Hello fellow Elks. I am pleased to say I personally met the Grand Exalted Ruler. We shook hands, chatted a bit and he even signed my Membership card… it was very cool! Attending a District or State meeting is not only fun, but a great place to fellowship with other Elks, as well as voice your opinion and vote on presented issues. This lodge is your lodge. Take advantage of its benefits and you can be part of the change for the Advancement of the Lodge. Don’t forget the first Friday of each month is our monthly drawing. September 11th is always a somber day, but let’s get together for the Buckeyes first home game versus Oregon at Noon to kickoff Ohio State’s football season. This month our PLP, Parking Lot Party, is the same day as the Apple Festival, Saturday the 18th. Please be sure to enjoy both downtown Elyria festivities and stop on by the lodge to visit with new and old friends. We will have a live band, drinks and raffles in our main parking lot. We would love for many of you to join us – bring a friend, too! Our Advancement of the Lodge committee is putting on a Reverse Raffle on Friday, September 24th. The AOL works very hard to keep our lodge running smoothly so please come show your support. Our CP Golf Outing will take place this year on Sunday, September 26th. Let’s make it a good one and all get together to lose some balls in the woods. I will see you in the lodge.
Fraternally Yours, Bill Medlen II ER
