Silver City Donates Shoes to First Graders

May 26, 2017

On Wednesday May 24th 2017 Members of the Silver City Elks Lodge 413 were out in force and presented a new pair of shoes to First Graders at Hurley, Bayard, Central, and to First and Second Graders at San Lorenzo Elementary Schools 120 children overall.

This is part of the Elks Community Investment Program and was made possible by a Gratitude Grant from the Elks National Foundation. In the presentation of the shoes, Students were encouraged to stay active, continue to read, and ‘run away’ from drugs during the Summer.

As Elk’s Members, we believe and practice Elks Care and Elks Share by donating some $40,000 plus locally and over $300 million across the nation every year. Our primary focus is on Veterans and Youth. Each year we give every 3rd grader in both Silver and Cobre School Districts a new dictionary and support many of the athletic and academic programs. We encourage the principles of Charity, Justice, Brotherly Love, and Fidelity. If you have any interest in being a part of the Elks or would like more information you may find it at www.silvercityelks.comand www.elks.org.

Officer Training to Start

The beginning of the 2017 Lodge year is upon us, and that means each Lodge will soon be visited by your friendly Officer Training facilitators. This year we have some new folks heading your way:

Denise Dawson, from Raton 969 for the Southwest, Jerry Wheeler, from Las Cruces 1119 for the Southeast, Mary Rogers from Farmington 1747 for the Northwest, and, well, making a return (and hopefully final) appearance, Dan Gerth, from Los Alamos 2083 for the Northeast.

Sessions will be starting the last weekend in February, and run through the end of April. Each Lodge will receive a letter from your facilitator asking you to set a date for your training, and don’t dilly-dally, as there really isn’t a lot of room! Note that you do not need to wait for your Officers to be installed to set a date, you should be pretty sure right now who will be coming in.

As usual, we’ve added some new information to the presentation, so it will be fresh, and well worth your while. All officers (including appointed officers) are expected to attend, and all members are very welcome. Come and Learn what the Statutes actually say!


It’s That Time!

Well folks, hard to believe that February is here, and that means…New Officers (and committee chairs)! 1st meeting, nominations, 2nd meeting, elections. And, all you Lodge Secretaries get to enter all that information into CLMS. The state directory is also starting up, and we use the CLMS information to build the database, so we are counting on y’all to get the information in quickly, and please, double check for accuracy.

I really want to put the directory out to everyone by the end of May, so I’m counting on you to get your CLMS updates in as soon as possible.





Pictures Needed!

We would like to have a picture of your Lodge on the information popup that appears when you click on a flag on the Lodges map. That way visitors have an idea what to look for when they are trying to find you.

It doesn’t have to be an Ansel Adams masterpiece, just step outside and use your phone camera. Please email them to dgerth1116@gmail.com and I’ll get them on the site.

So far we have Albuquerque, Los Alamos and Roswell. Don’t be left out!



Spring Convention!

Spring Convention will be here before you know it! Mark your calendars, March 29 – April 2, at the  Isleta Resort Casino. This year we are planning to jazz things up a little, so don’t miss it! Registration forms are available on the Spring Convention page on the Members Only side. Remember – all Elks in good standing must register if they are attending the convention.
The schedule of events and business meeting agenda will be posted as soon as they are finalized.

See you at Isleta!
