From the Station of Justice
Greetings from the Station of justice!
May is such a beautiful time of year. As spring returns and brings with it a time of renewal; what went to sleep in the winter comes back and revives nature and gives us hope. With the past year taking a toll on many of our friends, family and members the fellowship of Elks is ever so important. We must remember to to help and give of ourselves to those in need.
Also, with the month of May comes that special time to honor and celebrate the mothers and grandmothers in our lives. If you haven’t made plans, a beautiful way to show tribute is to bring them to the lodge on Sunday, May 9th, at 11:00am for our “Tribute to Mother’s Ceremony”. Afterwards enjoy some lunch.
As a band of brothers and sisters, we stick together! Please keep your calendar open in late June and plan to attend the Benefit Dinner and Auction for Dr. Scott Bressler. Please call the lodge if you would like to help, donate auction items or sell tickets. Your support will be greatly appreciated.
Come on down to the lodge and greet the new members and reconnect with your buddies.

For lodge night May 13, 2021, I have invited our six Most Valuable Student (MVS) applicants to the lodge to honor for Youth Appreciation Night.
Also this month, please remember our Active Duty Military, Veterans, and First Responders on Armed Forces Day – May 15, 2021.
Last but not least please remember all of our departed Family and Elks members on Memorial Day - May 31, 2021. Use this day to reflect upon our motto - “The faults of our Members we write upon the sand, their virtues upon the tablets of love and Memory”.
