Officers Notes July 2014

Hello Members -

Once again, I would just like to thank all of the members for your support in all you do for our community and what you do to keep this Lodge moving forward in a positive manner.

The start of this year as your ER has been a little tougher than I really expected. I appreciate all the support you have shown to me. This truly is a great Lodge and we should all be proud of ourselves.

Summer is now upon us and the last few months have been a whirl-wind. With Easter, Mother’s Day, Memorial Day weekend, the parade, and our annual Lodge deep pit BBQ, just to name a few of the events we have had here at the Lodge, have really kept us busy.

For those of you that missed the deep pit BBQ - you missed a great time and a wonderful meal. The Lodge and the volunteers really did an excellent job. The ladies of the Emblem Club made a great potato salad and the guys working the pit provided the community with delicious BBQ. We served over 300 meals and received numerous compliments on the food. Thank you to everyone who helped to make this possible.

As the Lodge starts our “dark months” in July and August it doesn’t mean we will be less busy. Coming in the month of August we will be having our PER’s Luau. If it’s anything like last year, it will be a lot of fun and great food for all.

Let’s not forget about July 4th Celebrations and mark your calendar for July 11th as the Lodge welcomes Chris Warren, a 27 year veteran of the National Comedy Circuit who will be here to entertain us.

Chris has entertained our troops in the Middle East along with over 100 Elks Lodges across Oregon and Washington. It all starts around 5:30 P.M. with dinner and the show will be at 7:00 P.M. Come join us for a great meal and lots of laughs. Have a great summer and I will see you at the Lodge.

Fraternally,
Randy Mitchem
Exalted Ruler 2014 - 2015
