June is upon us and we will be heading down to the State Convention in Hyannis shortly. I would like to take this opportunity to remind all of the Delegates, as well as our PER’s, that there is a vote for the State Trustee Representative from the South District.
As far as local matters go, please remember that our Flag Day Ceremony will take place on June 14that 7pm. If you have not had a chance to see this ceremony, I really encourage you to come. It really is an inspiring event, with the Color Guard, The History of the Flag and most notably our local Kindergarten students belting out Patriotic Favorite tunes, a good time will be had by all.
I would like to continue to stress our ongoing theme of Volunteerism for this Fraternal year. The success of our Lodge is directly tied to the volunteers that help keep our kitchens going (Think Pizza on Tuesdays, Wednesday night suppers, Wing Thursdays, Friday night Suppers etc. –Yes every one of those people cooking are volunteers!). Can you imagine the growth we could achieveif we took that same approach to helping in our Community? I encourage you to inquire about the many programs we support, such as our Veterans meals, or especially our Youth programs to help support children and teens that might otherwise be forgotten. How many quality members might we attract by showing that as Elks, we really do care!? More>
