October 2019 Message from ER Jack Warf
My Fellow Elk Members:
In the spirit of Thanksgiving, appreciation and gratitude; it is a time to reflect on the bountiful blessings we have received in our lives. One act of kindness, generosity, or the reaching out to our neighbors in need makes the difference between one giving up, and one finding strength to carry on. It’s as simple as a smile, a pat on the back, or extending a hand that truly spotlights our value for humanity and trust in God. We continue to persevere in faith, trust and hope during difficult times; however, we are grateful for the opportunity to help out those in need through fundraisers, donations and various other means of giving. This year Thanksgiving and holiday season may seem a little more difficult for many to bear, in the face of all the California fires that have impacted countless Elk members, their families and friends....
Our Lodge members are the true hallmark of “Elks Care Elks Share”
I want to invite all Veterans to our yearly Veterans dinner and dance “Honoring our Veteran’s” night out. It is an incredible evening of sharing, comradery, and respecting those both deceased and alive who have given so much for our country. The sellout crowds each year enjoy excellent meals; the food is plentiful and delicious. The service, speakers, music and decorations make the event very special to all join those who wish to show their appreciation to our Veterans, especially if you are one! Wear your colors!
Your Lodge Officers will be attending the ELKS Mid-term Convention which includes training courses from 10/31-11/3.
Have you heard about our Monday night football party? You’ll find $2.00 beers and an excellent assortment of foods to enjoy. The attendance at this event is amazing!
I want to wish each and every one of you a blessed and safe Thanksgiving Holiday season. We are extremely grateful to all our Lodge Volunteers!!
