The State President’s Motto:
“ELK’S ARE PATRIOTIC AMERICANS!”
The State President’s Monthly Message:
My Fellow Arizona Elks,
Welcome to October. The cooling temperatures that we have been looking for appear to be becoming a reality, and the resulting change seems to be calling for the return of our snowbirds. Welcome home to them all.
Also, with the arrival of October comes the scheduling of our Association’s Mid-Year Convention. I sincerely invite all of you to attend and I look forward to seeing as many of you that can attend our sessions. Among the many informative workshops and committee reports that will be on display will be the Financial Reporting System workshop conducted by Charyll McKean and her committee. This workshop is a must for any of you that are involved in the conversion process in your lodges and will be very informative for any of you that would simply like to know more about this system.
Our membership challenges continue, however my compliments to the hard work of most of our lodges in working down our delinquent lists. As an Association, our delinquency rate continues to be below the national average, however a few of our lodges are actually above the same and we can do better. Our State Chair Dianna Adams and her vice- chairs continue to communicate with you regularly and stand ready to assist you in any way they can. As concerns new members, many of you have already initiated members to Grand Exalted Ruler Duitsman’s GER class. That drive continues through October and let’s see if all our lodges can initiate members to that class. I would again refer you to brother Rick Gathen’s Membership Corner on Elks.org. You will find many helpful and useful tools in that area.
By now all our lodges should have heard from our first lady concerning her goals for collecting articles and items for the Steel Research Center and the children at the hospital. One of the striking things that she found in visiting the research center is that our efforts have been largely devoted to the infant population. The older children in the hospital are all too often left out. Recognizing this fact and working with our Executive Director Katie Murdoch led to the specific listing of items she is hoping you can bring to the convention in October for delivery to the hospital. All efforts to help in this regard will be sincerely appreciated by the hospital in general and Mary and myself in particular.
This having been said, let us move through October. We look forward to our next visit and a report on the results of our convention. Many thanks to all of you for all that you do and until next month always remember: Elks are Patriotic Americans.
“ELK’S ARE PATRIOTIC AMERICANS!”
