December Message From the Exalted Ruler


November started out with our annual Veterans Dinner on Sunday the 11th. The event was well attended, serving all guests delicious smoke prime rib and fixings. A tip jar was passed for the ROTC students who served dinner and helped clean up after the meal. More than $200 was raised and the Elks Veterans committee rounded the donation out at $500. This donation has been used in the past for travel expenses when the students go to in their drill competitions. I was not able to attend but I heard the Veterans Committee did an excellent job as always. Thank you all for your efforts and thanks to Raymond and Betty for hanging the flags in the lodge.

We had three payday café meals this month. Two sponsored by Ben Bouman—for the first he served smoked chicken, and for the 29th Off Payday, shrimp scampi was the fare. The proceeds from both meals will be used for our annual Easter egg hunt. On the 8th, Craig Taylor served Green Chile stew, baked potatoes and other sides. The proceeds from this meal are to support youth activities. Thank you both very much for your efforts.

On Friday the 2nd, Alan Woodward and his team ecommissioned the last of the flags. This was an important and time consuming undertaking to decommission all the flags waiting for a proper ceremony. The Lodge and the community are grateful. Alan, thank you very much for this effort.

Richard Sisneros sponsored a cigar night on Friday the 16th. This event drew a good crowd and the cigar and bourbon paring was excellent, thank you Richard.

We have one member joining our lodge via transfer demit, one member being reinstated and three proposed members currently in the investigation process. 2018 promises to be one of our best years in a long time. Great job everyone.

The lounge has been busy so come on down and share some cheer as we ramp up for the Christmas season.

Fraternally Yours,
Brett Ray, Exalted Ruler
