President's Corner - August 2014

What a blast to be in the jazz capitol, New Orleans, Louisi-ana. I remember fondly our visit there when Dick Hatcliff was State President. This year, it was my turn to bear the Arizona Flag at the opening ceremony of the Grand Lodge Convention. This event really gets your heart pumping and sets the stage for all the convention activities. I guess I'm guilty of one of the seven deadly sins, PRIDE in carrying our flag. I'll say an extra Hail Mary.

Thank you Jerry and Linda for providing a hospitality room that is reflective of the pride we share as Arizona Elks. I thank you for the special touch you provided with the Garfield display.

I had hoped to promote the bell ringing in all the Lodges on the 4th of July in my 'Let Freedom Ring' message but I was too late in getting the word out. Next year I will en-courage Jack Lawrence to promote this idea much earlier.

The Vice Presidents and District Deputies are busy with their visitation schedules. Some visits have already been completed. My main message this year is an attempt to renew our belief in the sanctity of the Ritual. Each day it becomes more and more evident that the ritual is our most effective tool in developing and maintaining quality members. The effectiveness of a sound Ritual of Initiation cannot be over emphasized.

We all need to take a serious look at our delinquencies. We should not be hounding mem-bers to pay their dues. We should be making efforts to discover why they are delinquent and take appropriate measures to bring them back into the fold. Personal contact is much
more appealing than a letter informing them that they are in arrears of their dues. I'll bet they already know that. We need to lend a sympathetic ear to their plight and discover why they are delinquent and what we can do to help.

Promoting the Order of Elks is the only way we can insure the survival of this great frater-nity. We do this by our benevolent works and more importantly in leading by exam-ple. As I close this message, I ask each of you to remember the obligation you swore be-fore the antlers. We are the greatest fraternity and our brotherhood will continue so long as we adhere to our oath.

The Mid-year Convention is rapidly approaching. If you have requests or ideas for a seminar, you need to contact me and/or Ed Leuer.

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.
