                             Sunday December 4TH
       The Waterbury Lodge of Elks will hold its annual Memorial Service in loving memory
of Lodge members who passed away during the past year on Sunday, Dec. 4, at 11 a.m. in the
Lodge Room. It is an Elks tradition that the first Sunday in December be set aside to honor
our departed members. Now it is our turn as brother and sister Elks to answer the call for our
departed friends and their families by coming together in remembrance of their souls,
signifying the true spirit of Elkdom.
      Music for the service will be provided by the Valley Chordsmen.
Please join the Lodge officers in the Lodge Room for an altar service in memory of our
departed members.
      All families, friends and relatives are invited. Brunch will be served following the service.
 Let us not forget, living or dead, an Elk is never forgotten.
                      FOREVER IN OUR HEARTS

            Once again our Lodge is Adopting a Platoon in an effort to send support, snacks and much needed personal care
   items to our troops deployed outside of the USA and we encourage members to support their fighting men and women
   deployed overseas in these dangerous times. The most frequent response we get from the "boots on the ground" is that
   receiving mail from the home front is a huge morale boost!
            Suggested items are as follows and can be found on the "shoebox" cartons. Items will be collected until November
   30th in boxes stationed in the Rathskeller. Monetary donations will also be accepted at the bar to help defray postage cost. We
   need your help to continue the much needed support of our brave men and women who sacrifice so much to keep us safe
   and free! Until they all come home...........Elks care...Elks share.

                              Most stories of Thanksgiving history start with the harvest
                          celebration of the pilgrims and the Native Americans that took
                          place in the autumn of 1621. Although they did have a three-day
    feast in celebration of a good harvest, and the local natives did participate, this "first
    thanksgiving" was not a holiday, simply a gathering. There is little evidence that this
    feast of thanks led directly to our modern Thanksgiving Day holiday. Thanksgiving can,
    however, be traced back to 1863 when Pres. Lincoln became the first president to
    proclaim Thanksgiving Day. The holiday has been a fixture of late November ever

          ery        one!
 Hello Ev                      Emblem Topics
         The leaves are turning colors and the air is getting brisk – it’s FALL! Last
 chance to get our exercise in by raking leaves and sprucing up the outside of our
 homes to get ready for winter…..burrrrrrrr! However, before we hibernate for the
 cold winter months we have some work to do.
 November 9th is our regular Emblem Club meeting and also our Memorial Service
 to honor our deceased members. This is the meeting where we’ll be asking for donations of food and/or funds
 to assist us in preparing food baskets for Thanksgiving. Please remember, we may not be rich, but we have
 more than most, so give what you can.
         Friday, November 11th, some of our Emblem ladies will be on hand to assist our Waterbury Elks on the
 Green to pay tribute to our Veterans. On Saturday, November 13th we have our 2nd State Meeting in
 Middletown, CT. This meeting also hosts the Christmas Bazaar tables, lots to see, creative ideas for the holidays
 etc. We’d like to see a nice group from Waterbury represented at the meeting, so let’s start carpooling; anyone
 needing a ride can contact me.
         Wednesday, December 14th will host our Christmas Party, in lieu of our regular meeting, to be held at
 Bacco’s in Waterbury, more info to come.

                           An Elks foursome of Bill Ward, Mary Hullstrunk, Art "Scott" Galloway and Sharyn Leonard got
                         together for a bowling date on Oct. 1 at Perillo's Bowl-O-Drome. Mary, who has a 43.0 average in the
                         Monday Night Women's League, rolled a 117 game that brought Scott to his knees and he injured his
                         left knee in the process, so much so that he had to be helped to his car. However, Scott, the trooper
                         that he is, recovered in time to buy hot dogs that the vacationing Charlie Simpson forgot to order
                         (that's another story) and prepare them in the Rathskeller the following day. . . It was nice to see
                         Jim "The Waxer" Cardinale at the Elks' annual clambake on Sept. 18. Jim was visiting from his West
                         Palm Beach, Fla., home and appeared to have a good time seeing his old friends. . . The Thursday Night
Golf League saw its year-end outing at the Orange Hills Golf Club Sept. 23 wiped out by rain, but the golfers still enjoyed
their annual awards banquet at the Lodge that evening. The final league standings, though, beg for an answer. How could a
physical specimen and gym teacher in Scott Lund and an accomplished senior golfer like Tom Crean finish last in the league,
four points behind the next worst teams. Either Scott is not eating his Cheerios or Tom is still playing with shoe horns in
his golf spikes. . . Speaking of the league, its directors made a noble gesture in renaming the circuit after one of its longtime
members. The league will now be called the William F. Derwin Golf League. Congratulations, Bill! . .
   The quintet of Lynn Connolly, Tom and Wanda Reiff and Tom and Jodi Sanchez was quite impressed with itself after
competing in the Bowling 4 Babies charity event on Oct. 16 at Lakewood Lanes. All five bowlers posted scores over 100 and
enjoyed themselves immensely. Plans are in the works to have a charity event for Babies With Wings in November 2012
featuring Tom's band Crosseyed Cat. . . Some 60 riders with 40 bikes participated in the second annual Breast Cancer Run
on Oct. 16 with proceeds benefiting the Harold Leever Cancer Center in Waterbury. The group was treated to a delicious
pork dinner prepared by the House Committee upon their return to the Lodge. . . As if there was not enough going on that
day, the Lodge played host to members of the Improved and Benevolent Order of Elks that evening in the Rathskeller.
Several members of the IBPOE were on hand to enjoy our hospitality. . . Scott Lund Sr. is off to quite a start in the Men's
Bowling League. He's already had high series of 426 and 428 in consecutive weeks and added a 176 high single. George
Heilman is also garnering attention after a 199 single and 412 series. . . House Committee chairman Bill Gannon has decided
again installing a wooden dance floor in the Rathskeller. He's saying that if the Elks dancers are light on their feet, they
         could dance on anything. Does that include poles? . . More next month.

The Honda motorcycle rider was travelling at approximately 85mph.
                                                ELKS CALL

The VW driver was talking on a cell phone when she pulled out from a side street, apparently not
seeing the motorcycle. The rider's reaction time was not sufficient enough to avoid this accident.

The car had two passengers and the bike rider was found INSIDE the car with them.
The Volkswagen actually flipped over from the force of impact and landed 20 feet from where the
collision took place.

All three involved (two in the car and the bike rider) were killed instantly.

This graphic demonstration was placed at the Motorcycle Fair by the Police and Road Safety

Pass this on to car drivers or soon to be new drivers, or new motorcycle owners AND ESPECIALLY

                    A picture is worth a thousand words.

                                      Save a life!
Stop talking on mobile phones and Texting while trying to drive.
         The life you save may be your own..... or mine...
