                              school, this could only mean that we our rapidly approaching the fall        Esteemed Leading Knight
                              months. With that in mind, it also means that our Lodge is going to con-      CHARLES HALL

                                        Now, I would like to recap a few of the summer activities that     Esteemed Lecturing Knight
took place and all of these events would not be possible without the help of our dedicated Elk Mem-         DANIEL SCHMIDT

           On July 14th the Lodge hosted another terrific ―Cooks Night Out‖, which was very well at-       Treasury
tended. We also hosted 8 Veterans and special guest. The group ReCreations entertained every-               ANGELA HALL
one with a few songs.                                                                                      Trustee Emeritus
           The week of July 17th — July 21st, myself, Angela, Katelin and Austen Hall, Ron and Jean         FRANK L. MORRIS
Lamot, Mike Greene and Janet Sullivan attended the National Elks Convention in Phoenix, AZ. With
                                                                                                           Five-Year Trustee
that came a few meetings that took place and numerous changes that are going to be accruing
throughout Elkdom. There were 36 Resolutions in all that were voted upon. On September 1st, we              FRED MORRIS, PER
will be voting on some of the changes that pertain to our Lodge. These Resolutions are posted in           Four-Year Trustee
this Jolly Cork and are also posted at the Lodge. Our new GRAND EXALED RULER David R. Carr                  MARIE WALBURN
was installed into office as well as our new Southwest District Deputy Mary Cardinal-Vogt.
                                                                                                           Three-Year Trustee
           On July 30th, the House Committee, with help from the Trustees & Pat Goodridge held our
Annual Crab Feast, which a fun time was had by all that attended. There were plenty of crabs and            JACK GIOVE
beer to go around, even when cleaning up there were two members shh! (Fred Morris and Dan                  Two-Year Trustee
Stincomb) that didn’t want anything to go to waste. Those Crabs didn’t stand a chance with those            ROBERT MORRIS
guys eating. Also, during that time the raffle for the Kenmore Grill was pulled and the lucky winner
                                                                                                           One-Year Trustee
was Roy Miller; however, Mr. Miller generously donated the grill to the lodge to be used for future
events.                                                                                                     RALPH LAMOT
           I would like to congratulate the following members. Elk of the Month for June 2011, Past        Lodge Esquire
State President/Past Exalted Ruler Ron Lamot. During this month Ron has continued to show what              SCOTT TAYLOR
Elkdom is all about with his continued support and hard work for our Lodge. He continues to step in        Inner Guard
to help the officers and members of the Lodge, has organized the 1st of many Children’s Car Wash
                                                                                                            ROY MILLER
which raised just shy of $400. He has helped organize bake sales at our Thursday night dinners in
which the profits from both events go towards the youth activities. The Elk of the Month for July          Chaplain
2011 is Judy Carignan. She is a very active member on the House Committee and with that she                 DIANE BENSON
takes on her responsibility very serious and all her hard work around the Lodge shows. Judy is al-         Tiler
ways willing to help out wherever needed at an event or just tidying up around the Lodge. She is
                                                                                                            MORRIS HALL
constantly on her feet at an event making sure that everything is going smoothly. Thank you both
for all your hard work, our Lodge can only continue to be better with members like yourselves!!

and join us, could you send us a donation, anything you can
give will help.

silent auctions. So if you have an item you would like to give
us please drop it off at the Lodge and mark it for the Charity
