HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Our Lodge had a very successful New Years Eve party last Friday night. Big enthusiastic crowd — food was exceptional — and the music by “Alias” was great — champagne toast at midnight — welcomed in the New Year —2022!
Before we start on the events scheduled for this week — please check your schedule for Tuesday, January 11th.
Plan to eat at Chili’s. See the front page of your January Elkherd. On that date — January 11th — we will have a fundraiser — and all of us can participate — and contribute to our Elk charities at the same time. Take your friends (if any) — your neighbors — everyone is eligible to participate in this event. Simply tell your server that you wish to participate in the Elks fundraiser — or show them a copy of your January 2022 Elkherd. You can do this — eat at Chili’s and have fun at the same time — and help raise money for our Elk charities. (Bonus — when is the last time you suggested a Tuesday dinner night out for your significant other?)
Did I mention that you do NOT have to be an Elk member to participate — call your children — your Brother-in-law — they only have to go to their closest Chili’s restaurant
— and tell their server they wish to participate in the Elks fund raiser. (Easy peasy!!!) (Virtually all California & Hawaii Chili’s are participating.)
