As most of you know we had the misfortune of a fire on the
back porch of the golf course residence/superintendent’s house. The good news is damage is minimal and covered by
insurance. There was no damage to the residence itself other than smoke odor which we have been working on to get taken care of. This too shall pass.
I may have mentioned it before, but Grand Lodge is now taking care of member billing. The few that are in arrears of their dues are now receiving monthly billing statements. Please, if you are one of our past due members, we really need your membership renewal. The Elks is a tremendous organization and even though you may not be active, we still need you. I
mean, come on, $124.50 for a year’s dues — that’s only a little over $10 per month to support the greatest fraternal organization in the country!
By the time you receive this, unless you get it electronically, the election will be over and regardless of who wins remember, we are all still Americans in the greatest Country on Earth! We can only be that way if we all pull together, respect each other and take care of each other.
