President's Corner - October 2014

The Mid-Year Convention is just around the corner. Patty and I have been feverishly working to pro-vide you an opportunity for a fun filled but effective convention. Registration forms are available. Join with us in developing a stronger and lasting Order. Patty's theme for this convention is 'Support Our Military and Veterans'. She is soliciting needed items for Hospitalized and Homeless Vets so keep this in mind as you plan your attendance.

I hope you will all plan to attend the Membership Seminar that is scheduled at the mid-year. Bill Foucher and JeRay Bellon have spent a lot of time planning for the event.

Membership is and will remain the absolute top priority for each of us. The next time someone asks you 'what are Elks', you have the perfect lead in to pitch mem-bership. Curiosity about our order implies that they have somewhere been ex-posed to the Elks and this gives you the chance to enlighten them. In that same vein, remember your delinquent list and encourage your members to bring these back in to the fold.

As this calendar year comes to a close, we gear up for the holidays rapidly ap-proaching. The AEMP Annual Raffle is in need of your support. They need our fund raising efforts to continue the great works they accomplish.

Think back as a child how your 'Trick or Treat' evening was so much fun. In to-day's society, we have concerns about these events. Some Lodges plan a 'Trunk or Treat' in their parking lot where the members provide treats for the children from their cars, rather than the children going house to house. It's just a thought.

I am at your service, remember 'To serve, not to be served'!

God bless us one and all.

Jimmy S. Davis
President, AEA

Arizona Elks Major Projects (AEMP) - October Message

Gregg BoyceSeptember was a big month for events pertaining to AEMP. Let’s begin with the Arizona Elks Association State Golf Tournament. The proceeds from this statewide sporting event go to support the programs of the Arizona elks Major Projects. Show Low Elks Lodge was the host of this year’s event and the Golf Committee lead by Gregg Boyce pictured with Major Projects Board President Jerry Grimes and supported by Lodges members was a great success!

Over 100 Elks and guests from Arizona’s four corners took part in the two day Jimmy Davisevent. The Golf Courses were in excellent shape and the weather was flat out beautiful. A good time was enjoyed by all and a good sum of money was raised to support the programs of the Elks Major Projects. Tucson #385 sent a great group of golfers in support of the Major Project. AEA State President Jimmy Davis (pictured far right) thanked the Tucson Lodge Members for supporting the Golf Tournament and the work of the Arizona Elks Major Projects at the same time.

Tim WoodsOn Saturday evening September 13th 60 Arizona Elks attended the Arizona Diamondback baseball game verses the San Diego Padres. Phoenix Lodge #335 led the way by having 12 of their members and guests attend the Game. Major Projects Board President Jerry Grimes and Board Secretary Tim Woods (pictured) were introduced to all in attendance at the ballgame and the work of the Arizona Elks Major Projects was shared to all.

Pictures below are some of the ballgame attendees including DDGER South Jack Baillargeon and his Lady Gail, AEMP Executive Director Al Skorupski and his Lady Diane. All who attended the ballgame had a great time and the Diamondbacks won! A special thank you to the Arizona Elks Association State Photographer Robert Rapps, a Past Exalted Ruler from Phoenix Lodge #335.AEMP
