Exalted Ruler Message
Dear Brother and Sister Elks,
Happy New Years one and all! It’s the time of year when we all celebrate with family and friends and look forward to the New Year ahead and all the possibilities of what could be. Have you considered the possibility of stepping up to be a Chairman of one of our Committees or possibly even becoming a Officer? The Elk year runs April 1st to March 31st, so now is the time to make your intentions known to Our Lodge Sponsor, Donald Rood. I promise you the amount of time you will need to commit is minimal and will give you a real sense of purpose. Can we count on you for just 90 minutes a week as an Officer? Making that decision is the hardest part. The rest is easy and rewarding. Just ask any past or present Lodge Officer and they will be happy to share their great memories for as long as you want to listen.
Congratulations go out to our Lodge Trustee, Robert Ponzo, PER for being elected the Southeast District Vice-President for 2018-2019. A big thanks goes out to the Doe Club ladies who decorated our Lodge for the season. As I write this, we are preparing for another tremendously successful New Years Eve Party, thanks in no small part to Lou Gioia, Tom Bischoff and yours truly, and our significant others. Please check the Lodge website atwww.bpoe2107.org for updates or changes on our many upcoming events, as this bulletin is prepared 6 weeks prior to the month it is published for.
Valentines Day is just around the corner (see ad pg 3). Reservations are now open and prior payment is required. Super Bowl is coming up. Get your boxes and join us for the game. Finally, a joint Elk and Doe Night at the Races Fund- raiser is January 20th. Hope to see you all at these fun filled events.
Sincerely & Fraternally,
