    Wow! What a good annual PERs night we had at the February 12th Lodge meeting. As many of you know the Grand Lodge statutes state the first Lodge meeting in February a night to honor our PERs. We were fortunate to have PER Ron Wood preside as Exalted Ruler, PER Kevin Epperson set in as leading Knight, PER Jason Mayberry set in as loyal Knight and PER Patty Boyd fill the Lecturing Knight position. We also had PER Jim Templeton as our esquire. Not only did they fill the chairs they also initiated 3 new members into our order and did a very nice job. Also present at the meeting were PERs Jim Boyd, Jerry Hochstetler and Pete Adams. We want to thank all of our PERs for their dedication to Elkdom and all they have contributed.

    2019-2020 Dues notices are on the way. Yearly dues are the same as last year and are due by April 1st. If we receive your dues prior March 15th you will get an early bird sticker on your membership card. Also as before you have the option of donating to the Elks national foundation. ( ENF ). This is a very worthwhile cause and last year we received grants back from ENF totaling $7000.00. This was for our Kids day, fishing derby, the fingerprinting program and a special donation to the children's square. So please consider a donation to the ENF. Also included in with your dues notice is a ticket to purchase for our state major project. This is also a very good cause and you could get some money back if your name is drawn at the state convention. Thanks in advance for your continuing support of Elkdom and your Lodge.
