Here are three items coming up soon!


Here are three items coming up soon!

First, for our program on February 23; Jim Clarkson is a retired police Detective Sergeant who quite by accident found himself investigating a famous UFO sighting in Grays Harbor. He's been investigating ever since. He has taken his investigations to Area 51 in the Nevada desert and the famous UFO crash sites in New Mexico. Because he uses the same no nonsense investigative methods he used as a Detective he discounts far more reports than he endorses. Jim has been asked to speak all over the country and is the author of a book with a strong Ocean Shores connection. For more information go to http://www.clarksonufo.com/

For a fascinating evening attend our February 23rd meeting. A presentation open to friends will be followed by a short business meeting.' Dinner will begin at 6:30, with the presentation to follow. For more info, please contact VM Jon Kime. This should be good!

Second - Our Valley of Olympia will be assisting the Valley of Hoquiam with the 18th through 32nd degrees on Saturday, March 12 starting at 9am. There will be two candidates. We can certainly use your help - either as a sideliner or as a degree-team member! Please mark your calendars.

Finally, a reminder of our trip to Guthrie - leaving March 31 and returning April 4. If you're thinking of going, Illustrious Skip needs your rsvp by the end of this month (February 28th) so as to book the rooms at the Guthrie Scottish Rite Center.

For questions or more info on the last two, please give Skip a call at 360-280-4108 (local in Olympia.)
