As many of you know we had many successful December activities. New Year's Eve was a great night of food, dancing, and socializing with about 200 in attendance. The Lodge year is winding down and we have some loose ends to tie up. Members who have not paid their 2013 dues are requested to do so ASAP. According to the by-laws Article II Membership Section 4 all members must report address changes to the secretary of the lodge as soon as possible. Please remember to update phone numbers as well. This has been a challenge the Secretary and I have had in trying to contact delinquent members.
Now is the time of the year to think about getting involved in the leadership of the Lodge. We will take nominations for next year's elected positions at the Feb. 12th meeting and voting at the Feb. 26th meeting. This is your opportunity to help decide who will lead this great Lodge next year and I hope to have a great turn out. Fourth, let's continue to support all the committees that are working to make this year a huge success. I hope to see some new faces at the Lodge in the last two months of the Lodge year and beyond.
Finally, please keep proposing qualified candidates for membership. We have two more interviews before the last initiation of this year and applications are needed by Feb. 25th. I would love to have another 25 members added this year. Thank you all for promoting Elkdom. Remember to stay positive and we all can accomplish more as a TEAM.
