The State President’s Monthly Message:
Fraternal Greetings Arizona Elks –
March is here – we’ll see if the old adage is true – “In like a Lion, out like a Lamb”. Lodge elections are over and it is exciting for our Lodges to be preparing for the start of a New Fraternal Year.
HAPPY NEW YEAR ARIZONA LODGES. It will be a time of renewing excitement and new commitments to our Order. Your new focus will be calling out our tenants of our Order. My article this month will focus on the tenant of Brotherly Love.
My quote of the month comes from Audrey Hepburn who once said, “As you grow older you will discover that you have two hands. One for helping yourself, the other for helping others”. To me these words exemplify Brotherly Love. Brotherly Love – is a noun indicating a kindly and lenient attitude toward people and it can be synonymous with benevolence as an inclination to do kind or charitable acts.
For the hard work of the subordinate Lodges during their 2018-2019 I give a hearty applause and my undying thanks for the brotherly love you have demonstrated doing charitable work for Elkdom every day. Your devotion to each other and our causes has been evident as I travel around the state on your behalf.
I am extremely proud of your ongoing work for the Veterans, Children and communities in our State and I challenge you to keep up the good work. I want to give a special thank you to all Arizona Elks for their ongoing support of the Hoop Shoot. I am looking forward to cheering them on at the Regional Hoop Shoot for Area 7 in Las Vegas, Nevada on March 9th. I believe we will have good representation moving on to the National Shoot in Chicago for this year.
In the March Grand Lodge Newsletter there is a reference to the ENF annual report named the “Mighty Army” – check it out for interesting news in the final report from Lou Sulsberger, Past Grand Exalted Ruler of our Order who is the ENF Board Chairman. The report is available at: https://www.elks.org/SharedElksOrg/enf/files/2018Chairmanletter.pdf
Now the broken record part – as usual I remind you of our goals for the coming year and we have one more month for the current officers to get us over the top – then the work transfers to new officer teams. Remember our goals are: (1) Growth in Membership, (2) Supporting our Lodges, and (3) Increasing support to the Elks National Foundation to $10.00 per member.
We are deep into the home stretch with one inning left. I expect each of you to continue reaching out to delinquent members with a phone call this month as we have a few short days to bring them back and get the delinquency down.
We still have lots of work to do and I am proud to be working beside and for you. Arizona Elks truly are the BPOE (Best People on Earth).
“BE AN ELK EVERYDAY”
