From the Secretary’s Desk
I would like to give a big, heartfelt thank you and show of appreciation to all the members and guests that supported Home Services on St Patrick's Day! We had a very successful day and could not have done it without all your help. If you have not already paid your dues for this year, please be aware that.
DUES WERE DUE BY MARCH 31ST, 2018
Your prompt attention to this matter is greatly appreciated!
Exalted Ruler’s Message
Spring is on our doorstep. This is a time of new beginnings and renewal. As I embark upon my journey as Exalted Ruler, I want each of you to know that I will do the best job possible and will make sure our lodge continues to be a place of friendship, hospitality, and good will. In our 150th anniversary year, I am very mindful of our principles; charity, justice, brotherly love, and fidelity.
I have put together a house committee that stands ready to work to keep our lodge in good stead both physically and financially. Please know that you can approach any one of the house committee members or me if you have issues or concerns. You can count on having a willing listener. Keep in mind that there is a lot of hard work by lodge employees and volunteers that goes on behind the scene to keep our lodge doors open. I urge each of you to consider involving yourself with one of our lodge projects. Check the bulletin boards and the newsletter on a regular basis to see what is coming up.
I do believe our Elks Lodge 67 is a community of caring and giving individuals. I recently was at a district meeting at the Titusville Elks Lodge. I was impressed with the caring and sharing that happens among other Elks Lodges. When you become an Elks member you truly have a large supportive “family” behind you. It is impressive how much we can achieve together not only for our lodge but for our community.
Thank you to Sue Ozimek, Sherry Respecki, and Millie Roth for coordinating the Bingo on Sunday, March 11th. A special Thank you also to Rich Ozimek for being our "Bingo Caller" and to JoJo Puskus and Marge DelPorto for selling tickets. All their efforts made this a very successful event!

The 2018 Gun Raffle Committee would especially like to thank our wonderful hard-working group of volunteers for all their efforts before, during and after this year’s event. Without your energy and loyal support of this Gun Raffle, we would not have had such a great outcome both physically and financially. We were able to raise just shy of $38,000 this year, thanks to your support. With the money raised, we will be able to contribute to the Building Fund and the Veterans Committee. We would like to extend a special thank you to all the sponsors that helped make the gun raffle a huge success. If you see any of these sponsors, make sure to thank them for their contributions. Congratulations to all our winners, we hope everyone enjoyed the day. Once again, we thank you and we look forward to working with you on next year’s gun raffle. If you have any suggestions to help make next year’s event even better, please feel free to leave us a note, while it is fresh in your mind. Our contact info is listed; you can email either of us or drop off a letter behind the bar.
