Elk of the Year for 2014-2015
The Elk of the Year award was presented to Tom Day. Tom has been a very active member of the Lodge for a number of years. He offers sound advice and opinions when asked, but is quick to remind you that their own opinion may not be the best one. Tom can always be counted on to provide assistance when maintenance is required both inside and outside the building. He volunteers talents for many youth and adult events alike and continues to volunteer for one of the most stressful positions year after year. He is a Past Exhalted Ruler, perennial Pool Committee Chairperson, provider of audio-visual needs and DJ extraordinaire. Thank you Tom for all you do to help make the High Point Elks successful and congratulations on being the Elk of the Year.

February’s Elk of the Month is Stewart McGlaughlin. Stewart is a Lodge Trustee, a member of the Pool Committee, the House Committee, editor and publisher of the monthly newsletter, and editor and publisher of everything relating to social media (Facebook, Twitter, and email blast). I’ve probably missed a couple of other items he helps out with, but you get the picture, he’s a very active Elk and we are lucky to have someone willing to share so many talents. Most recently he has developed and hosted the Name That Tune Game. This was an experiment that turned out remarkably well. We have enjoyed high participation and a lot of fun at these events. Stewart’s help and enthusiasm is invaluable to our Lodge. I hope you’ll let him know how much we appreciate his efforts the next time you see him at the Lodge.

Chicago, IL – Local Elks Lodges throughout the United States and in Guam, Puerto Rico and the Panama Canal will be celebrating 147 years of community service on January 16, 2015.

Last year alone, the Elks donated approximately $320 million in cash, gifts and time to make our communities better places to live. The Elks are one of the premier patriotic and charitable organizations in the United States of America.

The Elks vow “So long as there are Veterans, the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks will never forget them.” Elk volunteers visit thousands of hospitalized Veterans each year in support of both active military forces and retired Veterans. Elks furnish food, comfort care items, therapeutic items and gifts; provide recreational activities at bases and hospitals; and, stand ready to fulfill any need when called upon. Last year alone, the value of Elks’ contributions to our nation’s heroes provided more than $33.4 million to more than 300 Veterans Administration medical centers, clinics, and state care facilities, as well as to the homeless Veterans.

Annually, the Elks award college scholarships across the nation totaling more than $4 million.

The Elks Community Investment Program awards more than $8 million towards enriching our communities.

There are nearly 2,000 Elks Lodges across the country with a total membership exceeding 800,000. Elks’ members must be American citizens who are at least 21 years of age and must believe in God.

December’s Elk of the Month is Scott Webster. Scott is a long time member of the lodge. He has served as Exalted Ruler twice and currently serves as the President of the High Point Lodge Board of Directors. Just as importantly he cooks a mean steak. For several years in a row Scott has volunteered his time to stand out in the cold and cook everyone’s meal the night of the member’s Christmas party, while everyone else is warm inside enjoying themselves. This year was no exception. The next time you see Scott, please thank him for his service to our Lodge.
