Message from the Exalted Ruler
Hi Brothers and Sisters;
As January has come and gone, I anticipate the rest of our year will do the same. Time always flies by when youíre having fun! Great things happening in the Lodge this coming month.
I would like to thank everyone that came out to help with the District Hoop Shoot. We had a great turn out of local members, district members and kids. Everything ran smoothly and fun was had by all. A big congratulations to our local winner that is advancing to the State Shoot, Santana Valentine. Miss Valentine will represent us at the State Hoop Shoot on February 14th in Rio Rancho. Good luck Santana!
I would personally like to thank Brittany Lopez and Bianca Armijo-Garcia for cleaning and straightening out the back room. These two young ladies are two of the most energetic and motivating young women we have as members in the Elks, aside from being close to the youngest members. They both took on the challenge of cleaning out the kitchen storage area and nicely put everything in order. Neither were asked to do the deed but they stepped up and did it on their own. It looks very nice and I hope it can look this way all the time. Thank you ladies.
Aside from cleaning, they have also taken the task of planning out a breakfast to be held here at the Lodge. So letís help these movers and shakers with carrying out this great idea. If you would like to help with the breakfast that is being planned, please come by and meet with them to sign up and help. Check the calendar for the date of the breakfast. If you cannot help maybe you can come by and grab a plate to support the Lodge.
A big thank you to Yvonne Perales and crew for getting the dictionaries out to the third graders in the community. Dolores Teague did a tremendous job labeling them and getting them ready for delivery. Jerry Pingleton delivered to all schools including Columbus. A big thank you to them for getting this project completed.
Also, canít forget those that spend most of their time at the Lodge making it run smoothly. A big thank you to the bar staff for always being here and working hard, gaming crew (both bingo and gaming) and those that are behind the scenes carrying out the tasks to keep this Lodge moving forward! You all know who you are. Thank you!
Remember that election of officers will be the third week of this month. Hope to see everyone at the meetings! Come in to see what is going on in the Lodge. Remember what we do is for our community.
Yours in Elkdom,
George Torres PER
