From The Exalted Ruler

On June 29th I got on an early flight to head to St. Louis, Missouri for the Annual Grand Lodge National Convention! I am very proud to represent SLO322 and look forward to bringing back information!! I return the afternoon of the 3rd and you can find me on the morning of the 4th on the pool deck running the Annual PER 4th of July Pool Party! It’s definitely a whirl wind and I look forward to all of it!

We had some wonderful volunteerism in June. The Lodge Officers joined me poolside with our Scouts to educated members about the History of our Flag at our Flag Day Event/Ceremony. Our 4-year Trustee Deena Dana brought back Father’s Day at our Lodge with a Cornhole Tournament, prizes and a special menu at Poolside Grill! The event was a success, our dads were happy and I am thankful to everyone who helped out in order to make it happen. The last week of June we had the opportunity to showcase our Lodge during a Visitation from our Association Vice President David Martin. Many of our Committee Members showed up to give reports and we enjoyed a super delicious dinner afterward- a big thank you to Facilities Manager Dennis Adams and his crew for always making SLO322 shine.

July and August mean continued busy time at SLO322. Our RV camping spots have been really full and we have a lot of visiting members to our Lodge. Please remember to welcome them in, give them a tour and educate about our House Rules and Pool Rules if necessary. Continue to watch out for each other, care for our Lodge, bus your tables and keep guests to a reasonable number. Keep an eye on SignUp Genius and our NEW BULLETIN BOARDS at the Lodge entrances for Volunteer Opportunities!

With Fidelity,
Teresa Lara, PER
Exalted Ruler

 

Volunteer

As SLO322 members, we all took the oath at our Initiation and part of our Obligation is to commit at least 12 hours of volunteer service per year. That can be one hour a month or several hours at a few events. If we multiply 12 hours times 2,300 members that equates to 27,600 hours each year or the equivalent of 26.5 part-time employees!

Summer is our busiest time of year, so please utilize your skills and talents to help out around the lodge. If you don’t’ know what you can do, please ask! We are starting a new group for people who like to clean and fix things up around the Lodge. We want to help our facilities stay clean and organized. We have some Boy Scouts who like projects and some retired individuals that like fixing things. There are also some of us who work out their frustrations by cleaning things! (It really can be therapeutic!) A couple of really nice ladies have already volunteered to clean the ladies pool house, locker rooms and bathrooms (Thank you - Volunteer of the month – Gail Crawford) So please sign up using SignUp Genius or by calling the Lodge or by just jumping in where you see a need!

Boy Scouts of America - Girls Troop Formation

The Cuesta District Boy Scouts of America is calling all young ladies, 11-18 years of age to form a new BSA troop for Girls in San Luis Obispo.  The district is inviting you and your parents to the Troop Organizational Meeting on July 11 at 7pm at the Elks Lodge #322 (222 Elks Lane San Luis Obispo, CA 93401).

 

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.
