The Ladies of the Elks completed a planning meetings in December and prepared for the Kids Christmas party. The ladies group decided for 2019 we will alternate the leader/coordinator position for our group on a quarterly basis. This will give everyone a chance to help and the opportunity to get to know others in the lodge in a different capacity. We will also alternate the coordinator for kids parties so that everyone has the opportunity to lead as well as help. Carol Rysavy was elected to do the treasury duties for the coming year. She and Carol Moody will make the name changes on the account.
The first meeting in January, January 3rd, was elections for the first quarter coordinator and for the Kids Easter party coordinator. Our group also decided what charities we will be donating to this year and are making arrangements to get that money dispersed. Remember the ladies meetings are the first Thursday of each month and the Thursday night of the month when initiation is held – check the Elklet calendar for that each month. Please plan to join us for a great start for the coming year!
The ladies voted to purchase vinyl food carts for the lodge. Carol Rysavy ordered them and they have been received and put together thanks to Bob Moody! They were very handy during the food basket preparation. We hauled a lot of food on them! Great job ladies!
All the children and adults had a great time at the Children’s Christmas party! We had a low turn-out but they made up for it in fun! Howard had them all up on stage participating in magic tricks and even brought Santa out of the hat!! Every child took many goodies home with them along with a picture of them with Santa thanks to Dan and Linda Loop coordinating that for the Ladies of the Elks! Santa Duane and his elves Tim and Darrell were newbie’s at these duties but said they had a ball! Thanks to Howard, Duane, Tim, Dan, Linda and all the ladies who volunteered to make this a successful day! You all made part of these children’s happy holiday!
Happy New Year to all from the Ladies of the Elks!
