Exalted Ruler              Troy Asher                                Convention in Portland, Oregon, with a new perspective on

Lecturing Knight        Chuck Mitchell                                

Esquire                  Brian Lentsch                                This year, Elks gave 2.294 million dollars in scholarships to 500

                                           There were the two first place winners from the Hoop Shoot contest at the 
Trustee 5 year           Harry Hopton      convention.  We met the 8‐9 year old boy winner, Oakley Baker, and the 8‐9 year old girl 
Trustee 4 year              Dick Law       winner, Tommi Olson.  Baker shot an amazing 25/25 and then 5/5 in the shoot off.  Olson 
Trustee 3 year              Don Ireton     shot 24/25.  Baker and Olson both won the Getty Powell Award for the highest scoring

                                           The business sessions were at the Portland Convention Center, just a few blocks from the 
              Honor Roll                   hotel.  I and several other Elks took the light rail train at no cost.  The meetings were long 
              2009 - 2010                  and sometimes boring.  There was an agenda, but even so, the presentations and 
Elk of the Year              Dick Law      discussions ran over the allotted time.  Several committee reports took longer than

                                           On Monday July 6, all delegates attending the business session received a pamphlet on

                                         One certain thing in the fashion world is change. We are constantly being bombarded
                                         with new fashion ideas from music, videos, books, and television.

    Cultural icons have always influenced what we're wearing, but so have political figures and royalty. Newspapers and
    magazines report on what Hillary Clinton wears. The death of Diana, the Princess of Wales, was a severe blow to the high
    fashion world, where her clothes were daily news. Fashion is revealing. Styles show who you are, but they also create
    stereotypes and distance between groups. Acceptance or rejection of a style is a reaction to the society we live in. Fashion
    is a language which tells a story about the person who wears it.
