Greetings From The Station Of Fidelity,

Greetings My Brothers & Sisters,
    August was a very busy month at our Lodge. On August 5th, I & several of our Lodge Officers went to the DD Clinic & Kick Off Dinner in Hesperia. Lancaster Lodge always has a good attendance. I am so proud to be the Exalted Ruler. Randy P. Shook. Is our new Grand Lodge Exalted Ruler. His Slogan for 2023-2024 is “We Are THE ELKS”, Those words will proudly and loudly be chanted at the Clinic’s, Conventions and throughout our Lodges. As he and his Wife, Wanda, travels the country they will be promoting community service programs. These programs build stronger communities while stimulating a response that motivates worthy members of the public to seek ELK membership. In this way, our community service builds the foundation for our future. So, as it is stressed in the bulletin of our Lodge. “How Do We Get New Members?” “Ask Them!” September 9th the Lodge will be hosting a “Members Appreciation Dinner” I will be the chairman of this event and I plan to have several speakers that will help you understand in depth the amount of time our volunteers put into making each event enjoyable to our members and guests. Please mark your calendar and plan to attend. REMEMBER, if you see someone sitting by themselves invite them to join your table. My motto is “No One Sits Alone!” Jerry Mundell implemented another motto in 2022-2023, “Never let a lady or physically challenged person leave the Lodge alone. Escort them to their car safely.” I am happy to report that both mottos are implemented on a daily basis automatically by our caring members. If you haven’t visited our Lancaster Lodge 1625 Facebook page lately, you ar3e in for a pleasant surprise. Our very own Esquire, Luis Garcia has done an amazing job with the new look of the fliers as well as keeping you updated daily on the happenings of our Lodge. Kudos to you, Luis, from your most grateful fellow Elks. Until next month, Be Safe and Stay Well.

Your Exalted Ruler,
Marcy Simily

Greetings From The Station Of Charity,

  The car show was fun, exciting, and beneficial to our lodge. It brought Elks together in an amazing way. My thank you list is big, but I will not dare to start naming names — you know who you are! Your selfless actions of volunteering and donating money and raffle items made the car show successful. I can’t thank you enough. I will continue this legacy that started 10 years ago by our own member, KJ. Next year's date is reserved for May 4, 2024. Please save the date and look forward to a fun day again at the Elks by the Elks. May God bless you all and keep you safe until we meet again.

Your Esteemed Leading Knight,

  Before looking forward into September & beyond I want to step back and give one last note of appreciation to all those who made Western Night a great success. Through your participation we are now positioned to support scholarships within our lodge to the local community. That being said, we now enter the last 4 month of this calendar year and a busy 4 months it is. Of course scholarship activity is now being marketed to the local high schools for Most Valuable Student Scholarships and, as of September 1st , the Legacy Scholarship is now open to children & grandchildren of Elks members in website at Elks.Org. Keeping a focus on other activities we will be hosting Trunk or Treat with a Haunted House on Tuesday, October 31st, Hoop Shoot Contest on Saturday, November 18th and the Children’s Christmas Party on Saturday, December 16th. In old Navy terms this will call for “All Hands On Deck” to be successful. I have set 3 sign-up sheets (Cars for Trunk or Treat, Set up & removal of Haunted House, and also Haunted House Support on the evening of the 31st). I look forward to lots of candy donations to begin rolling in, so we don’t run out. Starting early next month I will lay out a sign-up sheet for Hoop Shoot. Remember my brothers & Sisters that the children are our future and providing an opportunity for some small joy in their life creates a memory that can make a difference!

Your Esteemed Loyal Knight,
Mike Barnum

Greetings From The Station Of Brotherly Love,

Well, it’s hard to believe it is September already. Seems like last week we were saying "Happy New Year." Now that the new school year has started, I just want to remind everyone to please drive safe and keep your eyes out for children crossing the street. The Antelope Valley Fair is going to be held this month from September 23rd to October 1st. It is always a fun time, with concerts, monster trucks, demolition derby, great vendors and of course the food. Hope everyone tries to make it out there this year. 22 years ago this month, we were awakened by the news of the deliberate airplane crashes. Let us all take a moment on September 11th and remember all the lives that were lost. I was reading some of these quotes and thought they were so true and meant alot. • “If we learn nothing else from this tragedy, we learn that life is short and there is no time for hate.” —Sandy Dahl, wife of Flight 93 pilot Jason Dahl, • "Even the smallest act of service, the simplest act of kindness, is a way to honor those we lost, a way to reclaim that spirit of unity that followed 9/11." —President Obama in a 2011 radio address • “It was the worst day we have ever seen, but it brought out the best in all of us.” —Senator John Kerry Well, I hope everyone has a great September.

Greetings From Chaplain

Is there anything that says we are nearing the end of summer like Labor Day and our local A.V. Fair and Alfalfa Festival? The first Monday in September is when we celebrate Labor Day weekend. Schools and many sports events traditionally begin about this time. If you are at all concerned about fashion, you see it as a signal to cut back on wearing white seersucker! I don’t know about you, but this time of year, I love the cool and quiet of the early morning, when that slight chill tells me fall is near. It’s when the wind comes about, blowing stronger in the skies high above, stretching the clouds across and painting the sunset skies with “mare’s tails.” The late John Denver sings about the serenity of a clear blue mountain morn. Then just after the fair, suddenly, summer is done. All in all, no matter where you sit, or when, it’s the perfect time ton give thanks for the many blessings in our lives, and to share with others. A time to renew our commitment to Charity, Justice, Brotherly Love and our Fidelity to our Obligation. Amen.

Your Chaplain,
Steve Lindsey
