Message from the Exalted Ruler

Greetings Fellow Elks Members:

Well June is upon us and May has passed but what a great month May was this year and late April.  The golf course is open and looks absolutely beautiful and our golf season wasnt delayed too much due to weather.  The bar is open for food and beverage so be sure to drop by and introduce yourself to Bobbi.  She has a history in the restaurant industry and I think she will be a great fit to our lodge.

This May we had a work day and painted the deck, fixed the gate by green number 4.  Thank you to Rick Sperry for organizing Work Day and the volunteers who showed up to work. It was a beautiful day and the Lodge looks very nice and clean.

State is this month and I will not be able to attend; However, Janey Wineinger, our Leading Knight will be attending and I will inform you of any new news that is happening with the Elks Lodge.  Nationals is in St. Louis at the end of June and I am looking forward to attending and increase my knowledge of Grand Lodge.

Again, I would like to invite all the members to come out for Lodge meeting, socialize, and give us input to improve our Lodge.  I would also like to thank all of our members who volunteer, Knights, and Board members for all of their work.  Without you, we would not exist.

Joel T. Jaureguito, D.C.
Exalted Ruler

From the Desk of the Secretary


When you look at the calendar for June, you will see there is a lot going on. Friday night steak dinners start on the 7th. The cost is 12.50 each and includes beef or salmon steak (you cook it on our BBQ’s) potatoes, salad and all the fixings. If you like, play a little golf and then enjoy social time and dinner. It starts at 5pm and we really would like to have your RSVP. You can call the office at 882-2577 in the morning or the Dining/Bar at 882-3015 in the afternoon.

ER Joel is sponsoring a fundraiser from 5-10 on the 7th for Sheldon Ackerman who is undergoing severe medical challenges and in need of financial help. Don’t miss out on the Father’s Day Tournament sponsored by the Nelson Family. All proceeds will go to the Special Olympics. It starts at 2pm and is nine holes and only costs $20 plus greens fees, so great way to spend Sunday afternoon!

The by-laws change which moves our Lodge meetings from 7:30 to 6:30 was voted on at the last meeting and Grand Lodge has approved that change. 

Sometime, hopefully this month, Rick Sperry will be heading up a work party to clean up cart storage sheds 2 and 3. All carts will be moved out, the floors pressured washed and parking lines and stall numbers repainted. This will be a big project that will need a dozen or so volunteers. I will send out an email when the date is finalized.

The remaining qualifying dates for the Sole Survivor and Senior Sole Survivor are: 6/2, 6/8, 6/15, and 6/22. 

Have a great month!

Wayne Krauss,
Secretary, PER

From the Lodge Esquire — A Lesson Worth Learning

One day, a villager took the local gossip to the Rabbi and said, “This man has spread false rumors about me and caused me many problems.”

The other quickly replied, “I must apologize for my gossiping. So, let me go on record as saying that I take back my words. Are you satisfied now?”

“Well,” the other man replied, “I appreciate the apology, but nevertheless, you can’t really take back words.”

“Nonsense!” the gossiper replied. “I’ve taken back my words, so the problem has been remedied. What else is there to this situation?”

After listening to the discussion, the Rabbi remarked to the gossiper, “Listen, if you want to truly remedy the harm you have caused, then come to the town square tomorrow with a feather pillow.”

The gossiper didn’t know what to make of this but agreed to comply. The next day, he came to the town square with the pillow and handed it to the Rabbi. The Rabbi then instructed him to tear open the pillow and swing the pillow around until all the feathers flew out.

The gossiper once again did not know what to make of this request but did as the Rabbi said.

The Rabbi then said, “OK now, bring back all of the feathers.”

“What!” the gossiper replied. “I surely cannot do that!”

“Well why not?” the Rabbi asked.

“Because,” the man explained, “the feathers have spread all over the place—some have gone in the bushes, and by now some have already flown many yards away. They’ve all scattered about. Even if I spent a month gathering them, there’d still be plenty that I wouldn’t get back.”

The Rabbi heard this and replied, “And just like it is impossible to recover those feathers, it is impossible to take back the words that you spread. In no time at all, they will spread to all sorts of corners far and wide and recovering them would be an insurmountable task.”

The man acknowledged that the Rabbi was right, and from that point on, he took more discretion in his words, and made sure that they did not slander others.

As you can see, the moral of the story is that you shouldn’t gossip about others because it can hurt someone, and you cannot take back words that have already been spoken.

So, this summer, when you gather with your friends & families, what words will you use?

Choose wisely!

THE FAULTS OF OUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS WE WRITE UPON THE SAND,
THEIR VIRTURES UPON THE TABLETS OF LOVE AND MEMORY.

Rick – Lodge Esquire

Bar & Dining

Hello from Bobbi

Hello! My name is Bobbi Ross and I have been hired as your new bar/dining manager.

I have met some of you already and want to say “Thank you” for such a warm welcome to your club. I very much look forward to meeting the rest of you!

As I am a little green (no pun intended!) in this new adventure, I welcome any suggestions or input you may have.

One of my goals is to have more members participate in the facility here. We have a nice menu available with the kitchen/dining area open Sunday-Saturday until 8pm and later on league nights.

I would also like to start a social hour with a Bunko night or really any activity (perhaps on a Monday evening?) Please phone me or better yet come to the club with any ideas.

I will close by saying thank you again for all your support and look “FORE”ward to this coming season and all it has to offer.

Bobbi, B/D Mgr.

Cart Shed Cleaning Project

Cart Shed Cleaning Project

Elks,

If you have been out to the lodge, you can see that we are making improvements inside and out! One of the projects we would like to get going is cleaning golf cart storage sheds #2 & #3. We would like to pressure wash the cement and re-paint the lines and stall numbers on the floor. In order to do this, all carts will have to be moved out of their respective shed on the workday. If you would like to help with this, let Wayne or I know. We are just planting a seed in your mind now, but we will be sending out dates within a month! Look for that in your email in box!

Remember, come out to the lodge and have a nice cold drink and some good food! Hope to see you there!
