Elk members, spouses, and friends

Greetings from your Exalted Ruler. I hope you are having a wonderful summer. With Summer half behind us I hope you are able to spend some time with your family, your friends, and at the Lodge

Congratulations and thanks are due to our officers and our members during July and August with the absence of Judi, Robin, and Tommy. They are enjoying some well-deserved time off and we look forward to their return but in their absence the members here have stepped up and things are running as smoothly as possible. This is not to say they are not missed but we are working together to make the best of a rough situation.

Our lodge works together to make things work as well as any Lodge in the nation Our volunteers are among the best anyone could ask for.

The seafood dinners are always a big hit I hope you get a chance to enjoy them Our Blues and Jazz nights are the best any-one can put on Burger nights are hard to beat. Our Lodge is also hosting the Southeast District Gold Key Golf Outing again this year on August 24 There are opportunities to sponsor holes, sponsor carts any many other choices It's going to be a great time so make sure your foursome gets signed up in time

We are looking forward to District visitations in September from DDGER Penny Geishert and DVP Jay Erickson from our Lodge. I'm sure the Lodge will put its best foot forward welcoming these District Officers and show them what Plymouth-Ann Arbor Hospitality is all about.

There is only one meeting in August on the 28th and I hope to see you there and don't forget if you come to the Lodge regularly scheduled meetings the first drink after the meeting is on me. Enjoy your summer but don't forget the Lodge.

Regular meetings will resume in September and things will get back to normal. Don’t forget to welcome Judi, Robin, and Tommy back when you see them.

September also brings back school days for the youngsters in our community. Please be extra careful driving when school begins to make sure it’s as safe as possible for the kids.

I look forward to seeing you down at the Lodge

Why did I become an Elk? Someone asked me to join!!!

Fraternally,
