Exalted Ruler Message
Greetings Brother and Sister Elks:
I am pleased to once again be serving as your Exalted Ruler for the year. I’d also like to thank PER Mike Pellegrino and his team of Officers for their service during the past Elk year. Great job Mike and all your Officers!
As we begin our new year, let me once again thank the Doe Club for their generous donation to our Lodge at our Installation dinner. The funds go a long way in helping us meet our goals.
Membership dues notices have been mailed, so please send in your payments as soon as possible. Raffle tickets for our annual Super Raffle, our biggest fundraiser, are now available. Please pick them up at the bar or ask our Sponsor Don Rood. Remember that if you sell 6 raffles your dues are free.
Those of you that are members of the 150 Club, your dues are also due. If you’re not a member of the 150 Club, you can mail your $40 check to the Lodge or contact Art Maloney for details. You need not be present to win prizes in the monthly drawing.
Polish Night will be on April 27 this year, see the ad on page 3. June 1 is our testimonial dinner for PER Mike Pellegrino and June 30 will be our Super Raffle dinner.
Moving forward we will be reducing the number of newsletters from 12 to 8, but Robert has added a new service that sends emails, for those that request it.
This summer we’ll once again be working on significant improvements. We are currently researching avenues of financing the work as this will be our own major project. The Lodge is anticipated to be closed all summer.
Looking forward to a great year.
Yours in Fidelity,
Brian Diaz, PER
