Howdy from the Chair of Justice, I hope everyone is well as we head into the lovely month of October.
Cooler weather is upon us and is welcome in my opinion. Everyone be on the lookout for more information on the Elks auction coming up October 16. It will be a good one. I want to commend everyone on their generosity and attendance for Dr. Bressler‘s Auction and Dinner. It definitely shows what true rocks stars are, there for the ones that need us and always ready to lend a hand.
I look forward to seeing everyone down to Lodge for all of the coming events. Stay just and healthy.

This year has gone by so fast. We are closing in on fall, the leaves are changing color and the temperature is getting cooler. People are thinking about traveling to a warmer area. Here at the lodge, we are gearing up for the annual lodge charity auction scheduled for October 16, 2021. Donation items would be gladly accepted. Please drop them off at the lodge.
I want to thank everyone who donated items for auction, or money to the Scott Bressler benefit auction on September 11, 2021. The event was a huge success, with more than 200 people in attendance. If you were in attendance, you got to see Dr. Scott Bressler in person.
Our following event, the Elks National Foundation Dinner on September 18. 2021 was a wonderful success. We served 148 ribeye steaks, baked potatoes, rolls, and salads. Everyone listened to, and danced to the music of a local band called “Straightaway”.
We enjoyed the company of our local members, as well as members from Weiser, ID., and Rapid City, S.D. I personally want to thank all the volunteers who sold tickets, cooked steaks, served food, took tickets, and set-up or cleaned-up.
Plus a special “Thank You” to Mr. Jose Nava and the Young Marines for helping us with table duties. Last but not least, I want to thank Each and Every member for being a part of the greatest charitable organization in the world “The Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks” and Caldwell Elks Lodge #1448.
Remember “The faults of our Members we write upon the sand, their virtues upon the tablets of love and memory.”
With Brotherly Love,
