President's Corner - March 2014
Welcome to March, the final month of the Lodge year. I hope each of your lodges had a great year. With the elections over the planning begins to set goals and program for the 2014-2015 year. I know you will have many new 1st time offices, please take the time to explain what their duties are so your lodge will have another successful year.
Your lodge should have or is going to submit bro-chures for state judging to let us all know what you have accomplished.
Janet and I rode the “Junk Food Express” to Las Vegas, Nevada to watch our kids shoot in the Area 7 Regional Hoopshoot. It was great to watch then shoot and be part of presenting their awards. Larry Torres Area 7 Regional Director ran a very fine program. Our State Hoopshoot Chairman Gregg Boyce and his wife Jeanne did an outstanding job taking care of the kids and seeing that we were where we needed to be. Thank You. Our 12-13 year old boy from Pinal Mountain won shooting 25 for 25. Now we get to go to Springfield Massachusetts to watch the National Finals. This will be great. We will be there to root him on representing Arizona.
Please be sure to get your AEMP and ENF money sent in for 2013-2014 and up-date your charity book.
Once again thank you to the officers of the 2013-2014 lodge year and I hope you will stay in involved to help your lodge do great things in the coming year..
God Bless our Troops, and God Bless America
Ed Leuer, President
Arizona Elks Association / 2013-2014
