As always, I continue to hope that you are all safe, in good health and good spirits and making the best of these extraordinary times and taking stock in the truly important things in life. The officers and trustees will continue hold weekly food events that offer a variety of different menus. Attendance and feedback from our members remains positive. Details for these events will be continue to 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. The Lodge will continue to be open for Sunday Browns games. We continue to look for members to volunteer and sponsor their own food event. A “special” thanks to all that volunteered and to put on a successful Walter “Joe” McMannus C.P. Golf Outing. The weather was outstanding and good times and fellowship prevailed throughout the day. All the proceeds from the event went to support C.P. I would be remiss if I did not acknowledge and thank Dave Noren and Kaaren Sand for their involvement and support of this event for twenty-four years! There are a number of special messages listed throughout the November Echo so please look at them as they pertain to all Lodge members and their guests. A friendly reminder that 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. Simply stated, wear a mask to protect those around you. 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
