The State President’s Monthly Message:
Well, here we are in the final stretch of our Fraternal year and things have gotten a little better. I hope that everyone is trying to stay safe and healthy as possible. As of this time the restrictions and the guidelines from our State Government, local county, and city restrictions and guidelines are still in effect. So, we are extremely limited as to what we can or can not do as an organization. Our State Meetings Chairman Past State President Lee Schwein and his committee have been in constant contact with the hotel, but the possibility of having an annual convention in May does not look hopeful. The hotel is under the same restrictions as every business with limited number of people in one location, skeleton staffing, and basic menus. We will research everything and look at every possible solution that may be presented to us and if there is any way possible to have a convention we will certainly do our best.
Incoming Exalted Rulers, by now you have received your registration form and the information letter from PSP Jerry Grimes, who along with his wife Linda are our Grand Lodge Headquarters Committee for Arizona, about attending the GL Convention in Tampa Florida starting on July 4th 2021, please fill out this form and return it as soon as possible. They will normally hold a number of rooms for all the Exalted Rulers, Ritual Teams, etc., but they still need your returned form with deposit right away, also the check from each lodge for the hospitality room at GL. PSP Jerry and Linda would normally hold a meeting at the AEA convention but since that is in a limbo state they are relying on each individual ER and lodge to complete and return the forms. Please try to help and comply with their instructions.
I was very honored to attend the North/West District Ritual competition held at Sun City Lodge # 2559, and the East/South District Ritual competition held at Tucson East Lodge # 2532 all total there were seven Lodges competing. I would like to express my sincere and most gracious “THANK YOU” to the Exalted Rulers and Officers who competed in those competitions. To witness, along with other members in attendance, this type of commitment, was absolutely amazing. I know that membership is the bloodline of Elkdom, but I believe Ritual is the heart of Elkdom. To my observation there were no losers, only winners in every sense of the word. My congratulations to all the teams, coaches, candidates, and the Ritual committee for having a very well-run Ritual contest. Looking forward to visiting a few more lodges before the end of the year, so please stay safe, healthy, and happy.
God Bless our troops, God Bless our First Responders, and God Bless America.
