Veterans Day 11-10-2011

Thanksgiving 2011

Message from the Exalted Ruler – November 2011

Dear Fellow 248 Members,

I hope you enjoyed the letter from Dave Neely, President of Iowa Elk Association, in my last newsletter. I thought I needed to share that.

After an Indian summer our weather has turned more seasonal. The calendar also tells us that some activities are behind us: the State Soccer Shoot, which was a huge success with participants from all around the state – from Ashland to Sheboygan! State Elks President Dave Assman and First Lady Lois were very impressed. Thank you Roman Baca, Chuck Berens and all the volunteers! The Fall Golf outing was also great thanks to Joel Rhyner and Tim Joliffe. Thank you to Jackie Heitmann and Herb Lessmiller and the volunteers for this years Art World fundraiser. The End of Summer Party will certainly grow as all that attended had great food and a great time! Thanks Growth Committee!!! Thank you Aaron & Annie Opper and again the Growth Committee for a successful Kids & Adult Halloween Party. Wausau lodge 248 was well represented at the State Elks Association Fall Conference in Waukesha. Chuck & Marilyn, with the support of our members, provided the Northeast District with a great taste of Wausau hospitality.

***Please note that the monthly Ladies Luncheon/Card Party is discontinued. The October luncheon was the last one because of continuing low participation it is not fiscally possible to continue. SORRY LADIES. Those of you who would like to continue getting together informally as a group may consider doing this on Friday as the dining room is open for lunch for all members & guests. November 1 is our Widow’s Banquet. See you there.

PER Marty Sullivan is working vigorously to honor our Veterans on 11/10/11 with a reception. Please see the details elsewhere in the newsletter. Yes, we know Veteran’s Day is 11/11/11! The Veteran Reception is scheduled the evening before because 11/11 is a Friday and a wedding reception is also scheduled at the lodge that night. Lucky guy, how could he possible forget an 11/11/11 wedding anniversary! PLEASE JOIN US 11/10/11 AND HONOR A VETERAN!!

November is also Deer Hunting, those of you that do, please be careful and good luck. It’s ok to come out of the woods to bring your family and friends to the Elk’s for our Thanksgiving Dinner. Then, as you know, its time for the full of turkey, afternoon nap! Please mark you calendar, and enter it on your electronic device, the Elk’s Memorial Service, December 4th. To me this is the most significant occasion of the Elk year. Pleased to serve my Brothers & Sisters.

Sincerely and Fraternally,

Henry Lamovec

Message from the Exalted Ruler – October 2011

Dear Fellow 248 Members,

Thank You to all members and friends that helped make our Brewer trip, Soccer shoot, Golf
outings, Art World and our Adult Summer Picnic successes! The things that we do as Elks do
make a difference! This is why I have submitted this letter in this issue. Thank You to Becky
Rizuto, she is the unnamed bartender and member in the letter. Iowa State Elks President, Mr.
Dave Neeley told me we are a very active Lodge, in comparison, and our picnic was great
too! Be proud to be a Wausau Elk! As always check the complete bulletin and calendar for
upcoming events. Welcome back bowlers.

Sincerely and Fraternally,

Henry Lamovec
