Last night a Fish & Chip Dinner was served and though the turnout was light a good time was had by all.
Money was earned for the Purple Pig from 4 horse races. Dave Naccarato and Catherine Koeritz ended the evening with a parody abut the adventures attending the Grand Lodge Convention in Phoenix with the heat and the dessert.
In as much as we are in the midst of summer, it wasn’t that long ago that our ER and First Lady Steve and Pam Smith found themselves braving the elements as they promoted the world of Elkdom.
While Train Engineer Gerry Gillies drove the Elks train in the Santa Maria parade under a well built cover, you can see the elements were a little more “in your face” for the Smith’s.
Conejo Valley Days 2011 has come and gone…but the memories linger on!
May 4-8 saw the residents of Conejo Valley focus on fun and food as they gathered for the 55th Annual Conejo Valley Days. Members from the BBQ Teams donated hundreds of hours to bring the community our wonderful BBQ meals.
Enjoy the video from previous years as shown on YouTube or a few of the pictures from the lodge this year.

Wednesday July 6, 2011 the CHEA Vice President, Christine Moyers from San Luis Obispo Elks Lodge #322 made her official Visitation to the Thousand Oaks Elks Lodge $2477.
She complimented our Lodge for 34 dollar per capita member to the Major Project Purple Pig. Also gave credit to Carl Lanterman for the work with the veterans,
The main thrust of the Presidents message was Aloha to everyone and the importance of membership retention.
Certificates for donations to the Purple Pig went to Richard Goldner, PDDGER, Christine Moyers in appreciation of her visit and JB Bre for her donation to the Purple Pig.
