To my Kinderhook Elk Family
It’s June! We have gotten to the point in this pandemic where can go maskless!!!! However, if you do not wish to, you can still wear one, it’s all about personal preference and what you’re comfortable with. We are hoping this will rev things up a bit at the Lodge.
Friday night meals are doing well but we are in need of crews and ideas for dinners. Sunday breakfast is underway and Larry is working on making sure we have members to work it. Please, if you are willing and able to help on a Sunday morning, let Larry or another member know, and we will let Larry know. If possible, we would like to get the steady crews back, each working one Sunday a month. Reach out to Larry or an officer and let them know you are willing to help and what Sunday works best for you.
The Car Show sign-up and the Fair sign-up sheets are on the bulletin board, next to the bartender’s schedule and the bathrooms. We need everyone to take a shift or two to fulfill the contract, and none of us want to sit and make endless phone calls begging for help.
There are 29 members who still haven't paid their dues for 2021-2022. Jerry is always updating the list so if you know someone on there, reach out with a friendly reminder. The list is posted, get this right next to the signup sheets on the bulletin board, next to the bartender's schedule and the bathrooms. Check it out.
We have a few activities coming up, The Special Needs Luau and Flag Day are on the top of the list. Tammy and Lee Ann are co-chairing the Luau and John Deane is in charge of Flag Day. Reach out to any of these people if you wish to get involved. Any and all help is greatly appreciated. A big meal for Friday the 16 of July is the BBQ, we need people, to prep, serve, make desserts, sell tickets, etc. Reach out to Rick Lacrosse at 518-929-0299 or Sandy Lacrosse at 518-610-2888.
The Elk is a work in progress, and if any of you remember the Lodge Crawl, I'd like to start working on setting another one up. This time however a few less Lodges for a longer visit at each one. Let me know if you’re interested. A grand time was had by all that attended the last one and if possible, I'm going to try for our same driver.
This is our Lodge and we have made over a million dollars’ worth of donations to the community since our inception. We need your help to keep moving forward. Please come to a meeting, help out at an event, or come up with an idea we can try. We all need to work together for the betterment of this Lodge and the community we serve.
Thank you for everything you do,
Anne Leiser, PER
