Exalted Ruler Message
As August turns to September, we put those lazy, hazy days of summer behind us and look forward to a very active autumn. Starting Tuesday, September 5, returns to its regular hours and the hectic pace of Lodge activity begins. On September 9, the Doe Club will host Latin Night (see ad within). The lounge will be open for Monday Night Football on Monday, September 18th as the NY Giants take on the Detroit Lions. Saturday, September 23rd is our annual German Night with authentic German food, music, and dancing. See chairman Lou Gilli for reservations (see ad). September also marks the end of the first half of the lodge year. If you have not made your annual donation to the Elks National Foundation, please consider doing so now. Every little bit will help us achieve our per capita of $4.60 and allow us to apply for ENF grants to fund much of our good works in the community.
Finally, I remind you that membership is the life blood of our order. I ask every member to consider sponsoring a new member. Also, if you are aware of a wayward Elk who has not yet paid his/her dues, give them a call, invite them down on Friday night, and remind them of why they became an Elk. Working together, we can insure that our lodge continues to thrive.
I hope to see you all soon. God Bless you and God Bless America!
