Branch Opening

Submitted by: Kelly M. Shedlock, Fraternal & Youth Director

FCSLA continues to grow. On November 17, 2016, I had the pleasure of opening two branches: S-639 and J-538 in Holland, OH. The best part was it was within driving distance for me—no flights or delays!

We had a wonderful turnout! A big thank you to Tim Snyder and Richard Goebel for all their hard work in signing up so many new members! They were a real pleasure to work with. Also, thank you to Tim Snyder and the first branch officers—Katie Dickman and Andrea Schak—for choosing Shorty's Restaurant for dinner. The food was excellent and the staff was awesome and very easy to work with.

We started the evening off with introductions of some special guests who were in attendance: Regional Sales Manager John Gonsiorek, Cleveland District President Joyce Lechman, Cleveland District 2nd Vice President Barbara Shedlock and Branch S-557 President Donna Oros. I want to thank all of them for making the trip. Fr. James Auth led us in Grace before dinner.

After dinner we played a game of FCSLA BINGO! I found a BINGO generator game on the Internet with which you can create your own BINGO games. I used words that are commonly used by FCLSA. It was a HUGE hit by all ages in attendance; I had lots of goodies for them to choose from as their gift for getting BINGO! I received lots of positive feedback about the game! I think it will be part of the opening dinners from now on.

Welcome to the FCSLA family branches S-639 & S-538! We are very excited to have you as part of our family! And I know from working with Tim over the past few months that this is going to be a very active and successful branch!
