Congratulations to our Lodge for making the NCSEA Summer Newsletter!

The North Carolina Association of Resource Officers, an Association of law enforcement officers assigned to schools across North Carolina, meets yearly for a conference for members to get re-certified. This year, the week long conference was held at the Sea Trail resort in Sunset Beach with approximately 450 officers attending. . During their annual conference the Elks of the High Point Lodge host a BBQ dinner for these officers and their families to thank them for their dedication and service. Working with the Calabash Elks Lodge, who donated the use of their facility, the High Point Elks prepared and served some 350 dinners on the evening of Wednesday July 13th. According to Ed Roberson, a Past State President of the North Carolina State Elks Association and member of the High Point Lodge, they have been hosting this dinner for the past 22 years. The High Point Elks trailer-ed their cooker down from High Point and starting at 6 am cooked 200 lbs. of Boston butts in the parking lot of the Calabash Elks Lodge. The meal of BBQ, beans, slaw, and chips was enjoyed by all.

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

If you haven’t already, please come by and see our newly resurfaced pool. We should all be very proud of our Lodge and the Pool Committee for the hard work that made this happen.

We all know the lifeblood of our organization is membership. I hope you will invite a prospective member to show off our pool and Lodge facilities. There are plenty of activities going on including Family Burger Nights, NFL playoffs and many more.

Many thanks to all our committee members for their service to our Lodge, our Veterans and the community. A special thank you goes out to our Ladies Auxiliary for decorating (and un-decorating) our Lodge for the holidays.

I wish each of you a happy and prosperous 2016 and look forward to seeing you at the Lodge.

Fraternally yours,
Gary Hutchins, Exalted Ruler

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 Exalted 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.
