Veterans Dinner - November 9

Calling all SLO322 Veterans and those currently serving as well as their Guest Veterans to join us for our Annual complimentary BBQ Rib Dinner and Dessert. All Veterans and those currently serving MUST wear any or part of their original uniform and/or show Military Identification or a VA Clinic Card. Please check in at the Lodge Lobby to pick up COMPLIMENTARY dinner tickets. $15.00 for Non-Veterans. 
 

An estimated twenty-two million Veterans live in our communities. The Elks National President, Michael T. Luhr, has proclaimed November to be Veterans Remembrance Month as a way to  encourage us to reach out to local Veterans and offer your support.
 

This November and every month of the year, Elks will serve thousands of Veterans across the country. Elks volunteer at more than 330 VA Medical Centers, State Veterans Homes, clinics, transitional shelters and Veterans facilities where they plan activities, buy needed supplies, host meals and offer friendship.
 

Elks help Veterans rehabilitate and thrive by supporting adaptive sports events, and providing therapy kits and wheelchair gloves to recovering Veterans. More recently, Elks have pledged to help end Veteran homelessness by pledging $4 million dollars to assist Veterans experiencing homelessness. We've since helped thousands of Veterans exit or prevent homelessness. Our Elks Lodges are focal points for supporting local military members and Veterans and meeting their needs. Last year alone, the total value of Elks' contributions to our Nation's Veterans was nearly $47 million, and our Members served more than 677,000 Veterans. This Veterans
 

Remembrance Month, we urge you to join in the recognition of and service to the Veterans in your community. Let us also remember the words of Elks member and President John F. Kennedy who said, "As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words but to live by them."  There are nearly 1,900 Elks Lodges across the country with a total membership of around 800,000 Elks!  Thank you to all those who have served!!

 

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. 

 

Prevention of Substance Abuse for Youth

Our Drug Awareness Committee has reached out to help and partner with the non-profit organization, POSAFY. POSAFY, or “Prevention of Substance Abuse for Youth,” is dedicated to providing substance abuse prevention education, materials, and support for youth aged 11 years and older. Their programming empowers youth and their families to make healthy life decisions based on scientific knowledge and evidence-based studies. POSAFY is highly sought after throughout the county. Our Lodge partnership helps them broaden their reach and connects our Drug Awareness Committee to more resources. 

 

The first goal in our partnership is to provide some volunteers and golfers for POSAFY’s major annual fundraiser. The Golf for a Good Reason golf tournament kicks off with a shotgun start at: 9:00 am on Sunday, October 7th at Laguna Lake Golf Course.

 

This is a 10-hole tournament of 4 person teams. Register as a team of 4 for $50 or register as an individual for $65 and get teamed up by tournament organizers. Each player gets a gift bag, snack, water bottle and a chance to win one of many prizes. If you want to volunteer at the event please contact me at 617-347-6066 to sign up.
