And just like that, summer arrived. While it may be hot and muggy outside, the Lodge is cool and has chilled beverages for (almost) every palate. Be sure to remember our annual Flag Day ceremony on June 14. This is a ceremony mandated to by Grand Lodge and I hope you will join us as we celebrate "Old Glory" and remember the history of our Flag. 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 "Promoting Elkdom with Enthusiasm". 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!
