Exalted Rulers Message
April is a busy time for Elkdom as many members renew their membership and gear up for a brand new Elks Year.
I wish to thank you all for showing me your support and confidence and electing me your Exalted Ruler tor 2014-2015.
I will do my best to do a good job for you and our lodge.
The Lodge Officer corp. will be practicing for the ritual contest in hopes of bringing home the trophy for our lodge again this year.
Our Officer Corp. will be the “greenest” I think I’ve ever seen anywhere, at any time with three brand new members, one with one year of experience and two with three years. “Box Shop” Bob is our wily veteran. With our coaches and our determination, there isn’t anyone in this group who doesn’t believe we can’t succeed.
I’m optimistic that this will be a great year here in our Lodge if we all chip in and show support. The efforts of our membership who continue to support our lodge and the many activities and charities which continue to encourage my belief in our Lodge, and causes hope in me that it inspires you as well.
This is your Lodge, our Lodge. Come on down and enjoy a meal, a meeting or just say “howdy” and enjoy a beverage and some camaraderie, and pitch in and help out on any number of our committees as you can.
Fred J. Duffey, Exalted Ruler
