The State President’s Motto:
“”ELKDOM” it is in giving, that we receive.”
The State President’s Monthly Message:
I hope your August went well. September looks to being a busy month. Many of our Lodges have fundraisers scheduled in support of our programs for this upcoming month. Thank you all for your hard work and success in these programs.
I want to start out by wishing a speedy recovery to our Grand Exalted Ruler Bruce Hindley. GER Hindley suffered a head injury a couple of weeks ago as many of you heard, and is now home recovering. Our thoughts and prayers go to him from the great members of the Arizona Elks Association.
Now, on to what’s up in Arizona. We are only 6 weeks away from the mid-year convention October 14th – 15 – 16th. Please get your registration forms mailed in to PSP/Meetings Committee Chairman Lee Schwein ASAP. The deadline is September 20th 2022 to have your paperwork in to Lee. Exalted Ruler’s, please remind your Leading Knight, Secretary, and Chairman of the Board, that they also are required to attend the convention and meetings. The dress code for all meetings is as usual, business casual. NO SHORTS!! Dispensation requests for required officers who need to be excused from attending the convention, must submit by email a short letter to my office asking for the dispensation and the reason for it.
AEA morning sessions will begin promptly at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
On a fun note…..
This convention will have several prize giveaways during both the Saturday and Sunday meetings. The holders of the winning tickets drawn can select the gift of their choice that are on display. Tickets will be given at the door only to those who attend the meetings. And, tickets are absolutely FREE!! This is Kathy’s and my way of saying thank you to all of you for your dedication to the order and taking your time and resources to come to this convention. We truly appreciate all of you.
Also, on Friday night, the welcome dinner theme is…. A Halloween costume party . So, over the next few weeks get your costume ready to go. There will be Prizes for the best individual costume and the best couple’s costume. The official costume judges are the 4 State Vice Presidents. (I’m told they do accept bribes). We will have live non-stop music and a dance floor set up for those of you that want to twirl your “ghoul” around. No costume? Your casual dress is welcome.
Major Projects and the Steele Research team will be giving a presentation on Sunday that every Elk should hear. It will be very informative and a presentation all Elks will be proud of. The discussion will cover our 30 years with Steele, their Pediatric Research and our new COVID-19 research program.
Also, on Sunday our Exalted Rulers March for major projects will take place. These donations that are given that day provide us the funds needed to support both the Steele Center and the Jack Warter Jr. Youth Camp. Thank you very much to the entire Major Projects team for all that you do. And thank you all Arizona Elks for your involvement in our programs showing the world that:
