The Veterans Stand Down that was scheduled to be held in Escondido beginning April 15th has been re-scheduled for September — and they have moved the site to Vista.

Welcome to April and to a New Lodge Year

Greetings:

Welcome to April. The first day of April is the start of our new Lodge year and — Dues are Due!

If you have not yet paid your dues for our new fiscal year ending March 31, 2022 — please contact the Lodge office as soon as possible. Do you remember that a portion of your dues go to pay your District dues and a portion goes to pay your National dues? Your Lodge is required to pay your District and National within the next few days, whether we have received your dues payment or not. 

Also, please be aware that a portion of our Lodge’s property tax bill is payable within the next few days. We urge you to remit your dues asap to help keep YOUR Lodge solvent!

Thanks to all those loyal Escondido Elk members who have already sent in their dues for next year. Many of you have also added “extras” to your payments that went to some of your favorite Elk charities and/or favorite activities. We appreciate you more than we can express. 

This is also Easter Week and the activities at our Lodge have slowed down a bit. We will be serving our Friday Night Dinner at the Lodge this Friday, April 2nd. Our menu features either baked or grilled tuna along with a veggie, salad and a dessert. Our chefs are Tim & Linda Lyons. Our Friday night dinner price is still only $12 per. (Where else can you treat your “significant other” to a great meal at that price — which also includes tax & tip?)

Our bar opens at around 5:00pm on Fridays and our dinner will be served from 5:30pm until 7:00pm.

Our bar opens at 10:30am on Saturdays and hamburgers are served from 11:00am until1:00pm.

Although we are serving inside these days — face masks are still required upon entry into our Lodge and social distancing is observed. 

Looking forward to seeing you at YOUR Lodge!

Harrison Beal,
Webmaster &
Treasurer

PS. Happy Easter!!



Our Schedule for the Weekend —- And Our April 2021 Elkherd

The menu for our dinner tonight — a/k/a “Friday Night Dinner at The Lodge” — features pulled pork — and also “Grandma Bennetts’ beans”, veggies and a dessert —
all for $12. There will also be a birthday cake as we help celebrate Eva’s birthday. Bar opens around 4:30 and dinner is served from 5:30pm until 7:00pm. Dianne Allen —our incoming ER —will be our chef. 

Hamburgers as usual Saturday morning (March 27th) — bar open at 10:30am and burgers served from 11:00am until 1:00pm.

Face masks are require upon entry into our Lodge — and social distancing is observed.

We have another gala evening planned for tomorrow night. Our Lodge is awarding twenty-six (26) scholarship awards of $300 each to certain seniors from local high schools. 

Those students and their parents have been invited to attend the dinner tomorrow night as our honored guests  

All Elks are also invited — and encouraged — to attend the dinner. The menu for Saturday night features spaghetti, veggie, salad and a dessert. 
Our chef for the evening is Bob Whittaker.

On Saturday our bar will open at  5:00pm — and dinner will be served at 6:00pm. Business casual dress code is requested.  The cost is $15 per person. 

One of the reasons we decided to award these 26 scholarships — from our Ford fund — to local high school students was to also help promote our Elks Lodge among the community. We request that as many of our members as possible also attend the event to help meet and greet our guests. Please call the Elks office for reservations.

Thank you!
