1 Volume 08 Number 12 March 2009 Hollywood West Elks Lodge BPOE #2365 March 2009 Volume 08 Number 12 Jesse Clemence Exalted Ruler Exalted Rulers Message This should have been my last message of my year, but somehow that I really can t recall, here I am back again for another year as ER. Let s make this the best year and I am relying on everyone s help to accomplish that. (I do have an appointment with a shrink this month, though). I feel that this year was good; we accomplished projects that have been only in the talking stages in the past. There are more ideas that need to become a reality. A woman s committee is in the forming stages to brainstorm functions and dinners for our enjoyment. (They seem to get things rolling.) See Donna Powers if you are interested in being a part of the team. I have also selected someone to coordinate our PER association by having a monthly meeting. We have a lot of active PER S in the lodge, we just have to satisfy Grand Lodge by having a meeting. I am looking for a Chaplain and an Esquire for this year. Let me know if you are interested. My personal thanks to PER Brad Lewis and his volunteers for setting up a BBQ at the BARC housing facility on 2/21. Doing things out in the community is what we are about. I went to the VA nursing home in Pembroke Pines for the show that the Elks support, Re-Creation (college students that travel and put on a musical show for the vets). I got a DVD of their show at the lodge if anyone wants to see it. Installation of incoming officers will be on Sunday, March 29 th at 4:00 pm with a collation to follow. I need PER S for installing the new officers. Please call me, Fraternally, Jesse Clemence / Exalted Ruler OFFICIAL DUES NOTICE FOR HOLLYWOOD WEST ELKS Lodge #2365.

Elks Charity News Lodge 2365 The Lodge continues to support Hollywood West Elks Lodge ~ Children s Therapy ~ The Harry-Anna Trust ~ ~The Florida Youth Camp ~ Boy Scouts of America ~ ~ Elks National Foundation ~ ~ Sandy Nininger State Veterans Nursing Home ~ ~Women In Distress ~ Kids In Distress~ Thank you to ER Jesse Clemence for contributing $900 from his Football Charity fundraiser to the Lodge. He gave $300 to ENF, $300 to Harri-Anna and $300 to Childrens Therapy for the Lodge. Thank you to all the members donating time and money for the bar to be built in the Chickee hut. It certainly is coming along great. The donations are sure keeping us busy distributing them. We have been over to Susan B Anthony with more huggy Bears and slightly used clothing for the women & children. We also donated 2 bags of nurses uniforms scrubs to women at Holy Cross hospital. We took another ten large bags of clothing and several boxes to goodwill and WID thrift stores. The Lodge approved sending $500 to ENF for our per capita donations. We also sent $105 to District for our contribution to the Re-creation show for the VA nursing home. It helps pay for the lodging and meals for the entertainers. By the time this goes to press, we will have done the bbq at BARC housing that PER Brad Lewis has planned for 2/21. It will be for all their residents. It s a great community project for all. Keep up the good work, everyone! Fraternally, Jeanne Coffey, PER Community Welfare Chairperson Special thanks to Nancy Lombardi of Pleasure travel agency for inviting 20 of our members for a tour and luncheon aboard the new ship, Independence of the Seas, docked at Port Everglades. We had a great tour director, an outstanding lunch and even some wine tasting. A VERY nice day!
7 Volume 08 Number 12 Page 7 Secretary s Corner Here we are almost at the end of our fiscal year and rushing towards a new one. Where does time go so fast? The office is going along smoother with the grand lodge CLMS program on the computer. Information exchange with Grand Lodge is more efficient. Our new accountant, Judy Harden has helped set up the office with Excel programs, for me to help keep a closer daily track of our finances, in this sad economy. I believe it s been a help to the ER, house committee and trustees to keep a handle on finances. I am still waiting for our new memberships cards from Grand Lodge, so those that have paid dues, please be patient. Barbara Henry, PER, and Michael Mammarelli are requesting transfer demits from #2273 into our lodge. Calling All Elks and Families! Calling All Elks and Families! We are looking for ways to energize our lodge! Now that the chickee hut is up, let s get more members, spouses, children, significant others and friends in to enjoy our facilities! Remember Karaoke Idol? Now that we have Karaoke on some Friday nights, why not resurrect Idol as a fun way to promote camaraderie and raise money for charity? Have an idea for new dinners? Let s put them all to work in our kitchen together! We will be holding a meeting soon with members, spouses whoever wants to come to brainstorm ways to revitalize our lodge and have fun at the same time! Bernal Lewis, PER, is requesting life membership. Raymond Morton, #2029, requests reinstatement to our Lodge. We have achieved our ENF per capita for the year. Grand Lodge requested 4.25 from us, we have donated Good for us! I will have the charity book final figures for April bulletin. Should be looking great for this past year.

It s not medals won with pride. It s for that feeling deep inside. It s not for money, it s not for fame. It s not for any personal gain. It s just for love of fellow man. It s just to lend a helping hand. It s just to give a little of self. That s something you can t buy with wealth. It s that reward down in your heart. It s feeling that you ve been part of helping others, far and near. That makes you be a volunteer!
