California Odd Fellows and Rebekahs Annual Trip
January 2, 2016
Dear Odd Fellows and Rebekahs,
Every year the Grand Master and the Rebekah Assembly President host a “Grand Master/RA President Trip”. Traditionally, the trip has been a cruise to Mexico or Hawaii. However, in recent years, these trips have tended to be quite expensive and attendance has dropped to very few. And as you know, Donna and Dave are always willing to try new things. So, in 2016, the traditional trip will take a more unconventional path. Our goal is to make the trip both fun and affordable.
Please mark your calendars for the first Grand Master/RA President Wine Country Trip, which will take place on Saturday, March 26, 2016. This will be a day trip by luxury bus. The bus will pick up the Odd Fellows, Rebekahs and their guests (spouses and other adult guests are welcomed) at a park ‘n’ ride location in Davis at 10 a.m., travel to the Amador wine country, visit two excellent wineries for wine tasting (and wine purchases as you desire), stroll through a wine museum, enjoy a nice catered picnic lunch, and return to the park ‘n’ ride facility before 5 p.m. In addition, there will be snacks, water and juice available on the bus, and we will have a wine quiz during the trip up to Amador County with great prizes for the winners. We are striving to make this trip available and affordable to all, so the total cost of all the above is a remarkable $19 per person.
Space will be limited so we suggest that you get your RSVP in as soon as possible. Grand Marshal Nancy Johnson is collecting RSVP’s. Contact Nancy at email@example.com or (510) 673-3958 and RSVP by giving Nancy your name and the names of anyone in your party. Checks should be made payable to “Grand Lodge” and mailed to: Grand Lodge of California, Wine Country Trip, Attn: Nancy Johnson, 14414 Oak Street #B, Saratoga CA 95070.
See you on the Wine Country Trip!
