Antelope Valley CERT Training Class

The Antelope Valley CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) recently graduated 25 CERT trained volunteers in a CERT Basic Class held at the Lancaster Elks Lodge. "This was an outstanding partnership between CERT, Los Angeles County Fire and Sheriff Departments, and the Elks" said Mark Hagan, lead instructor and Lancaster Team Captain. This training will provide a high quality CERT course and actions customized to serve Lancaster residents and the local community during disasters.

"This is well in the scope of Elkdom and our outreach and service to the community" stated the Lodge's Exalted Ruler Ilona Kelemen. "Our lodge has teamed with the local CERT team to locate an emergency supplies container on lodge property for the local community and to host future CERT classes in our lodge. We look forward to growing this relationship."

The CERT Basic Class covers modules and practical skills training on Disaster Preparedness, Fire Suppression, Triage and Treatment in a Disaster Medical Operations Environment, “Light” Search and Rescue, the CERT Organization, the Incident Command System (ICS), Disaster Psychology, and Terrorism. This class was focused on training citizens to be ready to help one another and aid in response efforts to minimize the overall impact of a disaster and aid in expediting recovery efforts. Students took the challenge and were willing to be part of aiding themselves, their neighbors, and the local community in time of need, and promote the need to be prepared, ready to respond and recover. Thanks to the Elks, LA County Fire Department, LA Sheriff Department, and members of our local CERT program here in the Antelope Valley for the team effort. Lancaster CERT plans to hold this class annually in January at the Lodge, in additions to other dates and places in the Antelope Valley. We are very blessed to have an excellent local teaching team and community support.

Elks Lodge 1625 Annual Pasadena Trip
Off to Pasadena we go!
  January 13, 25 members from Lancaster Lodge got on the bus headed for Pasadena. Sandwich’s and liquid libations were loaded aboard as we left at 5:00 pm. We rode to Pasadena in comfort watching the movie Jaws 3 as a silent movie. There were, however, many sound effects made by the members on board. Upon arriving at Pasadena, we were greeted by several of the members of their Lodge and welcomed by them. Their Lodge is an incredible building and really fun to see. We were then directed to go downstairs to their restaurant area for an absolutely fabulous dinner.
  There were four different entrees of steak, chicken, pasta with sausage, or fish. I can say the steak was outstanding. After dinner we joined their Lodge meeting for Good of the Order where prizes were awarded to members who had bought tickets. Then came the highlight of the meeting, when some of the items that mysteriously disappeared from our Lodge (the last time Pasadena visited our Lodge) were auctioned off, mostly to our members. It was all in fun and the members of Pasadena were great hosts, We then presented a stuffed elk to the ER of Pasadena who was named “Elkie”. It was quite heavy since it was stuffed with quarters. The ER was very grateful and thanked us for our generosity. The trip home was uneventful as many went to sleep. It was indeed a wonderful trip and we are looking forward to their visit to our Lodge in August and our trip to their Lodge next year. Bill

Elks Lodge 1625 Annual Lamb BBQ
Lancaster lodge celebrated its annual Lamb BBQ (and chicken) on Saturday, October 5th.
Unbeknownst to many, this annual event, held on the first Saturday of October is to celebrate our lodge's anniversary, in this case, our 80th. A delicious dinner featuring lamb steaks, chicken, scalloped potatoes, country beans, salad and rolls was proudly prepared.

  Those who came to the wine tasting party had an enjoyable night of fun and fellowship. The evening started by everyone being introduced to the different wines available. There were two companies who presented wines to be tasted, Terry and Brian Wilson from D’Vine Wine Bar, Victorville, and Golden Star Vineyards, Littlerock.
  Wanda and Barney provided cheese, bread, crackers, fruit, chocolate and an assortment of other goodies, as well as, most, (if not all) of the raffle prizes. Wanda also provided listening music for the enjoyment of all. Later in the evening the raffle was held along with the 50/50 drawing.
  It was all legit, but that particular table did win a lot of the prizes Although Bob is not in the picture, he was one of the Hancock table. . A big thank you goes out to all who came to the party even if you were not wine drinkers. A special thanks goes out to the members who came from Mojave Lodge to support our fund raiser. We should try to return the favor by attending their fund raiser rib cook-off, October 18, 19, and 20. RV spots are available.
A special thanks goes to the helpers, Cynthia Brehm, Sheila Mundell, Nancy Jo Hatfield and Karen Campbell for the beautiful necklace she donated. All in all, everyone had a great time of fun, fellowship and relaxation. If you couldn’t make it this time, try not to miss it next time. Don’t miss a great party twice.
