Egg Nog Party - A Lodge Tradition
The Officers hosted Egg Nog Party schedule for December 21st is “For the Members”.
Last year, we had to do a little “education” to our newer members what this function was: Free snacks and Egg Nog…while it lasts. Boy, do you guys turn out. That is what it is for. Sort of a “member  appreciation” along with cranking up a little “Holiday Spirit”.
We’ve made  arrangement to have more food and will have that wonderful Egg Nog.
Come on out and enjoy the evening with us.

                                   ---------------

Elks lodge would like to continue to honor our Veterans throughout the year.  A list of our lodge members who served our country can be seen HERE.

If you are a Veteran and would like to be added to this list, please contact the lodge secretary.

 

T or C Veteran’s Christmas Fund Drive ‘HURTING”

Last month, we said the T or C Veteran’s Home Christmas Fund Drive was “struggling”. Now, we are declaring “Def Com 1”…We are in “Crisis Mode”.
Never, in the past 10 years, have we not collected $5,000. But it looks like this is the year we won’t. We only have collected $3,106 (As of November 15th) which means we won’t be able to do for the Veterans at the T or C Home what we have been able to do in the past.
Many new members don’t know what this fund drive is. Briefly, there are about 110 veterans, most all alone, who spend the remaining years of their lives in the Truth or Consequences Veteran’s Home. This is our oldest lodge charity program.  Other charity programs have
come and gone but this one remains because of your generosity.

Help Needed for Christmas Food Basket Distribution!
If you have a pick-up truck and a few hours on Saturday, December 17th we could sure use your help.
Meet at the La Tienda Thriftway Loading dock at 10:00 a.m. to assist with the annual distribution of Thanksgiving
Food Baskets to needy families here in Carlsbad.
