Erie Elks Lodge #67
Exalted Ruler’s Message
We have completed our expansion project at Lodge 67. The new offices, IT room, coolers, freezer, and storage area are all being utilized to the fullest. The Building Committee deserves a heartfelt thanks for their efforts. The committee includes: R. Scott Seib, chairman, Jim Law, Lucien Lawson, Roy Liberatore, and Fred Marchinetti. With your continuing support of our lodge, we were able to complete the project without incurring any debt. The improvements you have made possible will give us the opportunity to better serve you both fraternally and socially. Plans are in process for exterior improvements once the weather breaks.
Laurie is accepting dues payments and reinstatements. Please don’t wait till the end of March to remit same as this puts a major strain on her. She’s only one person.
Tim Parker and Doug Miller are still looking for help to round out the team for the Gun Raffle. If you can spare a little time on February 25th, please, let them know so they can make station assignments.
Lodge 67 is on the move. What can you offer to keep the momentum going?
