GREETINGS FROM YOUR EXALTED RULER...

Time to start the new Elk year out right! This year is our 130th anniversary of getting our charter on July 11, 1888!

Dueling Piano concert and Pot Luck in the ballroom April 7th- bring something good so I can eat it. This event is also when we announce winners of the Elk, Officer, and Citizen of the year awards.  

Pay your dues at the concert and receive your membership card instantly. The door card buzzer will be changed out from the old orange card to the new purple card on the first of April. Thank you to everyone who has already paid your dues. Thanks to all our current members and new members for making this past year a net GROWTH in members. We have many events planned this year and we look forward to visiting with you all throughout the year.  

A special thanks to everyone who helped with the kitchen renovation. It is almost complete, and we will be at full-service capabilities this month. 

We are always looking for new and innovative ideas for fundraising and charitable giving.  If you have any ideas, let us know or come to a meeting on the first or third Thursday of the month.  

 

Forever in Elkdom,
    Branden Johnson, ER


FROM THE SECRETARY...

Happy New Lodge Year! April 1st denotes the beginning of the lodge year, so the lock will be changed for our new purple membership cards.  If you haven’t already, please renew your membership for the coming year. We have already received 44% of our dues- special thanks to those who have renewed memberships for this year! I will be at the Dueling Pianos event on April 7th with all the cards for current members who need to renew- bring cash, a check, or pay at the bar. Hope to see you all then!

Respectfully Yours,
    Laura Johnson, Secretary
