From The Exalted Ruler

We are swinging into my favorite season! I’m ready for Summertime and the consistent warm weather that comes with it here on the Central Coast! The month of May started off and finished STRONG. The first weekend brought a friendly competition at the annual Ritual Contest between the Lodges in our West Central Coast District. Our Officer Corp practiced for months! I’m happy to report that three Officers placed top three and overall our team got fourth place!!! It was a proud night for SLO322!

Our Annual Kentucky Derby was the following day and thanks to our Esteemed Lecturing Knight, Cynde Spence the event continues to grow every year- wonderful food, fabulous attire and great camaraderie. In the middle of the month we had a top notch crew who stepped up to help with Mother’s Day Brunch. Reggie Greenwood and his volunteers worked very hard in the kitchen and the Lodge was packed. We are very thankful to everyone who helped out! The next day we honored 18 local students at our annual Student of the Year and Scholarship Night and awarded them a combined total of $16,800! Two days later six Officers left for the four day California Hawaii Elks Association Convention in Fresno.

This month we initiated 15 new members and honored Zoli Harway as our Volunteer of the Month! Zoli has really taken an active roll in the Lodge- he is attending meetings regularly, has joined multiple Committees and helps out when needed. We ended the month with a wonderful Memorial Day- our Scouts participated in the Annual Ceremony put on by the American Legion at the Cemetery and shared the History of our Flag. Our Annual Pool Party was rocking thanks to the Lucky Nine’s and the CYOS crew! Phew! that was lot! June brings with it Poolside Grill every weekend, Flag Day by the Pool, Father’s Day by the Pool, the Association Vice President Visitation at our Lodge and the Annual Grand Lodge National Convention in St. Louis!

The Lodge is going to get busier as the weather warms up, kiddos get out of school and visiting Elks travel to the Central Coast. Please make sure to obey our By-laws, House Rules, and Pool Rules and please give FRIENDLY reminders with Brotherly Love to those who need them. Watch out for each other, care for our Lodge, keep guests to a reasonable number and make sure to sign everyone in on the guest book at the front, back and pool entrance. And, lastly we alway need volunteers. Please keep in mind that we request every member volunteers 12 hours per year. Check out opportunities at SignupGenius.com! See you Poolside!!

With Fidelity,

With Brotherly Love

Summer is getting closer and the weather is changing it seems by the hour!! We have had some great days in the sun and then that random rain! WOW! We are all looking forward to a fantastic Summer full of good health, sunshine and good times!

To ensure that, let’s remember- again out of Brotherly Love- to keep following the Statues and By-laws of the Lodge. Do your part to help out, volunteer, bus your tables and clean up after yourself and your guests! 

Also as a reminder, the By-law state is that smoking is not permitted within 25 feet of the lodge building. That means no smoking is allowed near the building at all. This By-law matches the City smoking ordinance that governs all public buildings and is imposed to ensure the public’s health.

We all know the facts: smoking is bad for our health and secondhand smoke is really bad, especially for the young, elderly, and those with respiratory issues. Statistics show that e-cigarette smoking (i.e. “Vaping”) is rapidly increasing in our teenage community, which is leading to serious health and behavioral problems and increasing educational difficulties.

Please help us do good and as Elks continue to look out for our younger generations (that are always watching our behavior) by setting a good example.

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.
