Lodge 572 Gives Annual Awards

During the annual volunteer appreciation dinner, the efforts and accomplishments of the membership were recognized. Particular efforts received much earned recognition.

2019 officer of the year Not a big surprise that our Officer of the Year is the often overlooked Lodge secretary Merle Evans. He keeps our Lodge functioning and makes sure we stick to the rules that make our Lodge one of the best in the state. Anyone who knows anything about the Elks knows we would be lost without him.
2019 Elk of the Year This years Elk of the Year for Lodge 572 is Selena McBride. She helps our Lodge whenever she is asked, and contributes whenever there is a need. Her surprise and tears upon the announcement of this award is testament that she is deserving of this honor. She did not expect it; but that proves she more than deserved it.

On Wednesday, March 20th, our Lodge welcomed twelve new members into the Order. Be sure to introduce yourself when you see them in the Lodge...more.

March Madness

Come cheer on your favorite teams during the annual March Madness Tournament in the comfort of our Lodge. We are opening at 12 Noon on Sundays in March, for the pleasure of our Elk Hoop enthusiasts. As was true for the NFL football season, food will be provided by various members. Come join the fun.....maybe even sign up to bring in a food dish, on a given Sunday.

The Murder Mystery Dinner Party scheduled for Saturday, March 30th has been cancelled. It is expected to be re-scheduled for another date.

New Lodge Year Begins April 1

Dues Notices will be arriving shortly, except for those members who have already paid in advance. Key cards for the coming year will be BLUE, and will match the membership cards. Our 3 Key Card Readers will be changed to operate with these cards, on April 1. Remember - a new, 2019 - 2020 Card is required for attendance at all Lodge, House, and Board of Directors' Meetings, starting this date. (Special Note - Due to awaiting a vote on changing the State dues assessment at the January IEA Meeting in Springfield, your notices are running behind schedule this year. Thus, there will likely be a backlog of getting all cards out by the April 1 date, for those paying the last week or two in March. We ask your patience in this situation. If you pay before April 1, but do not receive your card by then, you may have to ring in to Club Room for a short period until we are caught up! Where necessary, the Lodge Secretary can verify current dues payment, for purpose of Meeting attendance. Except for April, you must NOT be on a given Month's CLMS Delinquent list (as of day 1 of the month) in order to participate in the Queen of Hearts Raffle, or Monthly, or Daily Drawings, for the entirety of that month (April exception is due to logistics of card issuance.). And, usually around June 1, we enforce the "No Club Room Privileges" for delinquent members. Reminders & particulars will appear in Newsletter, the month prior to enforcement.
