Hello everyone,
Summer is coming to a close and soon we will feel a chill in the air.

I hope more of our members take advantage of the new events we have going on down at the lodge. I am excited to see the “Family Fun Knight” event. This is a different event which incorporates, family, children, friends and will be a great afternoon of fun. There are a lot of components to this event to make it enjoyable for current members and the potential members we will have in a few years (about 10).

Halloween is around the corner and we are gearing up for another great evening. Be sure to get tickets for this event, you won’t want to miss it!

There are several changes in the pipeline for our lodge. We are still working out some of the details. We are exploring the different elements remaining for the bar renovation. We hope to have a resurfaced back parking lot soon and we have several other projects in the works.

ryan-odonnell-er-2014-2015For those of you that would like to volunteer to help with an event but don’t know who to contact, give the lodge a call 343-1431. They will put you in touch with someone. We can always use another set of hands . Our lodge wouldn’t be what it is today without our volunteers!!!

See you at the lodge

ryan-odonnell-er-2014-2015I had a really great time at Grand Lodge Convention. I learned a lot and enjoyed meeting others.

If you haven’t been down to the lodge lately you are missing some big and much needed changes. The offices have a new face! Both offices have had a fresh coat of paint and new carpet. What a difference! The  lounge has new barstools and we are still working on other upgrades. Come on down and see all the changes going on.

Keep your eyes open for the start of football next month. It’s always more fun to watch the game with friends and we have several televisions for your viewing pleasure.

There is now a monthly menu for TGIF so you will know ahead of time what is on the menu.

Mark your calendars for a busy September, we will have Investigation, Indoctrination and Initiation. As always we encourage our proposers to attend these meetings with their candidates. This makes the incoming members more comfortable and allows time for introductions. Be sure to call in your dinner reservations with the office.

ryan-odonnell-er-2014-2015Another productive month here at the Chico Elks Lodge. Some of the recent events that went very well were the Father’s Day brunch, which had great attendance and the flag day ceremony put on by Charlie Carroll and the officers of our lodge. Things do not appear to be slowing down for us here at the lodge as we enter July. One thing to note, at the Trustee meeting in June, the Trustee’s approved the funds (not to exceed $20,000) and land necessary for the construction of 2 (two) bocce ball courts that will run parallel to the back patio.

There are renditions of this construction posted throughout the lodge. As with any project that costs the lodge more than $5,000 it needs to be approved by the members on the floor of the lodge and we will be voting to approve the project at the first and only meeting in July on Wednesday July 9 th .

My opinion on this project: I believe this project will be a huge net benefit to the lodge, not only as a benefit to the members who will enjoy them personally but eventually I’d like to see the creation of an Elks Bocce League. This sport has seen a lot of popularity in recent years and our courts will no doubt draw tournaments to this area which will also benefit our lodge financially.

Another reminder, the months of July and August we only have one meeting each month. In July it will be the second Wednesday (July 9th) and in August it will be on the fourth Wednesday (August 27th).

See you at the lodge,
