The State President’s Monthly Message:
My Fellow Arizona Elks,
Welcome to January and the start of a new calendar year. It is my fondest hope that the holidays brought you a Merry Christmas and a happy and prosperous New Year. It was indeed inspiring to witness all of our lodges participating in the charitable and community endeavors that so define us as Elks. The smiling faces on the children during the shopping sprees, the joy on the faces of the families receiving Christmas baskets, the expression of delight in the faces of our many veterans who had no other family members with whom to share the season, the community celebrations in the hometowns of many of our lodges and the many other activities of which you all engaged make us all feel proud as Elks.
As we move forward into a new calendar year, there are a couple of areas we want to keep in focus. First, is the prominent display of our individual Lodge charity banners. By now most, if not all, of you should have your individual charity banners delivered. If you have not yet seen the same, please contact your district membership vice chair to ascertain the status of delivery. As I have stressed previously our goal is to have each Lodge prominently display this banner on its building or exterior of its premises. The message these banners carry is both a strong public relations statement and should also be a positive memorandum to inspire interest in membership.
Secondly, as proud Arizona Elks we need to do a much better job in assisting PGER Mike Luhr and Grand Lodge in fundraising for the restoration of our Pearl Harbor Memorial. If you attended last year’s Grand Lodge Convention, you will recall Brother Mike Luhr’s description of the state of disrepair of this memorial and the need for its restoration. Toward that end, Grand Lodge has established a goal of $1 per member in an attempt to raise $783,000 for this effort. To date, Arizona Elks have raised $175 for this cause. Not only is this far short of the $1 per member goal, but also, I’m sure you’ll agree, is paltry in comparison to the generosity of Arizona Elks. I urge you all to consider a private donation to the fund and encourage all lodges to consider fundraising endeavors to further the amounts that Arizona Elks can donate to the cause. Further information concerning the details of this program can be obtained at elks.org and donations can be made through the Elks National Foundation at the following link enf.elks.org/phc.
In closing this month, let’s all of us take a moment now and forward our donation to the fund. Further, let us focus on creative fundraisers within the Lodge and yet again show the generosity for which Arizona Elks are so well known.
Until our visit in February, keep in mind that Elks are Patriotic Americans and many thanks to all for all that you do.
“ELK’S ARE PATRIOTIC AMERICANS!”
