Just wanted to say a few words as we enter into a New Year and leave 2022 behind us. This past year has been the longest decade to ever have flown by ! We have seen many changes in our world and the way we live and do business has been effected, in my humble opinion, negatively. Seems as if everyday tasks have gotten more complicated and time consuming. 2022 was a bit of a turbulent year and required us all to be more diligent and creative in our everyday endeavors. Here at the lodge we have had many different kinds of challenges to overcome such as product acquisition, rising prices, and tax law and charitable gaming legislation and regulation.
I would very much like to take this time to say thank you to our staff, officers and members for banding together and working to make this lodge the best ever.
As few as our staff actually are, they have accomplished more than we could have expected from them. There was not a challenge that was too big or complicated. They met them all head on and got the job done with poise and strength not easily attainable. We have all worked together for many years and have become like one big happy family, you know what that means, not always agreeing or just plain out being a pain in the butt, just like my wife and kids and doggy. I still love them all, especially the doggy, and would not trade them for all the whiskey in Kentucky....
The members have stood by our side and sometimes with a little clarification understood the need for price increases and product changes as well. If it were not for all of you we would have no reason for being who and what we are.
Therefore, as we leave 2022 behind us we can reflect on our achievements and failures and look forward to the promise of a new year, a new beginning, and an opportunity to improve ourselves. Do not make resolutions that are not going to be kept; instead make a promise to focus on your values, self-esteem, and emotional well-being. So, once again I want to thank the employees (staff) of Lynchburg Lodge 715 for making us who we are today. You guys are the best !!
