President's Corner - April 2014

I extend my congratulations to all of the newly installed and appointed officers for the 2014-2015 lodge year. Thank you for stepping up to lead your lodge forward to another success-ful year.

As you start your year remember your Past Exalted Rulers can be a source of information to assist you. Also the State Asso-ciation Officers and chairmen are there to assist with your programs. Ask them anytime.

Last month Janet and I had the opportunity to attend the Utah State Association spring Convention in St. George. We had the opportunity to visit with our Grand Exalted Ruler Millard Pickering and his wife Susanne. They will be at our May Convention. Take the time to visit with them, they are great folks.

The District Deputies will be having their District Deputy Clinics this month. It is required that the appropriate officers and chairman attend these clinics are important as new offices. To learn and get the information back to your lodges to help get your year and committees up and running.

I hope that everyone will attend the AEA Annual Convention in Tempe on May 7th – 10th. The Business sessions are important to help your lodge have a successful year. There will be several important breakout sessions that will give a great deal of information that your Lodge needs. The Convention is a time to learn and share ideas with Elk members from all of the other lodges. Maybe we can get a great idea from someone to help us do better in our own lodges.

Janet has planned a great Ladies Lunch. So please attend. Also bring your books to the convention for the Steel Research Center. The theme for the Ladies luncheon is Red, White, and Blue West-ern. Please come and enjoy the entertainment at the Ladies Luncheon.

April 1st, anyone who has not paid their dues is delinquent. Now is the time to contact them to see if they need assistants or find what we need to do to get our Elks to pay and participate. Member-ship is the life blood of our lodges and the Elks.

The AEMP annual raffle is under way, so get your tickets for the red Jeep . Tickets are on sale now. We are having an Elks afternoon at the Diamond-Backs on Saturday, May 17th. Contact the AEMP office for your tickets.

My year as your State President will soon come to a close and a new year is starting for the State Association, we are here to assist you in your lodge. Call myself or the hard working State Com-mittee Chairman to help. This is what we are here for. Working together we can accomplish great things.

God Bless American and God Bless our Troops. God Bless Everyone.

Fraternally, Ed Leuer, President
Arizona Elks Association / 2013-2014

A Legacy of Giving

Arizona Elks Major Projects Donates $125,000 to the UA Steele Children’s Research Center

TUCSON, Ariz. – The University of Arizona Steele Children’s Research Center has received $125,000 from the Arizona Elks Major Projects.

Al Skorupski, executive director of the Arizona Elks Major Projects, presented the check to Fayez K. Ghishan, MD, director of the UA Steele Center, at the December advisory board meeting.

This donation is part of the Elks’ commitment to raise $2.5 million for the UA Steele Center over the next 10 years.

Since 1991, the Elks have raised more than $5 million for the UA Steele Center. They have supported basic science research, education and clinical programs.

“We are so grateful for the Elks’ continued support,” said Dr. Ghishan. “They are truly our partners in improving children’s health, and we could not move forward without them.”

The Elks have committed to support the following UA Steele Center research areas and programs:
  • Basic science research in autoimmune diseases such as type 1 diabetes, multiple sclerosis, inflammatory bowel disease and celiac disease.
  • Establishing the UA Steele Children’s Translational Research Center in Phoenix.
  • Establishing the Arizona Elks Endowed Chair in Statewide Pediatric Research.

“The 30,000 individuals who are members of the Arizona Elks Association are proud to support the UA Steele Center’s efforts to improve children's health,” said Al Skorupski, executive director of the Arizona Elks Major Projects. “Establishing the UA Steele Children’s Translational Research Center in Phoenix, supporting research and creating a new endowed chair are important steps to help children in Arizona who are struggling with illness and disease.”
