News, Notices and Announcements
#GivingTuesday may have passed, but the spirit of giving is still alive!
This week, the ENF celebrated #GivingTuesday— a nationally recognized day of giving back. After the excitement of Black Friday and Cyber Monday savings, are you ready to give back this holiday season?
Sunday, November 11, 2018, is Veterans Day. At the eleventh minute of the 11th hour of this day we should all take a minute to remember our veterans, especially those who sacrificed all so that we can live in a free society.
To commemorate our veterans I am attaching below how the Elks started what is now the Veterans Administration. See below:
Read DD Vince Ditta's important message on Veterans Day, Nov. 11, 2018. We should all honor our Veterans for their sacrifices above and beyond the call of duty.
Read DD Rochford's moving message of what Elks do to help our Veterans, especially those that are homeless or newly moved into permanent housing. No vet should be homeless but the Elks have stepped to the plate to help those vets in need.
The crane that was to help with the erection of steel for our Rooftop Project today broke down, and the work has been cancelled.
So the Lodge is open! Our acting Secretary and intrepid chef Greg Mills will be preparing a nice buffet for all those who want to drop into the Lodge to watch football or just socialize.
From the Elks National Organization press release:
"Chicago, IL, October 11, 2018: An estimated twenty-two million veterans live in our communities. The Elks National President, Michael T. Luhr, has proclaimed November to be Veterans Remembrance Month as a way to encourage us to reach out to local Veterans and offer your support.
Notice to all members friends and guests of the Summit Elks Lodge: The Lodge will be closed on Sunday October 28th, 2018 to accommodate the continued construction of our Rooftop Bar and Terrace project.
The Summit Elks Lodge will be closed on Sunday, October 21, 2108 to accommodate a delivery of steel on that day for our Rooftop Bar and Terrace Project.
We will reopen at 4 p.m. on Monday, October 22, 2018.
We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience.
