May 31, 2016 - by PAULINE BARBISH, Lodge 53 President

CLEVELAND — Let V Boj Lodge 53 help you start the summer season with their annual picnic on Father’s Day, Sunday, June 19. The welcome mat will be waiting at the SNPJ Farm on Heath Road in Kirtland, Ohio. The gates will open at noon and the kitchen will start serving at 2 p.m.

The picnic dinner will include cabbage rolls, roast pork and gravy, or sausage with various sides, krofe and coffee. Sandwiches and sides will also be available throughout the afternoon. Entertaining from the bandstand will be the Wayne Tomsic Band, providing their versatile music for your dancing and listening pleasure. Refreshments to quench your thirst will be available at the bar.

Be sure to mark your calendar for an enjoyable Father’s Day afternoon consisting of delicious, home-cooked Slovenian food, donuts and dancing. For more information call me at (440) 944-9139 or Martha at (440) 884-5043.

Our bus trip to Amish country is scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 13. This trip will include a visit to an animal farm, where we’ll take a wagon ride and have an opportunity to feed animals from other continents as well as our own. A family-style lunch will be served at Der Dutchman before we head off to a matinee performance at the Amish Country Comedy Theatre (laughter included). Our last stop will be shopping at Walnut Creek Cheese (free ice cream included).

As you can see, this trip is filled with a variety of venues to provide a full day of fun. The activity level will be mild since there will be very little walking involved. Everyone is welcome to join in this extremely fun day! Give me a call for more information.

A 110th anniversary celebration for V Boj Lodge 53 will be held Saturday, Nov. 5, at the Slovenian Workmen’s Home on Waterloo Road. A delicious family-style dinner will be served, with dishes ranging from dumpling soup to desserts of potica and strudel. And yes, there will be music and an open bar.

Please plan on attending this milestone event and enjoying an afternoon with the members of Lodge 53. Phone me or Martha for additional information.

So, get out your social calendar and reserve these three dates for lots of fun, food and fellowship.
