GREETINGS FROM YOUR EXALTED RULER
Fall is in the air, welcome September! Grand Lodge has provided a grant to all Lodges to assist with the burdens of the COVID pandemic. We have graciously accepted the check and will put it to good use within the Lodge.
Grand Lodge has also changed some of the requirements for applying for grants during the pandemic. We will be looking into any and all that we may be able to use to assist the Tiffin community.
The golf tournament was hugely successful this year, Thanks to all who participated and volunteered! We decided at the August Lodge meeting to donate $500 to the Elks National Fund from the golf tournament proceeds. The ENF fund allows us to apply for national grants to help the local community once we achieve our per capita.
September 9th will bring the return of an induction dinner as part of the new member initiation process. We will be initiating 3 new members in the month of September. If you are available, come enjoy dinner and meet the new members. Lasagna will be on the menu.
As of the end of August, we are still missing 55 members who are delinquent on dues. There is a list posted at the club for reference. Check it out and see if you recognize a name. Membership keeps the doors open!
Forever in Elkdom,
Chuck Jones, Exalted Ruler
