Exalted Rulers Message
I would like to begin my article by welcoming our ClubManager, Rose Isaac. Rose has been a member for some time now, so she knows this lodge well. She is a welcome addition and I hope she will receive 100% support from all of our members.
I also wish to thank our brand new member, Frank Campo for taking on the Government Relations Committee.
September was a busy month with lots of activities. The BBQ Team was busy with fund raisers, the officers had visitations and the annual Happy Happening at the Kiwanis Lake, which is such a wonderful event.
I would like to write a little about Public Relations. The Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks can no longer remain a closely guarded secret. In order to flourish and prosper and basically survive, we must cultivate a new generation of Elks. By working to improve the many great programs of service to our youth, our veterans, our communities and to those that need our help, and then letting the general public know what we are about, we can take the steps necessary to let our community know what Elkdom is about.
