I am honored to be serving as Exalted Ruler of Viera Lodge #2817 of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks again. I would like to share with you that to a person, all of you I have asked to help in some form or fashion have immediately said yes!! Thank you one and all for your service and your continuing commitment to your Lodge and Elkdom. We had two outstanding dinners in July with DVP Tom’s steak and shrimp followed by PER Marty’s “Christmas in July.” In both cases, the House Committee had the Lodge looking great. Check the calendar this month, as we have plenty to choose from with a schedule of breakfasts, dinners, bingo, trivia, tacos, spaghetti AND another “meat shoot” run by our own PSP John Harris. Please avail yourselves of all your Lodge has to offer. Food service is available daily at the Lodge. In closing, please remember all that we do is for the “Good of the Order.” Viera Lodge may not be the largest Lodge, but we have one of the biggest collective hearts in all of Elkdom. Until next month, stay safe and stay healthy. God bless each of you, and may God bless America.
