Nobles and Ladies,

Fall is here; it is my favorite time of year. Cool-weather, get out the jackets, leaves turning, hog roasts, bonfires, apple butter, I can keep going. I hope everyone will have the opportunity to get out and enjoy the season as much as I do.

Sportsmen’s Extravaganza is in the final stretch. According to Dean, we are almost in the black, and every ticket sold aids in supporting Moolah and your Unit or Club. Be sure to have tickets with you as you make your autumn travels.

Robby is working hard to get the Feztival of Trees organized. Now is the time to submit your entry form and start working on outfitting your trees.

With the weather changing, I will hold another Scotch, Bourbon, and Cigar Night on October 17th. Sorry for the short notice. Everyone had such a good time at the last event; I thought it would be great to repeat. It may be an excellent night to light up a few fire pits.

I am working on another zero-cost event for November. I have a couple of ideas, so keep an eye out.

Please get out, be safe, and enjoy the season before old man winter sits down to finish the year. Please take a few minutes to reflect on why we are Shiners. Helping one child may not change the world, however, helping one child will change the world for that child.


Ill. Sir Russell Georgen
