Greetings Brother and Sister Elks:

     It is unfortunate, but our Lodge will not be hosting a golf outing for the second year in a row. We need to find a member who would consider chairing this event in the future. The golf outing over the years has been a good fund raiser and great time for all who played. Please contact myself or Don Rood if interested in helping out or chairing in the future. As an alternative for our golfers this year, The Massapequa Lodge will be hosting a golf outing on August 1 at Timber Point. Call Tom or Kathy Harrington at 516-781-5649 or 516-698-4943 for details.     

    The Veterans annual picnic will be held at St. Albans on June 8. Volunteers are needed. Please contact Robert Giglio for details or be at the Lodge by 10AM. Mitch Lidowski and his bandmates will once again be providing the music.
     Flag Day ceremonies will be on June 12 and is open to the public. Come down and honor our flag. Our annual Scholarships and Most Valuable Student awards, along with the Doe Youth awards, are given out  on this night. We have some very deserving students again this year.
The Super raffle dinner will be held on June 30th and will be combined with our honoring PER Mike Pellegrino for his service the past Lodge year.
     Finally, I would like to congratulate Robert Ponzo on his completing his year as our State Vice President. Robert will still be busy though as he is our House co-chairman, manages the website, newsletter and technology for our Lodge.

     I look forward to representing our Lodge at the State and National Conventions.


     Yours in Fidelity,

 Brian Diaz, PER
