The State President’s Monthly Message:
My Fellow Arizona Elks,
As November ends and December begins, we find ourselves in the midst of the holiday season. This is truly the time of year when our cardinal principle of Charity best shines. We begin December with our mandated observance of Memorial Day. Each Lodge will be focused on this day on the 1st Sunday of the month. Let us all make sure that we make the observance of this day special for all our members and especially for the families of our deceased members.
During the balance of the month let us all work hard on finding ways of charitably donating to our communities. This not only helps us leave the woodpile taller than we found it, but also exhibits the true meaning of our principle of Charity. Whether our efforts involve the Christmas Shopping Spree, delivery of Christmas Baskets, Christmas gifts and/or visitations to Veterans, or any of the many other exercises in which are Arizona lodges are involved, exercise of our cardinal principle makes the season especially meaningful not only to all those who receive, but also to all of us who will give.
We also know that, for most of our lodges, December marks the beginning of the Hoop Shoot season. Most lodges will begin their local shoots during this month in preparation of sending candidates on to district competition in January. This is another way of giving back to the youth in our communities and I urge you all to explore ways you can assist your Hoop Shoot directors in the production of these shoots in your individual lodges.
I need to spend a moment on unfinished business. Last month we told you of Rick Gaithen’s Community Charitable Donation Banner project. As you will recall, this project will gather historical information on a Lodge by Lodge basis for charitable contributions made by the Lodge to its local community. We alerted you to the fact that the AEA would be covering the cost of these banners for each of our 43 lodges. I’m proud to say that the banners have been completed and each Lodge will be receiving their banner in the next couple of weeks. Dianna Adams and her vice-chairs on the Membership Committee will be handling the distribution and each Lodge should be receiving their banner shortly. It is strongly suggested upon receipt that each Lodge display their banner in a prominent and visible location on their building. We believe this will be an excellent exhibition in Public Relations and could be an additional shot-in -the-arm for your membership campaign.
In closing this month, in addition to participating in our charitable endeavors, please enjoy the spirit of the holiday season with your friends and especially with your families. Also, please accept Mary’s and my wishes for you and your families to enjoy a blessed Christmas and a prosperous New Year.
Until our visit in January, keep in mind that Elks are Patriotic Americans and many thanks to all for all that you do.
“ELK’S ARE PATRIOTIC AMERICANS!”
