There are many events coming up soon at YOUR Escondido Elks Lodge. Pay attention — you might miss something!
There will be an important Lodge meeting tonight starting at 7:00pm. There will be light snacks available starting at about 6:00pm.
Thursday night — September 9th — Game Night! The social quarters will be open at 4:00pm and light snacks will be available.
Friday Night — September 10th — We will have several honored guests at our Friday Night dinner from the Veterans Administration Hospital.
As you know — or should know—one of the charities that our Escondido Elks Lodge supports is for the veterans at the VA Hospital in La Jolla.
We are presenting the VA with a gift of $4,000 — representatives from the VA will be on hand to accept the gift and to give a short presentation
explaining how the VA plans to use our gift. (Plan to attend — you might even learn something!)
Our menu Friday night is lasagna with a salad and a dessert — and our chef will be Tim Lyons. We will be serving from 5:30pm until 7:00pm.
The VA presentation will be around 6:30pm.
Saturday morning — September 11th — our Lodge will be rocking and rolling! We now have “Cars & Burgers” on the second Saturdays of each month.
Expect that our parking lot will be full of vintage autos — and expect a lot of folks having a great time!
We will be serving burgers, as usual, from 11:00am until 1:00pm.
Saturday night — September 11th — we will be having a Country Western Dance. Music will be finished by “The Barbed Wire”.
There will be dance lessons starting at 6:30pm and open dancing from 7:30 until 10:00pm. Admission is $12 — except that Elks are admitted for $10.
Sunday Morning — September 12th — Our Lodge is having a breakfast fundraiser for our Elks National Foundation Fund.
(Fund raisers like this breakfast are one of the ways we raise funds to support — among other things — patients at the VA Hospital!)
We will be serving from 8:30am until 11:00am.
Ours is a very active Lodge — thanks to all of you who actively support the many activities of our Lodge!
Coming Events: Please plan to attend — and make your reservations now — for our “Murder Mystery Theater” dinner on Saturday night September 18th.
