We Are Urging All Members to Attend Our September and October Meetings

We are urging all members of our Lodge to attend our September and October meetings. We will be discussing some important issues confronting the Lodge and wish to have as much participation as possible.

The second September meeting will take place on Wednesday, September 19, 2018 starting at 8 p.m.

We are asking members to notify us if they plan to attend, as we may not be able to accommodate all attendees in the Lodge meeting room if too many decide to attend, and will make arrangements for a different meeting place.

In Memoriam: Savino "Skip" DeFeo

It is with great sadness and we report that long time Summit Elk and good friend to many, Savino "Skip" DeFeo passed away in his home in Summit on August 5, 2018. Skip was a friend to so many fellow Elks that they are hard to count. He was a regular at the Summit Elks Lodge on Maple Street and always had a warm greeting and a smile for all who came in. We will miss him greatly.

The Eleventh Hour Toast, Done by Past Exalted Ruler Mike Williams and Lois Pagano

Our Past Exalted Ruler Mike Williams is the master of the Elks Eleventh Hour Toast. For those new members who are unfamiliar with it, the toast is as old as the Order itself.

To see it done correctly, watch Mike perform it together with Lodge Secretary Lois Pagano, and Leading Knight Rick Wolffe chiming the hour of eleven strokes.
