District No. 6120

Elk of the Month - May, 2016

Exalted Ruler Rich Lalmoia announced his selecttion of George Doering, PER and past long-serving Secretary, as Elk of the Month for June. George most recently was instrumental in organizing and fund raising to purchase a new Disabled American Veterans transport van in honor of our departed Elk George Magnuson. This is just the latest example of his continued demonstration of the virtues of Elkdom. He has tirelessly served our lodge, most notably as Secretary for over 25 years, and served as Exalted Ruler and State Trustee for the NYS Elks Association. I do not think there is a time anyone can recall where George did not step up when fellow Elks needed him.  To quote the Exalted Ruler, "George, on behalf of our Lodge, I want to say that we sincerely appreciate your outstanding efforts in getting this campaign started and seeing it through to fruition. Through your continued dedication to this Lodge, all of us can see that you truly have our motto in your heart.  'The faults of our members we write upon the sand, their virtues upon the tablets of love and memory'—or, in this case, a van."
