March Message From the Exalted Ruler


This will be my final ER massage and before I sign off I want to thank everyone for all the incredible support, help and hand work over the past 2 years. The Elks team does amazing work and I am proud to be a part of this organization. Keep up the great work and I will continue to help as your 5 year Trustee.

February was a busy month with Lodge business and planning for the next year. Looking forward, get ready for some changes in the next few months.

At the February Lodge meetings, the process of nominating and electing our new officers took place. The PERs nominated new officers on February 11th and the membership cast their ballots on February 25th. Tim Haight will take over the helm as Exalted Ruler, Kirk Hollis steps into the role of Leading Knight, Troy Calloway will be your next Loyal Knight, and Desiree Byrd will start her Elks Leadership career as the Lecturing Knight. After two years of ER,

I am happy to pass the gavel and take a break. I will still be incredibly involved, as I will take a role on the BOD/BOG, along with Craig Taylor, Andy Broadus, Natalie Dimitruck, and Ben Bouman.

Speaking of BOD/BOG—they have a lot of business to report from this month. Check out their message on page 4 of the Antes to learn about some important updates regarding our facilities and club.

February was not all business, we had some great social events as well. We started the month cheering for or against the Patriots during the Super Bowl party. Val Wilson even flew down from Wyoming to cheer the New England Patriots to victory.

On February 23rd, almost 20 Los Alamos Elks went to Grants, NM, for the Grants Lodge’s annual Crab Crack. Dee and PJ Hoisington were touched by the 2083 support for Dee’s home lodge and said it was another great event with lots of dancing and laughter.

The month ended with a great Payday Café of pulled pork sliders, beans and corn on February 28th. Our great chef Desiree Byrd prepped and cooked, with much support from Tim Haight. Proceeds from this dinner will go to offset the cost of the March Installation Dinner.

Fraternally Yours,
Brett Ray, Exalted Ruler
