The Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks



Exalted Ruler - Linda Murphy

My pool sadly is closed and fall is in the air, but I am still not ready for all the pumpkin ?avored everything that will soon be ?ooding the markets.
We as a lodge we are growing stronger in membership communication that has actively re-charged the lodge with new ideas and people willing to help out with our causes and with our building maintenance. Our Drug Awareness program is taking off swiftly, reaching out to our community with information to help in dealing with the current drug abuse issues today.
I want to thank everyone who came out to help feed the kids at Camp Moore, the kids and counselors had a blast and their smiles were contagious. 'Our band' showed up and entertained everyone. This is what being a Volunteer Organization is all about. It warms my heart to say we are "Flemington #1928 Strong"
When you enter the lodge, take a look at all the history and awards on the walls that built the foundation of our beloved lodge. This hard work and commitment made our history. Be proud and honor those members that made this happen and let us continue this greatness with pride. Alone we can do so little but together we can do much. Where there is teamwork and collaboration, wonderful things can be achieved. I see this vision coming through as more of you have been coming around to lend a hand, offer

an idea, share some time. This is strengthening our core and brightening our future as a lodge. We have many events on the calendar and if you feel you can help in any way give me a call. We can always use and extra set of hands to help cook, wash a dish or two and cleaning up after. We always have a good time, sharing fellowship and accomplishing things to bene?t the lodge, our committees and our charities,
Please keep in your thoughts and prayers the victims of all the natural disasters happening around us. The wild?res, hurricanes and ?oods have impacted many people displacing them from their homes. The devastation is leaving behind in its path feeling of fear and desperation. We as Elks can come together to help those affected. On a national level, the Elks has a Disaster Relief program in place already donating $25,000 to help the victims. If you would like to donate to this cause you can via the Elks.Org webpage.
I leave you now with a crossword question: What is a nine letter word meaning help without pay? (answer in next edition)
