MTA 88 August Meeting
This is a friendly reminder that the next MTA Lodge 88 meeting will be held on 8/14/18 at 5:30 pm at Barrack “O”. The Cecil Bittinger Memorial Lodge River Meeting will be on September 11th.
This well-attended meeting will again be hosted by Donna and Doug Bittinger’s place in the Potomac River Fish and Game Club.
This annual meeting started over three decades ago as a Lodge function when then MTA president Dan Seiler talked Lt. Cecil Bittinger into hosting the initial meeting at his first river place. The tradition of having our August Meeting at the River has continued but this year it is in September!
The Lodge voted overwhelmingly after Cecil’s passing to name the August River Meeting, “The Cecil Bittinger Memorial Lodge Meeting.” Donna and now retired Doug Bittinger are to be given a special acknowledgment for their many hours of labor to keep this tradition alive.
Don’t forget to mark your calendars for September 11, 2018, and plan on attending this very special Lodge social event. The Lodge Business Meeting will start at 4:00 pm but many members come earlier and spend the day.
This event is free for all MTA 88 members and Associate Members. Guests are $20 and must RSVP. There is a sign-up sheet at the Barrack or you can email your RSVPs to Dan Seiler at the following email address: Dan@copscorp.com.
