Exalted Ruler Message
Greeting Brother and Sister Elks:
Now it’s October, and the Lodge is in full swing. If you look around, you will notice all the improvements that have been made, by Bob Konan, and his crew making repairs and painting the Lodge throughout. We have just returned from the Lodge Elk Trip to Mackinaw City & Mackinac Island in Michigan. We had a great time and have returned with wonderful memories, more people should consider signing up for these annual Fall trips. They are so much fun.
We had a hugely successful German Night in September and look forward to Italian Night in October. Please contact Carmela Narducci for reservations for Italian Night (information within). Also, make sure you make your reservation early because it’s always a sell-out.
October also brings us another Casino Trip, this time to the Sands; again contact Carmela for your reservations. We look ahead to November's Halloween Night as well as American Night, check your bulletin for dates and details.
Upcoming Doe events includes Pirates Revenge in October and LCR game night in November, these nights are always fun filled. We should appreciate all the hard work that goes into the Elk and Doe events. The Chairpeople and Committees put a lot of time and effort into making these memorable events. Please do your best to attend them. The proceeds go a long way to helping us donate money to our charities. As always we should be mindful of our ENF donations. Make your donation directly to our Lodge and not to the Grand Lodge in Chicago as we do not get the per capita credit to reaching our annual goal.
As I frequently say, I would like to see an increase in our membership at our meetings. We have a lot of changes in the way that we operate our Lodge and its functions. It would be wonderful if we had more members at our meetings to hear what is going on so then they can let their friends and family know .
Finally, please note down in your calendar Wednesday night, November 14th. In addition to holding our annual District Deputy visitation. It is also the homecoming for our own State Vice-President, Robert Ponzo. Please come out and show Robert and the rest of the District that NHP-NS Elks Care.
Yours in Fidelity,
