The State President’s Motto:

The State President’s Monthly Message: 

August 2020

Members all:

I hope this finds everyone safe, healthy, and happy. We are entering the last days of the summer months and things have not improved. We still find ourselves playing catch up or struggling to stay afloat. As I traveled throughout the state and talk to members about the situation we are in I keep hearing the same things. Mostly they are concerned with the Lodges financial position, membership, safety, and  the well-being of their members.

All of these are important concerns and rightfully so. Some feel their Lodges are being pulled in many different directions at the same time. There are many things that your Lodge can undertake to help ease the crisis. Please remember that help is only a phone call away. We are here to help anyone, anytime, anywhere. We are in this together and we find our way out of this crisis together.

To update everyone on what has happened around the State and the Association.

With the cancellation of the Grand Lodge Session on July 8th the Grand Exalted Ruler for the year 2020-2021 Paul R Ryan of Willmar Mn Lodge # 952 was elected by Resolution as adopted by the Corporation. Also, on that same day via a conference call our four District Deputy Grand Exalted Rulers were installed by PGER Louis J. Grillo. I am proud to announce they are as follows in no certain order Janet Leuer, North District Jerome Lodge # 1361, Roger Ehrlich, West District from Sun City Lodge # 2559, Ralph Henderson, East District from Apache Junction Lodge # 2349, and Richard Ross, South District from Douglas Lodge # 955. They are all deserving Elks who have earned their positions by hard work and dedication to the order. When you see them please extend a hardy congratulations? They have also offered their help in anyway possible within their districts, please reach out to them

We are meeting with the Doubletree by Hilton hotel staff and try to reach a solution for our mid-year convention in October, At this time it is still being scheduled so we must make plans to proceed with it, We will keep you in the loop as to what we are planning. Please be patient. Also, our annual golf tournament is still on for September 12 and 13th. Please sign up to play or to sponsor a tee box or donate something.

I wish everyone to stay safe and healthy during these difficult times. God Bless our troops, God Bless our First Responders, and God Bless America.
