Greetings From The Station Of Fidelity,

Greetings My Brothers & Sisters,
    November is here already and I’m sure you are getting ready for the end of the year holidays as is our Lodge members. The first week of November, several of our Lodge Officers and other members will be attending the California-Hawaii Elks Association Mid-Term Conference in Riverside, CA. This will be my first time attending this very important event. The 4-day agenda that is planned for us will be full of meetings, classes, speakers & delicious food. I’m proud to be your Exalted Ruler and share my experience and plans for the future of our Lancaster Lodge 1625. November events will fill the calendar and invite you all to participate. Starting with a Paint & Sip Class which is always a huge success. We’ll have a Purple Pig Night, Bunco Night & Veterans Breakfast as well as laying a wreath @ Joshua Memorial Cemetery’s Veterans Program. If you have never attended this very special event, please do so this year. As I did, you will be swept away with emotions as we honor our Fallen Heros. The Hoop Shoot Contest is also this month. We will be celebrating Thanksgiving at the Lodge with a feast as always with our members & guests, providing their favorite Holiday dish to share. Let the festivities begin! We round off November with DDGER, Rose Marie Johnsons’ visitation to our Lodge. We are looking forward to your visit, Rose Marie. Remember, my brothers and sisters, the Order of Elks is distinctively American. Linking the destiny of our Order with destiny of our Country we have made its Flag the symbol of the crowning virtue. Until next month, be safe and stay well.

Your Exalted Ruler,
Marcy Simily

  As the November Calendar is published, we finish the end of October with the kids Trunk or Treat activity in full swing. To all those many people who have stepped forward and participated I want to express my sincere appreciation. With October in the rear-view mirror, the signup sheet for Hoop Shoot is now out! From people staffing the sign-in table, ball shaggers, referee, and score keepers we can use the help on Saturday morning November 18th to have fun and provide a positive experience for these youngsters. Please, join in for this joyful event at New Vista Middle School less than a mile from our Lodge. Finally, lest we forget, the children’s Christmas Toy Drive has begun, so find it in your heart to bring in a gift for a child who might otherwise go without.

Greetings From The Station Of Brotherly Love,

As we move into the month of November, let us reflect on all the things we should be thankful for. We have Veterans Day, Saturday November 11th, we are thankful for ALL our veterans. Thankful that we live in a country where we practically can do anything we want. There is so much to be thankful for, just look around and you might be surprised. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving everyone.

Greetings From Chaplain

The late author, Stephen Covey, left us with many concepts to consider, including his writings about the rules of the school vs. the laws of the farm. He offered the idea that in school, one might be able to put off studying until the big exam draws near, then cram like crazy just in the nick of time to pass the course. By contrast, try to imagine how this idea would work on the farm where careful planning over the course of months and years is required, with dedicated daily hard work and attention to the plan to achieve any hope of success. If the farmer makes it through growing season and gets a fair price at market, then there might be cause for a Fall Festival, and a Happy Thanksgiving. The same can be said for any job or business, right.? As Thanksgiving approaches, most folks feel the love for family and friends, and appreciation for our good health and well-being. As Elks, we give thanks for friends in our Lodge, and especially for those who come to see what they can give, those who volunteer to keep everything running smoothly and in good working order. We can also be thankful for living our Obligation, and the warmth of those in our lives who do the same. May this be a time that brings us in better focus with the principles of our Order: Charity, Justice, Brotherly Love and Fidelity to our Obligation. Whatever your beliefs, however you celebrate this beautiful fall season, please enjoy a Happy Thanksgiving! Steve Lindsey Chaplain

Your Chaplain,
Steve Lindsey
