Elks Lodges bring so much more to their communities than just a building. They are places where neighbors come together, families share meals, and children grow up.Elks invest in their communities through programs that help children grow up healthy and drug-free, by undertaking projects that address unmet needs, and by honoring the service and sacrifice of our veterans.
At the Elks Lodge veterans come first and formost, with a dedication to the United States Constitution and the laws that are set forth in our great country, a love for the flag and what it represents.
Greetings fellow Elks! What a great time the month of February was; but first, let's not forget our Womanless Beauty Contest in January. Another thanks to all the guys who set aside their manliness for a day. Together we raised enough money to meet our ENF and TEBT per capita and even carry a sizeable amount over to kick off next year's! Another thanks to all who attended to make this a great fundraiser. We will definitely make this an annual event and will have to have Homer and Tommy back to mc the event. Guys, go ahead and start planning, hope we will have a few more join us next time. Ok, on to February, Zonna and I would like to thank everyone for their support in the loss of her father. You all have become part of our family and during these tough times it means everything to have you with us. The Valentines party was a lot of fun and Dinah's tacky t-shirt contest was a blast. Congratulations to the winners, hope next year's will have a few more entries. I would like to say thanks to all of the Past Exalted Rulers who came and held our first meeting in February. It's an honor to have each of you give of your time to attend these PER nights. The ice storm caused us to move our second meeting of the month to the fourth week instead of the third. That's when the officers for the coming year were elected. Congratulations to each of you and good luck in the year to come. Always keep our lodge and its members in mind when making decisions. Now for March, this will be my last newsletter for this lodge year. I hope the last eleven weren't too boring. I want to thank all the officers that helped make this a great year and a large thanks to all you members who supported us in our efforts. A special thanks to everyone who gave of their time to help carry, clean, set up and tear down when an event was held. You are too numerous for me to mention by name but it has meant a lot that you care enough to give of your time. We have one of the best lodges in the state and it's all due to the best members any lodge could ask for. Please continue your support in the year to come and let's make 2015-2016 even better!
