The purpose of this association is to increase the popularity of our common interests, riding and enjoying our membership in the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks. By adding the chapter of Saint George Elks Riders #1743 to Saint George Lodge #1743, we hope to add many new members to both our lodge and association. We want to have fun when we are together, whether it be riding or working side by side with others on projects that will benefit many different charities. By developing relationships and friendships, the association will become even stronger.
We would like to try to further promote the interest of our association and our members, not only to fellow Elks, but the community as well. We will strive to make a difference.
We strive to become a successful association. its success is generated by the hard work and time donated by our members towards a worthy cause. We would like to become recognized on a local, state, and possibly national levels as a successful association of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks.
Elks Riders # 1743—Kickstands up July 2023
Happy 4th of July!!!!! Yes, it is July already. I want to wish you and your families a safe and happy holiday. It's going to start getting very hot so be careful out there. We will be looking at doing evening rides at our meeting on the 16th. Do not forget that June 16th is Father’s Day; our meeting will be immediately following our Lodge Father’s Day event being held in the pavilion that morning.
We have been invited to be part of the Veterans Day parade in Mesquite, NV. We will be discussing that at our meeting. Also for the women in our group, t-shirts are available for you to order. Please contact Susan
Shurtliff for details.
I am very interested in getting us out more for rides. I have been approached by the President of Boulder City for combined group rides, which is something we can discuss. I do want input from all as too where you would like to ride.
We also have been asked to help support an initiative developed by the Lodge Americanism Committee to purchase American Flags and Military Flags. Details will be discussed at our meeting. I look forward to seeing you all there.
