Officers Notes January 2015
Hello Members -
Happy New Year to you all! Wow, its 2015 already and this last year has sure gone by quickly. Maybe that’s because we have been so busy at the lodge these past few months. The Christmas Basket program has been completed with well over 300 baskets delivered to needy families. Included were lots of toys for the kids. We saw lots of smiling faces and thank you’ during this time of year.
The Children’s Christmas Party was also a very big success and we had approximately 75 children attending the party with games, a magic show and sing along. The big smiles on all the kids’ faces when Santa Claus showed up was priceless. My personal thanks goes out to all the volunteers that gave so much of their time. Without them we couldn’t of accomplished what we did. Connie Brandrup won our annual Ugly Sweater contest held during the Toys for Tot dance. Thank you Connie for donating the money back to Toys for Tots.
I also want to thank the Calvin E Murphy Marine Corp League and Viet Nam Veteran’s for all their help in collecting food for the Food Basket Program and John (Rollo) Parke. He did an outstanding job with the children. I must add, he does make a great Santa Claus.
Thank you Rollo for a job well done. And thank you Marines and Veteran’s for all your help and support, I Salute you all.
My wife Lauryn and I want to wish everyone a very Happy New Year. Let’s all enjoy it to the fullest. Don’t forget the great food that is being served in the dining room. Come on by and welcome our new cook Rodney and his staff and enjoy a good meal. Let’s not forget about Taco Tuesday. See you all at the lodge.
Remember Elks Share and Elks Care!
