ANNUAL MEMORIAL SERVICE
Sunday December 4TH
The Waterbury Lodge of Elks will hold its annual Memorial Service in loving memory

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
All families, friends and relatives are invited. Brunch will be served following the service.

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.

The Thanksgiving Story
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

MUSINGS & DRIVEL
By Jerry Di Pietro
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.
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
EVERYONE YOU KNOW WHO HAS a mobile PHONE!!!!!
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...
