Exalted Rulerís Message

It seems like yesterday that I stepped out to take the leadership role in our Lodge. On April 1st, I will return to the ranks after a monumental year.

Although I stood behind the podium, rapped the gavel and tried to make the best decisions possible, it was you the members that made things happen. From our day-to-day operations, through our events, fundraisers and our continuing efforts to help those less fortunate, it is YOU that keeps us #1 in Pennsylvania and on the sort list of the most progressive Lodges in Elkdom. Congratulations and thank you for everything you did this year.

As in any group, there are some that do more than others, but if you are only able to pay your dues, patronize the social quarters and help out once a year, YOU ARE AN ASSET TO US. Anything beyond that is a plus and very much appreciated.

When you look in the mirror each morning to either shave or put on your makeup, your involvement with the Elks will make you a little prouder of the face looking back at you.

April 7th is the Inaugural Dinner for next yearís team. As seating is limited, be sure to get your tickets early.

In closing, let me remind you that our goal is to make each year better than the previous one. Iíll be back to help. How about you?


Well it is that time of year! Your lodge dues are due by March 31st. This would be a great time for you to send in your donations to Elks national Foundation and Home Services. Your new membership card will be placed behind the bar unless you send me a self addressed stamped envelope. Please do not wait until the last minute to pay and remember that your daily pill will not be in the barrel until you have your new membership card in your hand.
