The April Elk of the Month is Tom Adams. Tom does a tremendous amount of work behind the scenes of which a lot of members may not be aware. April is generally a slow month for us due to a lot of different competing events. This is especially true during furniture market. On the weekend of the furniture market, Tom organized an impromptu dinner in the lounge, which brought in a good amount of members on a weekend that is normally not well attended. If you see Tom at the Lodge, please give him a pat on the back and thank him for everything that he does.

This month we have 2 Elks to be recognized. In February, Robert Daniels and Doc Gower donated their time and skills to replace all of the lighting cans in the dining area on the 1st floor. The replacement also required that new ceiling tiles be cut to fit for each fixture. The repairs will enhance our ability to rent the facility going forward. When you see Robert and Doc, please reach out and thank them for their time and service.

The September Elk of the Month is Scott Brendle. Knowing that parking is an issue at our swim meets and other Lodge events, Scott tirelessly donated his time and body to falling saplings, weeds, and overgrowth around the tree line to increase the grass parking area. I know we all appreciate his efforts to increase parking on Lodge grounds and not on the street! Please join me in congratulating Scott on Elk of the Month!
