Officers Notes December 2014
Hello Members -
Wow! Christmas is almost upon us, the time sure flies by when you are having fun. I hope everyone had a Happy and filling Thanksgiving, I know I sure did. The turkey was wonderful and the desserts were even better.
It’s December and it’s going to be a very busy month for the lodge, with the Christmas Party for the kids and the big one, the Christmas Basket Program that we do every year. This year we are looking at about 300 plus Christmas Baskets for the needy and we are going to need a lot of help putting the baskets together and collecting the food for them. If you can find a bit of time on your hands, please contact the lodge and see what you can do to help.
Our entertainment chairman, Randy Gorman has planned a Toy Dance at the lodge and yes there will be a small cover charge. It will cost $5.00 or a new, unwrapped toy to attend which will go to our Toys for Tots campaign. I hope we have a lot of attendees to the dance and plenty of “Ugly” Christmas sweaters. It will not only be a lot of fun but it is also for a good cause. Details are listed here in the Wapiti.
We are also looking for volunteers to help out in the dining room with dinner, banquets, serving, etc.. If anyone is interested and can help please contact the lodge. We have some big Christmas parties scheduled and can use all the help we can get.
Last and foremost, Lauryn and I want to wish everyone a very Happy Holiday Season and would love to see you all at the lodge. So come on down, enjoy the Toy Dance, the wonderful food in the Dining Room and let’s not forget Taco Tuesday. Until next time, remember Elks do Care and Elks Share!
