Congratulations to FCSLA's newest branch S-629 in Sandusky, MI! On June 5th they became official with a dinner held at Woodland Hills Golf Club &
For those of you who are unfamiliar Sandusky,
Mi is about 2 hour drive north of Detroit, MI and approximately a 5
hour drive from Cleveland, OH. After checking into flights I decided
I could get there faster by car. I would not have to deal with TSA,
layovers and changing planes.
am so glad I decided to drive. I took my mom, Barb Shedlock (who also
works at the home office as the receptionist) along with me. She kept
me company along with my lady Garmin, who only "re-calculated" a
few times along the way. We enjoyed the sights as we drove through
some small very quaint towns that are well maintained, have adorable
houses with lots of flowers and beautiful yards, horses, cows and
arrived at the Woodland Hills Golf Club to set up and were greeted by
Jessica & Lucy. They were absolutely awesome to work with!
by one members arrived, as did one of the new branch officers
Coleen Tyack (unfortunately Denise Strong had an emergency and could
not attend). Two out of the three hard working agents who made the
opening of this new branch possible Jerry Hillaker & Todd
Porrett (Harry Krul was unable to attend) were also in attendance. I
was able to meet each and every one that came to the dinner!
Considering my mom and I are Indians fans and we were in Tiger
country, they were all very friendly, happy and excited to be part of
the branch opening celebration.
evening began with prayer, followed by dinner and a fun yet
informative presentation including a short video about "what is a
fraternal benefit society" and a Power Point video showing FCSLA's Vision & Mission, photos and facts to help the branch begin their
journey into the world of fraternalism.
were no objections with the nominations of Denise Strong & Coleen
Tyack as branch officers. Coleen said a few welcoming words to her
new branch! She is very excited along with Denise to be the first
branch officers of S-629. Thank you to the both of you, your branch
is lucky to have you!
evening concluded with a raffle of various prizes. FCSLA is pleased to welcome Branch S-629 FCSLA Family!
