Wallingford Elks Lodge - Painting by Norma J. O'Keefe


Members All,


Hope you all enjoyed the Holidays and are ready to begin the new year. To those of you that have made resolutions, I wish you success in carrying them out. The members of the Lodge had a busy end of the year with another successful turkey shoot. On December 3rd, the Officers of the lodge performed a beautiful memorial service for our members that passed away this year, and served over seventy dinners to their families and to other members in attendance.
On December 10th, several members worked at the Special People’s Christmas Party.
Also, on December 17th we held our annual Elks Kids Christmas Party with Santa passing out gifts for both events. Thank you to the members that donated enormous amounts of cookies & baked goods for
both events.
A special thank you to Elroy for making a special appearance at both events.
We have many amazing members at our lodge that have worked very hard and giving of their time in making life brighter for others.
A very special thank you goes out to John Letourneau for the giving of his time in making our two chandeliers in the hall look like new again.
Over and over, you prove that Elks care and Elks share.

May the New Year bring joy and comfort to all. Remember, my door will always be open.

God Bless our members - and - God Bless the United States of America.
