May is a busy month for us. The officer's breakfast will be held on the second Sunday, May 12th, as this is Mother's Day. The breakfast will be at the usual time, 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon, and the mandatory Elks Mother's Day observance will be held following the breakfast at 1:00 p.m.
May also brings the Azalea Festival over Memorial Day weekend, with the annual deep pit beef barbecue. The barbecue committee will need lots of help so please contact Loyal Knight Bob Gardner if you can help in any way. The Emblem Club will be asked once again to assist us and their help is always greatly appreciated. There is also an effort to have a combined Elks and Emblem Club float for the parade.
Our Friday night dinners are doing great, and the 3rd Friday fish fry's are excellent. Taco Tuesday's are in full swing and don't forget the Monday night surprise diners. If you haven't tried the soups being offered in the lounge, you don't know what you are missing. The proceeds from the soup sales are going to new blinds in the bar, and when the blinds are fully replaced the proceeds will go toward other improvements for the lounge area. So come up and enjoy a nice bowl of soup for lunch or for early diner on the nights we don't have meals in the dining room.
Friday bingo is going strong, come up and play or volunteer to help. Check the calendar for all the activities this month and come up and enjoy your lodge.
