Dear Elks:

If you are interested in attending events at other lodges in our district, this is the link to the Ohio Elks Association website for Northwest Ohio:


The annual inspection went well this weekend. The only issue we have is that there are no officers for next year. The Leading Knight and Loyal Knight are empty and therefore there is no successor for next year’s Exalted Ruler chair. The members will need to consider filling these vacancies in order for the lodge to maintain its charter.

The annual Christmas Party will be held on Saturday, December 14, from 11:00 am - 12:30 pm. Children and grandchildren of lodge members up to age twelve (12) are eligible for the gifts and all family members are welcome to attend. You must either sign up at the bar or RSVP to Jennifer Kahler at jenniferlkahler@yahoo.com or 419-618-0602 by December 7.

This year’s Hoop Shoot will be held on Saturday, December 14, from 1-4 pm, at the Tiffin Middle School Gym. The age brackets are 8-9, 10-11, 12-13, boys and girls. Three (3) more volunteers are needed for this event. Contact Bobby Kissell or Sam Bohanan to volunteer. First drink is on Bobbie if you commit to serving and follow through! 

The Elks Memorial Service will be held on Sunday, December 1, in the lodge room. The time is TBD. Please let us know of any Elks that have passed away this year. Email uptonm12@gmail.com with the names of the member that have passed this year. Thank you.

Cub Scout Pack 471 has 45 active scouts, and we have recently become part of the Tiffin Elks 94 who is our new charter organization. We strive to train the youth in responsible citizenship, character development, and self-reliance through a wide range of outdoor activities, education programs, and helping with local community organizations. 

The Scouting experience from elementary to college and everything in between, the Cub Scouts build knowledge that instills confidence in those who may find themselves without the necessary tools to make successful strides towards a promising future. As we look for vitality in our communities, we must be willing to put forth the commitment to ensure that we do not lose our most precious resource, our children.
