State President Visits Cortland Lodge

On Saturday, October 10th the On Friday, New York State Elks President, John Jacques of Poughkeepsie Lodge 275, along with a number of Elk Officials, visited the Cortland Lodge. The Lodge, well attended by a number of Elks, provided a delightful lunch for our distinguished guests. The President made his way to each table greeting and talking to everyone in attendance.

Later that afternoon he was given a brief history and tour of the Cortland Lodge. He was also treated to a premier showing the Cortland Elks Lodge Promotional Video that was produced this summer using global study students from Tompkins Community College.  Movie was a big success in that I have been requested to send it to the State Webmaster to be used and would I allow other Lodges to use for initiation purposes.  A copy will be placed on YouTube, show on access TV, and sent to National.

At the podium John Jacques praised the Lodge and its members for all its accomplishments. The President was then presented with a gift of local wine and four wine glasses commemorating Cortland New York. His gratitude to Cortland Lodge was further acknowledged at the President’s Dinner in Norwich in which he reiterated the kindness and respect shown by our Lodge at the luncheon.  None of this would have happened with the support of all those that worked and in attendance. Thank you Cortland Elks. ER John
