Message from the Exalted Ruler
Hi Brothers and Sisters;
The cool crisp air is here!
We are starting to see the
nights get longer and the days
get colder, so bundle up everyone.
November, just like any other
month, is going to be a busy month at the
Lodge. We are diligently working with
Columbus Elementary and the International
Teacher-Parent Club to feed the
hungry. This joint effort will provide border
area students meals for Thanksgiving.
The vision of the project is to distribute
a complete meal for Thanksgiving to
students that are in need. I am excited to
launch this project as an international
engagement to help others in need. The
project “International Food Share Project”
will feed those whom otherwise may not
eat traditional meals for Thanksgiving or
may not eat at all during the school
break. Please help us in this mission by
bringing non-perishable items to the
Lodge or by donating a turkey.
The Rib Cook off is planned and set for
November 7th. So far we have five or so
teams ready to complete. We are hoping
to get some last minute teams join. The
new twist to the cook off is that ribs must
be smoked and cannot be vapored,
boiled or steamed. The entry fee for a five person team is $50. The rules sheet
and entry forms are at the Lodge. Come
on down and join the fun. We will also
have ATM-Sam Rodriguez spinning the
tunes for us during the competition. All
proceeds of the cook off have been
tabbed for our annual kid’s bingo. Come
help support the cause.
Also, during the day of the rib cook off
we will have our DD Visit. Our DD Greg
Bose will meet with officers and the
Board of Directors at 3 pm for a Lodge
meeting, and again at 5:30 pm.
We are already planning for next month
and have our kids bingo scheduled for
December 13th and our New Year’s Eve
Party is in the works. More information
to come in the next newsletter, stay
Yours in Elkdom,
George Torres PER
