September 2017 Message

Greetings Elks, it’s September and your Lodge needs your ideas and support.  After the writing of my August article I am pleased to announce that we initiated twenty-nine new members for July 2017. Please welcome our new members to your Lodge with open arms and ask them to join one of our various committees.

This past month we had the pleasure of a visitation from our DDGER Tom Ward who is visiting all the Lodges in the District. Along with Tom was his entire corps of Officers who accompany him when he makes his visitations.

We are still looking for members to visit the dining room for lunch weekly. Have you made your visit lately? On another note it is anticipated that the Tuesday Buffet Lunch will be discontinued effective September 15th as the costs are not being covered. However we will continue to regular menu that is now available Monday-Friday. Please come out and support your Lodge.

This past month our Board of Directors has made some needed repairs to a few areas of the Lodge.  These repairs had remained in limbo for many months. Working together we can accomplish many goals. Staying in your lane is not acceptable. Let’s get everyone involved and participate in all the great activities the Lodge has to offer.

Please keep an eye on the calendar on the back page of your Lodge bulletin as events are listed. Have you noticed that the Wednesday night menu has changed? Have you attended one of your Lodge meeting lately? Why not come out to one of the meetings and get a firsthand look on what your Lodge is doing. Hope to see many new faces in the near future attending your Lodge meetings.

October 2017  Message

     Some would think that we are rolling into the fall weather. However we definitely had a month to remember with all those days of triple heat.

     It was great to see so many members using the Lodge pool on a regular basis. It must have been the heat or just large gatherings of Elks care and Elks Share.

     Overall I would say we have had a very successful month of activities. It is great to see so many members enjoying the Lodge on a regular basis and hopefully will continue to enjoy. Because of our members spreading the word of Elkdom we have initiated 47 new members in the past two months. Thank you members. Let’s get everyone involved in our Lodge activities.

     Keep in mind that we have Officers and Chairs meeting on the first Tuesday of the month. I would encourage all chairmen to attend. Speaking of Chairman I am looking for members who will step up and volunteer for the following Chairmanship positions: Public Relations; Grants writer; Technology and Communications; Mothers Day program and Second Step. We need your help to continue to move OUR LODGE forward.

     Our Fifth Wednesday dinner dance was a success with great food and a super group of volunteers who came out to assist. It was great to see some new faces that joined in for the evening to help out on this event. Thank you.

     Keep in mind the Horse Races on October 27, 2017 in the Lodge room. This is our Lodges biggest fundraiser for the Elks National Foundation. Come out and enjoy the activities and come early as the kitchen will have food available. Your presence is requested to have FUN!
