Exalted Rulers Message

Hello All:

Hello all, I’m sure you have all heard how we did in the 2017 West Central Coast District ritual competition. Our Leading knight Dave Oliveira placed First and received most impressive Leading Knight award. Our Loyal Knight Michael Maglinte and Chaplin Juanita Miranda placed first, Inner Guard Jason Rose took 3rd place. The rest of us did a great job and although we did receive many awards it wasn’t quite enough to win 1st place team. We missed it by .4043 pts, that’s pretty darn close. Unfortunately I had a 1 point deficit going into the competition being a repeat Exalted ruler, that was a very difficult place to overcome. If you watched us perform, it was our best performance ever, I would like to thank all of the officers that participated. It took a lot of time out of their schedule and a lot of hard work. I especially want to thank Dean Kays and Joe Poole for their ability to put up with us. Thanks to their hard work and dedication we were able to create a winning team. I say winning because without the 1 point deficit we clearly would have placed first in the competition. We cheered on Santa Maria at State and as of this writing I don’t know how they ended up.

It’s Rodeo time. If you haven’t been to the rodeo or haven’t been in a while take some time and go over to watch the action of the 74th annual Elks Rodeo. In addition the officers will be in the Parade on Saturday, so if you’re out and about go over and watch the parade it starts at 9:00 a.m. on South Broadway. Hope to see you all there.

Flag Day is on Wednesday June 14th in the Ballroom. The 2274 Boy Scouts will be presenting the flags. The ceremony starts at 5:00p.m. Dinner will follow in the Members lounge. All are encouraged to attend, If you haven’t been it’s quite a ceremony. That’s all for now…..

Fraternally Yours
Dan Oliveira, Exalted Ruler
