October Message From the Exalted Ruler


September was another busy month for BPOE 2083! We started on Saturday the 1st with a cleanup of the exterior grounds. There were many helping hands, including Troy Calloway, Bill Gregory, Mark & Trish Sandoval, Al & Gail Stadelmaier, Sue Cummings, Craig & Graham Taylor, Kirk Hollis, and myself. We pulled weeds, mowed, picked up trash, prepared the no trespassing signs and poisoned the Chinese Elm stumps out front— big thank you to all who came out and helped.

Our first Lodge meeting of the month was also our Annual District Deputy visit, this year’s DD is Brenda Ferri from the Raton Lodge. Brenda did an audit of all our records and gave a us a very good review, thank you Rena, Gary, Kirk and all who helped with this effort.

The annual fall BBQ was held on Saturday the 8th with Steve Remde taking the lead. As usual. there were many other folks that helped; and, if you blinked, you went hungry because we sold out in an hour.

On Tuesday the 11th the Lodge hosted the Women’s fall Classic Luncheon for their annual golf tournament. Mark and Trish Sandoval took the lead and cooked for this event and they had a great crew helping that made the event a big success.

The final bike night was held on the 20th with a great meal that raised over $800. All the proceeds were collected to support a Deputy Sheriff, and his wife, who were injured in a motorcycle accident. Raymond and Betty Smith worked with the Motorcycle Committee to organize the fundraiser. As an added perk, at this event we alsohad our annual visit from State Elect President Barbara Venturi and her husband from the Las Vegas Lodge. It was a great event to showcase our hospitality and our charity.

Bike night was followed by our annual Golf tournament on Friday the 21st, where we did better than last year and raised over $9,000.00 for Lodge charities. Finally the New Mexico Fall work shop was held at the Alamogordo Elks which was very informative and we turned in $1,819 in CP tickets. Thank you Bill for again chairing this committee.

October will be just as busy with initiations, important Lodge votes, and Halloween Party preparations. I hope to see you all throughout the month.

Fraternally Yours,
Brett Ray, Exalted Ruler
