Jim’s Jibberish – December 2017
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR
Dear Members all,
As we begin the second half of our year, Jan and I have so many warm and everlasting memories from our Area 7 State visits to our many visits to Lodges in Arizona. We still have two Lodges remaining. Again the reports of your Vice Presidents have been thoughtful and constructive.
Thanksgiving has passed but it just reminds us of the work we all do in our communities, by contributing to local food banks and supporting the most in need in our cities and towns. Great work being done by the Best People On Earth.
I would be remiss if I didn’t mention another one of our Lodges in need of a special representative, this should never be necessary. As I have preached for the past two years, follow the statutes and stay out of trouble. All Lodges should just comply.
I will be asking members to serve as escorts for our May convention. This is a very important function and has always been one of Arizona’s greatest achievements in protocol.
Again, Jan will be asking for your support of her “Undies for Veterans” project. In October, this was a great success, it benefited Vets at the VA Hospitals and VA Homes state-wide. What a great way to show our respect for their commitment to our nation.
As Christmas, not Xmas, approaches, let us look at what we can do for the less fortunate. When you hear the Salvation Army bell ringing, do what you can to help. When your place of worship asks you to give, try to support their cause. Let’s us also remember, we are a guiding force in your community and we must lead by example. This will be a busy month for Elks Lodges, as Clothe-a-Child and Clothe-a-Veteran will be in full swing.
This month is also our remembrance of the Elks Memorial Service in honor of those who have passed, we will miss them.
As our Lodges have Christmas dinners and parties, please remember to ask for a designated driver in your group. We want everyone to have a safe holiday.
I want to take this opportunity to convey a Very Blessed Christmas and Holiday Season from Jan and I, along with our family to all of you and your families.
Until next issue, I remain
Jim Casacchia, President
