From the Station of the Lecturing Knight
November is the month traditionally associated with Thanksgiving. What better time to reflect on the many things for which we have to be thankful.
As members of Redondo Beach Elks Lodge No. 1378 we can be thankful that our lodge is in such a beautiful location – with windows so we can see the sunsets – and that we are one of only a small fraction of the lodges nationwide that has enjoyed an increase in membership for the last ten consecutive years. And we are on track to continue that record for another year.
As Elks, we can be thankful and proud that we belong to an organization that does so much to help and support those in our country who are in need. The veterans and students benefit from our order. So do the children who have disabilities or diseases, not only in our state association, but throughout the country, to which the Elks have committed to give assistance. As with our lodge, many lodges throughout the nation are helping the homeless. There are many other charitable causes that, without the Elks, would have hard time.
For my part, I would like to thank all of you for your continuing support for me and my fellow officers as we strive to make this lodge and Elkdom better and better.
Finally, please try to join us on Sunday, December 7 at 4:00 PM for our annual tribute to the members who have passed away during the past year.
Sincerely, Your sister and Esteemed Lecturing Knight,
