October Message from Exalted Ruler Dan Enright
Fall is now upon us. The forthcoming months ahead patiently await a seamless transition, as the weather cools and the leaves fall, children are back in school and the Holidays are fast approaching. It is surely a mystical time of the year.
On September 4th, the District Deputy Grand Exalted Ruler, William (Bill) C. Faubel, and his wife Marcie attended our Lodge for the annual DDGER Visitation. His comments and review of our Lodge was met with a round of applause, when he reported he was well pleased. Other dignitaries were delighted by the efforts of our Committee Chairs and Lodge members who continue to foster “Elks work” throughout our community. It was a great honor to represent the Lodge as your Exalted Ruler and to share all your “good works” with everyone present. A special thank you goes to Regina Stephens for her dedication and hard work in assembling the Committee Report binders.
We had a successful “Fabulous Fifties” dinner dance that many of you participated in last month. What a fun time it was to bring back the nostalgia of yesteryear. The decorations and ambiance were epic. The dinner was fantastic, topped offed with classic root beer floats and vintage music. It surely was a walk down memory lane for many of us. A sincere thank you to First Lady Elisa Enright (Host), Kathy Lincoln, and her entire kitchen crew, Leo our cook, Jack Warf -Leading Knight, Cherie Greeninger, (root beer floats) Charlene Buscaglia, Kathy Lopez-Loyal Knight (decorations), Jack Cummings—Lecturing Knight and his wife Monica, (set up and take down) Pauline Ross, Phyllis Grinstead, Sherry and Gina Phillipsen, Ginny Niemamn (servers) Roger Perry, (registration and ticket sales) and all those who contributed to an outstanding evening!
