Congratulations to all Officers, Trustees and Committee members. Let's all look to another, great, productive year here at BPOE #1776.

Our recent Annual Elks Hoop Shoot Competition resulted in our Dunkirk Elks Lodge Winner in the 8-9 the old age advancing to State.
His name is Milo Overmyer and he is the son of Mr and Mrs Jonathan and Whitney Overmyer from Redkey, Indiana.
Young Milo advanced and played in the World Famous "Hoosiers" movie gymnasium in Knightstown on February 24th, where he placed a very respectable 6th among Statewide competition!
CONGRATULATIONS TO YOU MILO!!
It was wonderful to share that special day with you in Knightstown and I am very proud of the fine young man that represented our Lodge and District so well.

March/April Banquet Room rentals are filling up very quickly. If you want or need to rent the banquet room, you'll need to book your event as early as possible to avoid scheduling conflicts.

Spring Forward into Daylight Savings Time on March 10th 2024.

Breakfast is always held on the first Saturday of each month. All you can eat, served buffet style on our steaming hot buffet table, from 8 to 10 AM.

The March Breakfast is a special benefit breakfast for an Elk in distress from The Union City Lodge, a Member and Lodge Employee named Vickie Day, so let's all turn out to show support for An Elk In Distress!!

Our Monthly Drawing is always held at 7 PM on the second Saturday of each month.

Our Tuesday evening dinners are held every Tuesday evening from 5 PM to 6:30 PM.

On Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening there is cooking off of the grill, and occasional specials if possible.

Easter is on March 31st this year.
I sincerely wish for all to have a wonderful, blessed day. Every time I reflect on Easter, I think of the beautiful song, He Lives!!

It was decided in a recent Lodge meeting that this year we will donate $250.00 to the Dunkirk Community Easter Egg Hunt on behalf of The Dunkirk Elks Lodge.
At this printing, I do not have a date for The Dunkirk Community Easter Egg Hunt, so the date is TBA/TBD.
I would like for any members who wish, to please attend and represent the Lodge.

April 6th is the District Deputy Clinic and District Meeting, to be held at Tipton Indiana, Lodge 1012 at Ten AM.
Required attendees are The Exalted Ruler, The Leading Knight, The Lodge Secretary and The Head Trustee.
All members are more than welcome to attend.
You just might learn something. 
The District Meetings are generally very informative.

In the Lodge we now have two bowling machines, an Internet Touch Tunes Jukebox, of course a shuffleboard and a billiards table. 
Coming soon is a claw machine game and a new ATM machine for the convenience of our patrons and members.
