Exalted Ruler Letter:
Well another year has passed. I want to thank all for your trust in me as I will be your Exalted Ruler for another year. I need to apologize to all for the Tale being so late, but things have been a little hectic for me lately. The ceiling and roof have finally been inspected by the adjuster and we are waiting for his final word. Then we hope to get everything put back to normal again. We are in great need for bingo workers, please sign up, it is only once every couple of months. This month is most important as we are having our first BIG party. This is very important that you all try to bring a guest or 2. We hope that by seeing what we have to offer we might be able to secure a few new members. We are offering $50 in Elk money for those who sign up that night and then complete initiation. We are having a casino set up in the back of the room and dancing in the front to a DJ. The $13.99 buffet is a great price for seafood. I also am in need of a few folks to step up and help with some of the lodge projects. Thanks to all who have already done so. I know I am always asking for something, but we need things and we have no funds to get them. We now have a great patio, but very little deck furniture. Please try to donate a chair or table. Don’t forget that we have a fire pit and we use it on Fri. and Sat . nights. It is a great place to relax in the quiet out doors with the warmth of the fire. Spring is just around the corner, so don’t forget that we will need some flowers and plants.
PLEASE BRING A FRIEND OR TWO AND JOIN US ON THE 21st.
