone, Clint and I miss all of you. On February 4th, 2023 Clearfield Aerie and Auxiliary held a benefit for Robin Lumadue. Pa. PMSP Ruthie Jordan and I was met by Pa. PSP/ State Sec. Dwaine Shupe and Pa. PMSP Chris Shupe. The Aerie was packed. The Aerie donated and cooked grilled chicken, the Auxiliary made the macaroni salad, baked beans, and desert. The meal was delicious. There was a lot of Chinese raffle baskets and tickets being sold. When it was all done and over with, the benefit was very successful. All donations went to Robin. We met a lot of Robins family and friends. Great job Clearfield. Our prayers are with you Robin. Pa.
