From the Exalted Ruler

Can you believe the color of our greens?  It is amazing what fertilizing can do.  We golfers are thriving under Corey’s course maintenance and tournaments conducted by our outstanding golf committee.  I love driving in the parking lot and seeing virtually every green full.

Our past Exalted Rulers conducted Lodge and initiation of ten new members on June 10th.  Very pleased we are having some younger members getting involved.  Shout out to our membership committee Chair, Rich Gaylor, who has been so diligent in the investigations and membership interviews.  We are getting some excellent new members and I am looking forward to them getting involved in Lodge committees and activities.  We certainly need some “youngins” to take part.

At our June 24th Lodge meeting, I finally got to take the reins of our beloved Elks family.  I am very humbled and I didn’t have a heart attack, made it through with some hilarious missteps and Wayne was there to help me gavel the “right” rap number.  I think we all enjoyed getting back to business and had some laughter.  I invite one and all to come to Lodge so we can see your smiling faces.  Remember, we only have one meeting for July
and one for August.  And don’t miss our 4th of July Sole Survivor contests, Kristie Project Band, hot dogs and ice-cream, and the infamous golf cart decoration contest.  Bobbi is out for bear this year…. again. Come out and be with your Elks family and
celebrate the birth of this great nation.

From the Desk of the Secretary


“The United States is the only country with a known birthday….There is no ‘Republican,’no’ Democrat,’ on the Fourth of July—all are Americans”

This was taken from an oration by James G. Blaine on Independence Day.  It is passed time we all started to
remember this. Our country cannot survive with an “us or them, my way or the highway” attitude.  This applies at the national level, state and city level.  If we are going to survive as a country that continues to thrive and set an example as a free nation, ruled by the people, we must re-learn how to collaborate, how to love and how to forgive.

When you were initiated, you should remember the last words of the Leading Knight in the oration of the Goddess of Charity:

“Charity is the greatest of all the virtues; and that it should ever rule us in our hearts and in our lives, leading us to speak no unkind word, to harbor no evil thought, to bear no malice, to support nowrong; but to nurture, love and protect; to condone, forgive and forget”.

I believe we are so blessed to be living where we do.  So far, we have had few infections and no deaths from the coronavirus.  We have been able to keep our clubhouse and golf  course open to afford fresh air and exercise, as well as socialization for our members.  Let us hope we can continue to maintain our good numbers through proper social distancing and good health practices.

Our facilities are not open to the public.  We are open to members and invited guests.  At this time, we are still allowing a maximum of four guests per member and those members must be with their guests.

Thank you to all our members that have supported this Lodge in these tough times.  We are doing OK—stay healthy, stay safe and be happy!

Wayne Krauss,
Secretary, PER

Notes from Corey

Top things to help the golf course.

  1.  Repair ball marks. Repairing ball marks is critical to having great greens. The greens are getting better and better so let’s treat them better and better.
  2.  Pick up broken tees. Throw them away or in the rough This keeps from them from dulling the blades of the tee mower and will give us a better cut longer.
  3. Fill and level divots. The dark sand pile is for divots. Please fill divots AND smooth them. This will help keep these hitting areas level.
  4.  Take the path less traveled. When you see an area that is getting beat down with carts then take another path. Help give the grass time to heal.
  5. Let the workers work. If possible please let the workers continue work if they are not in your way or if there is not a safety issue.
  6.  Bring out a friend and show them how great the golf course is doing. The more people we have golfing the better it is for the course.

Thank you,
Cory See, Course Superintendent
