President's Corner - September 2014

As I begin this article, I am mindful that the District Deputies have held their first clinics. I was privileged to attend two of the four. My apolo-gies to Don Polk and the North District and Jack Baillergeon of the South. I already had unshakable commitments to two other events and could not attend their clinics. Word has it, they conducted a fine clinic. Thank you Don and Jack.

Emphasis by the other two DDs stresses the dire necessity for all of us to take a meaningful look at our membership efforts. Bill Foucher con-stantly reminds us of the inevitability if we do not stem this annual de-cline we experience. As I have stated, the solution exists, it is our chal-lenge to find it. Recruiting in the Lounge is definitely not the answer. I met with the Membership Chair and the Public Relations Chair in an effort to establish a plan of action to be presented at the Mid-year Con-vention. If you want to be enlightened, come to the seminar that these two gentlemen have scheduled.

National Patriotism week is the week of September 7 thru September 13. We have the opportunity to show our patriotic side by remembering not only our military and veterans but our first responders who are gener-ally first on the scene in large scale disasters. Show your Elks Pride, it's important.

As the mid-year convention approaches, gear up for some excitement this year. Patriotism will flourish at the Ladies Luncheon. First Lady Patty and her bevy of cohorts have planned a super afternoon for you.

Our beloved State Sponsor PGER Ken Moore has retired. We will miss him terribly. In its infinite wisdom, Grand Lodge has appointed one o the most eloquent and entertaining Past Grands as our new State Sponsor. Come to the convention and visit with the Honorable PGER Louis J. 'Jim' Grillo and his gracious Lady Lucia. Jim will bring a lot to the con-vention but I warn you, he is 100% Elk. I also took the liberty of inviting Hugh Scanlon, member Grand Lodge Board of Trustees, Area 7. He too is all Elk. The President of the California Hawaii Elks Association, Floyd 'Skip' Henke and his wife Karen will light up our convention. And don't forget our own Don Waggoner, Grand Esteemed Leading Knight and Manny Rodriguez on the Grand Lodge Activities Commit-tee. This is going to be a fantastic convention.
The Arizona Elks Major Projects have their annual raffle for a new Jeep. Get your tickets early and of-ten. Support for this great organization provides assistance to Arizona youth at the Children's Research Center and the Jack Warter Youth Camp near Globe.

On a final note, I cannot close without a commentary on our Ritual. Where would we be without it. I am convinced that the ritual, 'the soul of Elkdom' is and should be protected as an endangered species. If you haven't competed, you don't really know the true experience of a finely crafted and smoothly operating team. You form bonds that will never die.

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

God bless us one and all.

Jimmy S. Davis
President, AEA

Outstanding Teen Practice Immunization Award

Arizona Elks Pediatric Clinic Receives ‘Daniel T. Cloud Outstanding Teen Practice Immunization Award’

TUCSON, Ariz. – The Arizona Elks Pediatric Clinic at the University of Arizona Medical Center won the “Daniel T. Cloud Outstanding Teen Practice Immunization Award.”

The award was presented at the 18th Annual “Big Shots for Arizona Awards Ceremony,” by The Arizona Partnership for Immunization in Phoenix.

This award is given for reaching 90 percent immunization coverage levels by age 15. The vaccines assessed included one Tdap (protects against diphtheria, tetanus and whooping cough), one MCV (protects against meningitis) and one HPV (protects against cervical cancer) vaccine.

“I want to thank my staff and faculty for taking every opportunity to be sure our patients receive appropriate vaccinations,” said Kimberly Gerhart, MD, medical director of the clinic, assistant professor and division chief of General Pediatrics, UA Department of Pediatrics. “I especially thank Bridgette Favors, LPN, for helping us keep the clinic compliant with CDC/state guidelines, including vaccination schedules, vaccine administration and the handling and storage of vaccines.”

This is the second recognition the Arizona Elks Pediatric Clinic has received in the last 12 months for their excellent immunization rates.
