ENF UPDATE - December 2018
Hi All. Holy Cow, where did 2018 go? I haven’t even put Easter decorations away yet and its Christmas time already.
We have had a very good ENF year thanks to our generous and loyal Elk Lodge members. Here are some stats for you: asof the latest Elks National Foundation report, our Lodge is at $9.561 per capita with $10,221 donated with another $3,000 on its way to Chicago WhooHoo! Sad to say, Provo Lodge is ahead of us with $10,930 per capita. Hopefully the $3000 will kick us ahead of them. That 1st place plaque would look really good in our Lodge!
To date we have been approved for $8,000 in grants from ENF with another grant still in the works. As far as our Hawaiian Fund Raiser figures go: we cleared right at $3,652 with the Purple Pigs being $1,200 of it. Amazing amount of change turned in. It is so neat the way members adopted them, filled them, and then returned them. A huge thanks to Linda VanHoek for herding those fat little purple porkers around.
Finally, I wish you a blessed and happy holiday season. Please know that your donations have helped to make a happier Christmas for many others.
