June 2013 Officers Notes
From our Exalted Ruler
Dear Members -
Another Magnificent month for Mojave Elks! We started out the Month of May performing at the Ritual contest in Ridgecrest, and I am happy to say that we brought home the trophy for most improved and got a standing ovation from the other lodges for our effort! Thank you Warren,
Deborah, and Eddie for stepping up and representing Mojave Elks Magnificently!
Our Lodge also had a wonderful Mothers Day Breakfast what a fun and joyful Morning! Thank
you to all who attended! A big Thank You to Deborah, Michelle, Cindy, and Ted for your hard work so early in the morning, and Thank You Elijah for handing out the flowers to all of the Moms!
This month Deborah, Ted, Cindy and I had the privilege of attending the California
Hawaii Elks State convention. I have a few of these conventions under my belt now, and I would have to say that I learned more at this convention than ever in the past. The speakers were very passionate about our wonderful organization, and more informative than usual. As always, the Poster child for our Purple Pig Major Project was inspirational, cute, and the whole program brought tears to the eyes, as always. If you don't realize how much we do and accomplish as the Best People On Earth, I urge you to just attend one of the Elks conventions!
I want to thank all of my officers, committee chairs, and volunteers! Early on, you have
already made this a really fun and joyful year. Please remember to thank all of them; we would be nowhere without them.
Now we start another magnificent month.
Remember, June 6th Mojave's own Vickie Zellner comes back to Mojave lodge as our new State Vice President!
I hope all will proudly represent Mojave and attend the dinner in honor of Vickie and her husband Don. All officers and chairmen, please remember we will be meeting earlier at 5 pm with our SVP to highlight all the Magnificent Programs our Mojave Elks do.
Remember to check your calendar for details of our Father's Day Tri-Tip dinner, it will be awesome!
Here's to another Magnificent Month!
