From The Exalted Ruler

I can't believe that Summertime is almost over and the kiddos are heading back to school in a few weeks. I hope that everyone took some time to sit back and relax, spend some quality time with the family and enjoy adventures outdoors in the last few months. If you missed out on some fun-in-the-sun, no
stress, you still have time to enjoy the wonderful area we live in cause heck,- this place is amazing through October!

The Grand Lodge National Convention in St. Louis, Missouri was fabulous, hot but fabulous! My First Dude and I attended some educational and informative seminars and spend some quality time with other Exalted Rulers and Dignitaries from our District as well as Exalted Rulers from all over the entire Country. Upon my return we had a top notch 4th of July PER Pool Party and seven Past Exalted Rulers showed up to help with the event! It was wonderful to see everyone that came out and I am thankful to all the members who attended.

August brings with it our first ever End of Summer Adult-Only Luau! The Chairs of the event have been working closely with the Office Staff, the Bar Staff, the Party Planning Committee and the House Committee in order to make this event great. We are really looking forward to it- don’t miss out, get your tickets now before they are gone!

The Party Planning Committee has been working diligently to bring back small plates at Ladies Night on Thursdays and so far things are going well. The Committee members are really looking forward to growing this night and are always open to suggestions and new members. Please remember that there are multiple volunteer opportunities throughout SLO322. Log on to SignUpGenius.com, check out the bulletin boards or stop by the Office to see where you can help out your Lodge!

With Fidelity,
Teresa Lara, PER
Exalted Ruler

Membership has its privileges! We hear that all the time and maybe sometimes we forget about the responsibilities associated with membership, but we are all here in the same boat by becoming members of this great lodge of Elks! BPOE has sometimes been defined as the Best People On Earth! Let’s stay that way by practicing the basics of using the Elks Lodge Membership Card to enter the Lodge.

Maybe it would help to think of it the same way you may think of your Costco membership card. When you shop at Costco, the first thing you do is show your membership card. You can’t get into Costco without it, you can’t purchase your items without it! Likewise, when you come to the Lodge you need to use your membership card to get inside the building and also you need to show it to the bartender to purchase your beverage. Another thing that is sometimes forgotten is that your guests cannot purchase their own beverages, only the member can purchase beverages. You are also responsible for the behavior of your guests. When you go to another Elks Lodge, the same rules apply. You can’t get in without your card.

Recently, there has been a problem with non-members gaining access to the lodge by using the buzzer and someone lets them in. Sometimes it has been an RV camper checking in, other times it has been an unsavory vagrant that may have been putting our members and staff at risk. If you see someone wanting to get in without using their membership card, let’s be sure to ask that person if they need assistance, and ask for them to show their membership card or direct them to the bartender to verify their membership card. If they say, “Oh, it’s in the car,” tell them, “I’m sorry, but you will have to show your membership card to get in.” Just like at Costco.

Volunteers Needed

WE NEED VOLUNTEERS! We are a large Lodge, nearly 2,400 strong! When you become an Elk, it is suggested you offer 12 volunteer hours each year to any of the many events and causes where we give service. What you may not realize is that these hours are calculated and reported to the National Elks. And, with our volunteer hours, our Lodge is acknowledged and awarded opportunities to apply for a variety of grants and scholarships. The monies that are awarded are allocated in OUR community.

 

Please note that all activities needing volunteer support are available for you to view on SignUpGenius. We ask you to look at SignUpGenius in the months ahead as a means of securing an hour or two toward your yearly goal of 12 hours. After all, so much goodness awaits, when we embrace the benevolent aspect of our membership here at SLO322.
