ER Letter for August 2010

Our Lodge was as busy as ever in the month of July.  Our annual 4th of July pool party was once again a fun event for children and adults of all ages.  Volleyball teams are more competitive than ever, “Corn hole” tournaments are a weekly event, and you can occasionally enjoy some live acoustic guitar music on the deck.  This is what summer is all about at the Elks Lodge.

Monica and I represented the High Point Elks Lodge #1155, at the Elks National Convention in Orlando this year, We had the opportunity to meet many Elks from around the country.  The Convention was both entertaining as well as educational, This is definitely a must do event for any Elk. One of the highlights of the convention was when all of the ER’s from the states of, New Mexico, Illinois, North Carolina, South Carolina, New York , Wisconsin, Texas, Arkansas, Tennessee, and Louisiana, met poolside on the final night of the convention and recited the 11 O’clock toast as a group to the State Association Presidents.

I would like to Congratulate our Elk’s Swim team for their GREAT 3rd place finish in the 2010 Championship Meet.  My Thanks go out to Laura and her coaching staff, and to all the parent volunteers for their help and support throughout the season.

As we head into August please remember to come to the Lodge on Aug. 7th for our Camp Carefree Fundraising Event we will be a host stop off for the Camp Carefree Motorcycle Run this year, this will be a family event, and we really need to show our support.

Thank You,
