Greetings From The Station Of Fidelity,
    June is here already, and we have only just begun with our many events planned for future fund raisers here at Lancaster Lodge 1625. The month of May was a very busy month for us. We were honored to host the Ritual Competition for the Inland District. Seven lodges participated in the contest including our lodge. Our officers rehearsed faithfully every week to be the best that we could be. It was a very busy weekend of planning, cooking & serving meals, entertainment by “Daddy O”, landscape uplift, providing a beautiful lodge room for the competition and accommodation for our guests at a hotel near the lodge. I am so proud of our members for stepping up and working tirelessly to make sure everything went smoothly. We received rave reviews from everyone including the dignitaries for our hospitality. Thank you very much. I applaud you all for Job Well done!
  As I write this article some of our officers are preparing to go to the 108th Annual CHEA State Convention in Palm Springs. May 17-20th 2023. We are looking forward to the Exalted Rulers March May 20, 2023. As your Exalted Ruler, I am so honored to represent Lancaster Lodge 1625. “Rage Of The Sage” as I join the others and walk across the stage to announce our Elks lodge contribution to the Purple Pig, which is making this event the highlight of the convention. We will meet “Ashay the CHEA Theme Child” Our therapists and pediatric vision screeners continue to provide services in homes, schools, and communities. It is through your ongoing efforts, unity, and loyalty that these children are receiving care so that they can Walk, Talk, See & Play. As always, we continue to have a need for the Lodge’s donations so that we may continue to provide these services to the children of California and Hawaii Major Projects. Don’t forget to Check out our monthly bulletin and calendar posted on our Facebook page. Until next month Be Safe and Stay Well.

Your Exalted Ruler,
Marcy Simily

Greetings From The Station Of Charity,

  I just got back from the state convention, and I want to share this with you: What a treat it was when I witnessed the introduction of the 2023 Theme Child Aushay from Santa Rosa, California. This was my first experience, and yes, it was an eye opening experience. This is when I realized what we are all about. When you see the professional level of Elkdom in regard to what we do out there for young human beings who truly need all the help they can receive, then you will say to yourself, “it's okay to volunteer as hard as I can, donate as much as possible, and to be creative on how to bring more money to the cause.” There is no way on earth you will not get emotional when you hear all the medical problems this young boy has and what a difference we are all making in his and his parents’ lives. Brothers and sisters, God bless us all for what we do! We truly make a difference. Also, I want to remind you that July is around the corner. This means the KJ’s car show is too. Save the date: July 29th from 9 am to 1 pm. We need all the help we can get, and we need canopies and raffle Items. Please contact me if you need any additional Information at 818-588-5728. May God bless you all and keep you safe

Greetings From The Station Of Justice

  I want to start by thanking those who have helped my transition into the role of Loyal Knight. With all their help, we have started strong with events for Drug Prevention & Awareness in both April and May. For those who have provided additional ideas to engage young people for Drug Prevention & Awareness also my many thanks. With Ritual now complete (great job by all) & upcoming California-Hawaii Elks Annual Convention quickly approaching time is flying . I look forward to all the opportunities & challenges ahead in support of our kids activities which saw such great membership participation and success last year.

Your Esteemed Loyal Knight,
Mike Barnum

Greetings From The Station Of Brotherly Love,

Happy June from the station of the Lecturing Knight. We have some important stuff going on this month. First off we have Flag Dag on Wednesday, June 14th. Please bring in any old or torn flags. Sunday, June 18th is Fathers Day. Please join us for a tribute to all Fathers. On another note: There is plenty to do for all Members. If you have not recently attended the weekly meetings, get involved, and join a committee. We need your participation in all aspects of continuing the great reputation of our Lodge. It would be nice to share some of these necessary obligations. With so many new Members this year, it is an opportunity to join with others in benefiting our Lodge.

Your Esteemed Lecturing Knight,
Jean Alcala

Greetings From Chaplain

Does anything bring the heart of Elkdom to swell like celebrating Flag Day? Our celebration of Flag Day began in the time of the American Revolution celebrating the flag sewn by Betsy Ross, with the numbers of stars and stripes representing the thirteen original colonies. In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson issued a proclamation that officially established June 14 as Flag Day; on August 3, 1949, National Flag Day was established by an Act of Congress. The late country music star Johnny Cash struck a chord that still resonates deep emotions today, with his song, “That Ragged Old Flag”. If you are so inclined, join me in a prayer that “the observance of Flag Day show that patriotism is a vital and living factor in the lives of all Elks. May we as good citizens never be complacent or negative to the observance of this day. May it remind us to be ever determined that America will always remain the land of the free and the home of the brave”. Thanks to Father Kevin W. Cassidy for the use of his words.

Your Chaplain,
Steve Lindsey
