The bar tips gave the veterans over $100. New Years was great. A lot of good food. Music brought out a lot of dancers. The bar did over $1,300. Linda and Perry did a good job. Winter is here, the snow birds are gone. The Lodge has many activities to keep you entertained on cold days. Show me the money, shuffle board, trivia, washers, corn hole, bar poker, ping pong, queen of hearts, chili, soup, wings and appetizer cook offs. The super bowl party is always a good time. Nominations of officers for next year is Tuesday, Feb 3rd. The election will be Tuesday Feb 15th. We host the hospitality room at the March State Convention. Ron and Glenda Birdsong will be in charge of the food. Give them a hand. See you at the super bowl party. Jerry Spurgeon Exalted Ruler On December 6 we had a fantastic auction that raised approximately $6,700 that we then turned around and spent about $6,300 on gift cards and presents for families in the Lake area. We were able to provide Wal-Mart gift cards to 65 families and also bought presents for 150 children. You should be proud that we were able to provide some Christmas for families that are probably not as fortunate as most of us. Of course we can not accomplish this without the Elks coming forward to help with acquiring the auction items, putting the auction together, shopping for the presents, wrapping the presents and delivering/handing out the gift cards and presents. I can't put everyone's name here that volunteered because there were over 25 people assisting, but I do want to single out Ron and Ruth Ann Yarbrough who by themselves were responsible for probably 2/3 of the auction items. So, thanks to all for your help and especially Ron and Ruth Ann. We were able to make a small difference in our community, and for that we should be proud Elks. Jerry Fox Leading Knight God Bless & Protect our Service Men & Women wherever they Serve our Country around the World. We appreciate their Sacrifice & Service to America. Elks Lodge 2517 Lounge Courtesies Several items we would like to bring out: 1. This is an Elks Lodge where we should be respectful to others. No Bad Language. When it can be heard at the next table, it’s too loud. 2. If you move tables, please put them back where they were. This helps keep our club neat and tidy. 3. When you get ready to leave, please clean your table and return your drink glasses to the bar. As you know, we have no waitresses. You use the table, please clean it! 4. We have found the service to be very good and our help deserves a tip. A tip is very important to our hardworking Bartenders. 5. Don’t forget to sign up for the daily and weekly drawings, they are only $.50 and a $1 and could return a lot more to you. 6. Should you ever have a new idea or complaint about the Lounge and Bar, please see one of the House Committee members. Thank you, Your House Committee Hi All, Good day from the Lodge. What a great day in Paradise. If you close your eyes and take a breath deeply through your nose you can almost smell Spring…… What a great winter we have had with loads of activities, great food and well poured drinks. Well get ready, because it’s going to get even better. Let’s show those Snow Birds that they may have a little warm weather but we have the most fun. Rusty and crew have some delightful drinks sure to warm you up and Sandy has some delicious menu items for you to experience. In addition, there are a lot of novel activities planned to keep you entertained this month. Make sure you check the calendar and get your buns to the Lodge so you can join in on the fun. Once again we want to thank all of the volunteers that make our Lodge so great. Take care and we hope to see you at the Lodge.
