As June begins, your Lodge is preparing for one of the most meaningful services of the year: Flag Day. Observed on June 14, Flag Day celebrates the symbol of our liberty and freedom. I encourage you to join us for this time-honored ceremony. There are other events scheduled throughout the month. Be sure to check the calendar, and don't miss any of them! We have some illness in the Lodge; if you know of a member ill at home or in the hospital, please let our secretary or one of the girls in the Lounge know. Sometimes a prayer is all we can offer up, and we all need someone praying for us! Like Elks across this nation, your Lodge is moving ahead and "Meeting the Challenge". Come out and meet some new members, enjoy the entertainment, and catch up with the "regulars". There are lots of activities scheduled for the month; check out the monthly newsletter and the weekly "shouts" for updates and further information.
It's Great to Be an Elk!
