Greetings Fellow Elk Members:
February was a quiet month but we left no rocks unturned. We had our annual Crab Feed that was a great success with a lot of Elk members that enjoyed socializing and eating an excellent meal. Everyone seemed to enjoy casino night as well. Our lodge meeting on February 6th we had the pleasure of having our State President, Dan Tackett, and Secretary Dave George join us. We had a very nice chicken fried steak dinner presented by Bobbi and then lodge. President Tackett presented us with a very nice cribbage board that his son made. It was a very nice gesture for our lodge.
I am sure all the golfers have been wondering about what have we done for a greenskeeper. Rest assured we have filled the position. Cory See from Kemmerer Wyoming will be our new greenskeeper starting April 1st. He brings with him his wife and five children. Please introduce yourself and welcome him to his new home.
I would like to thank everyone for your support this past year. We had our trials and errors but the year ended smoothly. It has been a pleasure to serve you as Exalted Ruler. I hope to continue serving the Elks Lodge and see more members involved with the lodge. We are a great organization that serves the communities needs with the youth and our veterans. I would like to thank the board and chair for all your support, and our secretary, Wayne Krauss for all his help when needed. I would like to give a special thanks to First Lady Lori Jaureguito for all of her support, understanding, and help volunteering at different functions. That being said, lets continue to grow and strive as Elk members.
Happy New Year,
Joel T. Jaurequito, D.C.
