Exalted Ruler's Message

November 2021

The leaves on the trees have turned which means fall is here. The cool mornings are my favorite time of the year. November is the perfect month to show Elks Care – Elks Share.

We begin our month with the officers headed to Rupert for Winter Training Session. This is the time for lodge officers from around the state to get to know each other and share ideas. There is a wealth of knowledge that comes together to help one another at these workshops.

Our first event is the Annual Veterans Ceremony in front of Caldwell Veterans Hall November 11th at 11:00am. We urge everyone to come down and join as our community and Elks together say, “Thank You” to all Veterans. So long as there are veterans, the Elks will never forget them.

One of the largest events of the year is coming November 20th – WESTERN NIGHT. Strut your best western attire and win the Best Dressed Award. Tickets are available from any officer and at the Lodge. Tickets will be sold up to Wednesday, the 17th which will allow adequate ordering of those mouth watering steaks we all love.

With changing seasons also comes changes within our lodge. Hours for the Lounge will be 3:00pm – 10:00pm Monday through Saturday beginning November 8th. Lunches and Friday night dinners will no longer be served. Prime Rib Dinner will continue on the last Friday of the month in December.

Fraternally Yours,

Lynn Bittick,
