House Committee Meetings:
1st Monday of the month at
9:30 a.m.
Fall is upon us and winter is coming. A lot of our members become snowbirds and
leave for the winter.
November is a busy month. We have the Veterans Parade on Nov 8th. Staging is at
City Hall at 9:30 am; parade starts at 10:30 am. All veterans and families are invited
to attend. For those who can't walk the 1.2 miles, there are 2 CAR CLUBS: Lake
Ozark Corvets and Lake Ozark Car Club. Veterans are invited to ride in these cars in
the parade. All Elk veterans come on out and be in the parade. Have your families
line the parade route. Flags will be provided to wave. Food will be provided in the
Lodge after the parade. Let’s have a good showing to honor those who serve our
country.
The parking lot should be repaired by now.
If family won't be here for Thanksgiving, come to the Lodge for dinner. The Lodge
will provide the turkey. Bring your favorite dish.
The Lodge has had a great year. We received an A1 review by the Grand Lodge
District Deputy.
It is time to think about who will lead the Lodge next year. We need new people
with new ideas. Consider running for office and continue the good work of the Elks.
During the winter months, the Lodge will continue to have shuffleboard, washers,
cornhole and bar trivia. For a good time, participate in these activities.
Prime rib dinners continue to be a great success. Thanks to Sandy and the crew. It
is a lot work. They deserve a hand.

A big thank-you to Jim & Joan Bex, Jerry &
Sharon Spurgeon, Warren & Dee Gardner, Bill
& Carol Perkins, Sue Doornbosch, Sharon
Cass, fireman Daniel Zumwalt, and the Osage
Beach Fire Department, for helping me with
Fire Safety Day. The children received a
fire hat, stickers, pamphlets, lunch, and
watched a video. Daniel answered their
questions and let them try on his fire hat
and jacket. A good time was had by all.
This event was made possible with money
from the Promise Grant.
