Newsletter - Elk`s #469
Fellow members:
ctober is here bidding a fond
farewell to the Summer and a
“hello” to the Fall along with the
beginning of the 3rd Quarter of The
Elks’ Fraternal Year.
O
The Lodge’s September activities were a great start for
the Fall.
The pool league started play on Sunday Sept 11th at 1
P.M. along with a reception, courtesy of Vince Pullara,
with excellent food as usual. The re-felt of the pool table
looks and plays great. The Annual Golf Tournament held
on Mon. Sept, 12th, at Pine Ridge, was an outstanding
success with perfect weather. A great time was had by all
beginning with the lunch and ending with the dinner.
There were 29 foursomes, 107 Sponsors along with a very
successful 50/50 raffle and silent auction. The outing’s
success was a direct result of the leadership and guidance
of Bob Cwalina, PER Roger Delp, Jimmy Bullington for the
silent auction and The Elk Member Volunteers who
helped to make the tournament the great success it was.
All the event’s proceeds benefit the charity fund for
college scholarships, veterans and drug awareness. The
Annual Crab Feast was held on Sunday Sept 18th with 71
members and guests attending. It was a great day to
celebrate the last days of the Summer. Many thanks to
Leading Knight, Patrick Sullivan, PER Ray Der, PER Joe
Cox, PER Ron Blachowicz (The MCS for the corn on the
cob), PER Gerry Mastropieri, new member Jim Quigley
and Kim Walker. Great Job!

Saturday, October 8th. All volunteers to report to the
lodge at 9:30 A.M. Signup sheets to be placed around the

membership committee for new members will be held on the first Tuesday of

Latest News
A
t our September meeting once again we had a low
turnout but had several good discussions on the
agenda items and planned activities for the fall. Our
meeting was informative for all that attended. Here are
few things we talked about at the meeting. We finalized
our charities for the 2016/2017 season and I would like
for everyone to support these charities by attending our
upcoming activities listed below. We met with our ELK
Liaison and had a great conversation and clarification on
questions we presented to him. We also discussed our
plans for putting our new ideas into place as it relates to
the LOTE organization. Finally we discussed our “Paint
Night” and “Fall Raffle”. We are definitely moving in the
right direction, making things fun again and creating new
activities for the LOTE organization, so we hope you can
support us at these events.
