Exalted Ruler Message
I hope everyone had a happy & healthy Thanksgiving. I’m am so grateful and proud of the good work my Officers have accomplished, and with the memberships support, we will meet and exceed all the Grand Lodge and New York State goals
November was a busy month. We had our District Administration Visit on Wednesday the 1st. Special thanks for the countless hours of the hard work our Sponsor, Donald Rood puts in. We also had a great showing at the District Deputy Visitation on Nov. 8th, and the Officers performed an outstanding rendition of the Ritual. Lenny Musmesci did another amazing job organizing the Fall Cigar Night, which generated significant funds for the Lodge charitable causes.
December is here and there is so much happening at the Lodge. On Sunday, December 3 we will hold our annual Elks Memorial service for our departed Brothers and Sisters. Thurs the 14th is our annual the Elk / Mason Children’s Christmas Party. Volunteers are always needed for this special event. Last but not least for the year is the New Year’s Eve Gala. It’s going to be another spectacular evening as we ring in 2018. Tables are going fast, so get your’s before your shut out. Deadline for paid reservations is Dec. 16. More info can be found on page 3.
A lot of members are now showing up to the general lodge meetings, and candidates are applying at a record pace. No one could be happier than I am, the more Brothers and Sisters at the meetings the better; to meet, greet, mingle and get to know each other. The members of Elkdom are making my journey fun and rewarding as I travel throughout the District.
Finally, I wish every Elk, their Family and Friends, a very happy holiday season, Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy & Prosperous New Year.
Sincerely & Fraternally,
