FROM NOBLE TERRY GRIFFITH
2016 Bend Christmas Parade
The Bend Christmas Parade will be on Saturday December 3rd at 12:00 noon. Call Terry (503-910-2162) for time and place for meeting. The theme is “All I Want for Christmas”. For our float, we have transformed the back of the Fez trailer into the Shriners Hospital, complete with decorations and windows with our local Shriner patients waving. It is important that COSC stay in front of our community and everyone see that we are here. We will also be advertising the Shriners Run For A Child, with several people walking alongside the float with Run Shirts on. If you would like to walk with us, let me know. (Due to the possibility of slick streets, we will not have the carts this year.)
2017 Installation of Officers
On December 6th, we will be installing our 2017 officers. Al Kader Director Terry Griffith and Outer Guard Bill Quier will be the installing officers. This is an important time for our Club and a great opportunity to support our new officers.
