    What a festive holiday season we had for you atthe lodge. If you did not make it down for any of it, youmissed a lot. From the Ladies tree trimming party, to theirChristmas dinner, DDGER Greg Metzgus Homecoming,ER Christmas Party Chinese, with hot buttered rum bythe Blocks, Kampers Brunch, Christmas Basket set up &delivery, to Christmas itself, we had a lot of Holiday toCheer about.

    When we delivered the Christmas Baskets, we putsmiles on the childrens faces, which put smiles on themembers faces. When they came back to the Lodge,they put smiles on the other members faces! Its amouthful, but it is sooo o o worth it! So January wont beas exciting as December, but we still have lots of funcoming your way! Please check your calendar in yourcopy of the Antlers, or go online to our website(www.elks2477.com) to see the most updated version.Its an interactive calendar that will give you more detailto what is going on for a specific event.

    Last month, on Sunday, December 6, we had theElks Memorial service at our lodge. During that service, Igave a small speech about some of our absent memberswho helped shape the lodge into what it is today. I wasasked if we could post it to our website. So if you go tothe members section of our website, and then click on theblog, you will find it. I mention this for some of our newmembers, who might want to learn a little more aboutour fraternal side.

    Now speaking of memories from the past, we arehaving an Appreciation Dinner on Saturday, January 23for Dee Swanson, put on by Tom Ryder & the PERs withproceeds going to ENF! It will be a special night, withspecial guests, special surprises, (one surprise might bethat Dee will try to skip out of town, but I think we got

    that covered!). In the short year and a quarter that Iworked for, I mean as her boss, she did everything I toldher to do! Hehehe! So please come down for her Party!It will be a blast, and we can make some money forENF!

    Also, two reminders, first if you havent gottenyour tickets for the New Years Eve, I suggest you hurryup cause this is going to be the party that everyone isgoing to be talking about next year! Second, Saturday,January 9, 2010 at 9:30AM is the DD clinic in SantaBarbara. All members who even think they might beinterested in becoming an officer of this lodge, Iencourage you to attend. The info from these clinics isinvaluable to helping you understand what it takes to runa Lodge. Till next month, thank you for your support!

    HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
