Be An Elk Every Day!!
The State President’s Monthly Message:
Happy Holidays Arizona Elks,
The season of giving is now upon us and my update for this month will focus on the first cardinal principal of our Order – “Charity”. As the Holiday season approaches, I am pausing for a moment to reflect on the many ways the individual Elks and Lodges across our State work to lessen the burdens of those among us in need. We demonstrate the generous and charitable spirit of the great heart of Elkdom within our membership by:
- Charitable giving to children and families in need,
- Supporting programs and providing drug awareness resources as well as scholarships to develop and foster talents of the next generation,
- Honoring our commitment to veterans,
- Supporting needs in our local communities, and
- Assisting those affected by natural disaster
These good works, given from the heart, throughout the year take on special emphasis during the Season of Giving. The boundless charity of our programs demonstrates that selfless giving as nothing out of the ordinary for us as Elks – because for us, this spirit of giving is the very essence of Elkdom.
Even as the Eve of Christmas approaches there remains strife throughout the world, but for us we see a brightness and a happiness in the hearts and souls of people throughout our great State, placed there by the goodness and generosity of our works of charity. Our individual yearning is for peace and prosperity this season of Christmas, and for us there is greater hope and a greater love of man because of our charitable foundations.
Quote for the Month – “We make a living by what we get but we make a life by what we give.” Winston Churchill
Remember – Grand Lodge Mandated Memorial Services will be performed at each Lodge on Sunday, December 2, 2018.
I know that you are working hard to keep my promise of +2 in membership, ENF per capita state-wide at $10.00 and growing our lodges. Let me know how I can help.
2019 is fast approaching and Hoop Shoot season is upon us. I look forward to seeing you cheering on our “kids” at the District Shoots. We have so much work to do and I am proud to be working along-side and with you.
As your President and First Lady, Deb and we wish you and your family a blessed and joyous Christmas and a prosperous, safe and Happy New Year.
“BE AN ELK EVERYDAY”
