As we move into the fall season, I continue to
hope that you are all safe, in good health and good
spirits. While we all continue to be impacted by the
pandemic we are slowly getting back to some
semblance of normalcy; The Indians are in the post
season, the Browns are back and Ohio State football
will be returning in October.
The Lodge continues to offer food service on a limited basis that
ensures the offerings are both safe and cost effective and the feedback
from our members remains positive. The officers and trustees have
started to hold weekly food events that will offer a variety of different
menus. Details for these events will be listed in the Echo, posted to our
Facebook page, website at https://elyriaelks.com, communicated via
email and posted throughout the Lodge as they become available. I
encourage you to plan on attending one of these food events and
support the Lodge. In addition the Lodge is open for Sunday Browns
We continue to review the hours of operation for the bar based on
member feedback and attendance patterns and will make and
communicate any changes that best serves our members.
A “special” thanks to the A.O.L. Committee for a successful “Reverse
Raffle” that was well attended. We all owe a debt of gratitude to this
group for all they do behind the scenes to make improvement to the
Lodge that benefits all of our members.
There are a number of special messages listed throughout the
October Echo so please look at them as they pertain to all Lodge
members and their guests.
As the weather gets cooler and we all begin to spend more time
inside we must continue to be vigilant with our safety precautions to
keep Elyria Elks Lodge 465 safe for our employees, members and their
guests. As always, please stay safe, look out for family, friends and
neighbors and know that you all remain in my thoughts and prayers. I
hope to see you all at the Lodge soon!
Fraternally Yours, Chuck Martin ER
