Well not new one, but you would think it was.  Almost 10 years of wax and dirt build up was removed from "OUR" lobby.  Next time you are in the building take a look. 

Did you think the floor was reddish or brownish in color?

How much more fun can you have then enjoying the fellowship each year at the annual Classic Car Show.  Rick Snider and his unit did a FEZ-TASTIC job!  The members from Warren County Shrine Club, and the Annie Oakley's from the Gun Club provided plenty of food for everyone.  Our very own Rick and Teresa Maynard tended bar all afternoon.  The Photo Unit provide the entrants with last memories of this event.  All in all a great afternoon!

Come out and support the Classic Car Unit at their annual car show.  There will be over 200 cars from across America displaying the finest the automobile industry has built.  Proceeds support Antioch!  See you at the SHOW!!

As we approach the middle of August, we also approach the middle of picnic season.  Tonight it was Miami County!  50 nobles and ladies were there and we all had a great evening. We also learned that there are (3) 50 year wedding anniversaries up there.  Wow Pam and I only have 49 years and 8 months to catch up!!  Congrats everyone!!

With the whirl wind summer we have had, it was strange to have an almost normal evening...  Mr. Heizer & I conducted interviews on our future building manager.  Two very fine candidates.  The Divan will make it's final decision next week and we will be back at full strength in September!  Attended the Classic Cars final meeting before their Car Show, the Brass Bands ladies dinner, and rounded out the evening at the Motor Corps meeting. 

Putting the final touches on the golf outing for this weekend.  After mother nature hasn't been that kind to big events (Indy) this year, Saturday looks wonderful!  Still have a couple of openings if you wish to come out.

Watch for some great fall events and our final parades of the summer coming up after Labor Day!!

As we headed to the earliest parade of the year, what a wonderful day it turned into! A great parade in Englewood, and a great afterglow arranged by the Marching Patrol!  Antioch WON the CHAIRMANS AWARD for the parade! 

Great to see our Pipers back in action! 

The Jeepsters made it down from Greenville for the event!!

What a FEZ-TASTIC job Antioch does when on parade in our local communities!

Unfortunately, with Imperial and a quick turn around for the Crier, the Funsters article was left out of the this months edition.... So here is what you missed...

Well all you Funsters, as I sit here thinking, I got in trouble
trying to think of some news for this issue. I would be safe
in saying that a good time was had by all at the Imperial, as
no news has come out.  (LOTS OF COMPITION AWARDS) I hope that all are in good health and spirits. We wish Pickles the best of every thing in his move to sunny Florida. Who is going to step up and take over the duties of Chief cook and bottle washer?
We also need a new editor for Funsters crier items, come on step forward.
From the book" A Blonde Walks into a Bar" I found these Items of interest.

After missing a week of posting to the blog, we will begin the HOT dog days of summer?  HOT...Really?  What began as a iffy day for a parade on Saturday, turned into a beautiful summers day at Indian Lake!  A nice community parade in Russells Point followed by the Lake's Famous BBQ Chicken Dinners for everyone!
This was followed by another SUPRISE Wedding!  Nelson & Pam Spellman celebrated their 40th anniversary with us, and then Nelson surprised Pam and everyone by renewing their vows in front of the Antioch Family.  A great day to be a Shriner at Antioch!!
