Leading Knight - Grant McEldowney

January 2017 Message


     I challenge all members to get ready to break the Leading Knights' bank.  During the month of February, for any member making any donation to the Major Project (Purple Pig), I will donate One Dollar.  This means that if all our members donated to the Purple Pig in February, I will have to donate over $1300.00.  I challenge each and every member to come to the office andonate, or call the office (916-489-2103) and donate by phone using your credit card, or invite a friend to make a donation, turn in your Purple Pig, do what you can.  Give, a dollar or go HOG Wild, but DONATE! and make the Leading Knight pay through the snout. 

     After hearing about my challenge, the Exalted Ruler and Lodge Secretary have agreed to match my donation as well.  So, go ahead and SMOKE our bank accounts.  All of these funds go to help with physical, speech/language, or occupational therapy, vision screening services, and disabled student scholarships. On February 28th, I will compile a list of those who donated during the month of February and make my contribution.  Make US pay.

     On another note, elections for Officers and Trustees take place soon, in February.  We are still looking for some new leaders willing to take on new responsibilities and lead this lodge into the future.  Ask any officer, PER, trustee what those duties require.
