GREETINGS FROM YOUR EXALTED RULER
As we close 2020 many successful parts to look back on and build for 2021. We had 2 successful fundraisers grossing over $26,000 for our Elks Lodge. We continued our relationship with the Boy Scouts. We continue to add new members during this challenging time. We improved the dining room in the club and updated some fixtures. We added 2 new staff members to the club. We safely returned to our monthly meals. Our officers, trustees and some key volunteers gave their valuable time to ensure the club was cleaned during the shut down and staffed when we reopened. Although 2020 was one to forget in many ways we have a lot to be excited about moving forward.
Traditionally our Memorial Service is set for December 6th. We have decided to cancel the service this year and include our lost members in the service for 2021.
Rick Brodman, Deceased, 3/11/20, PER, member for 18 years
John Eichorn, Deceased, 6/27/20, Life member for 53 years
Ronald Reinhart, Deceased, 7/21/20, Life member for 36 years
“To our Absent Members”
During the November Lodge meeting we initiated Vito Sciuto. At the same Lodge meeting the trustees filled their 2 open spots. Welcome Sharon Gosche and Ron Brown to the officer group.
Because of Covid and the restrictions the Governor has placed on everyone our events for December are in a very fluid state. Please watch your email, the Facebook page, and look for postings if at the Lodge.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.
Forever in Elkdom,
Chuck Jones, Exalted Ruler
