A Special Thanks from the PER BBQ Team

On Saturday June 29th it was hot.  I mean Africa Hot.  Things were looking grim during the Thousand Oaks Elks Lodge BBQ.  The PERs were being challenged once again.   As the day progressed, the heat was taking it’s toll.  Finally, we were fortunate to see two very prominent, and experienced, BBQ Elks descend upon the scene.

Rick Bennett and Eddie Rice stepped up to the plate (or Grill as the case may be) and supported the PER effort without blinking an eye.  These gentlemen are very familiar with the need for BBQ volunteers.

Although our team was staffed adequately, when the heat kicked in it soon became a struggle.  Eddie and Rick immediately made the obvious observation and jumped in to support the PER team.

Eddie and Rick, your dedication to the mainstay of the Lodge and to fellow Elks is inspiring.  Thanks again for your efforts.

The Past Exalted Ruler’s Association is deeply grateful.

PER’s and Friends Staff the Saturday June 29th BBQ for the Thousand Oaks Elks Lodge #2477

Every two or three months the lodge has a 5th Saturday on their calendar.  This is when the Lodge PER Association staffs a BBQ Team.  The proceeds of this BBQ help fund the Frank Rindone Fund.  This fund helps bolster the Lodge Scholarship funding efforts in memory of Frank Rindone.  All of the PER’s who participate make a special effort to volunteer in his honor.

Frank Rindone was a Charter Member of the Thousand Oaks Elks Lodge and ultimately a long time District Leader of the West Central Coast.  The stories of his leadership within the Conejo Valley, our Lodge and in Elkdom in general are awe inspiring.

This last Saturday, the PER BBQ  was no different than any other, and the people we serve responded as always.  Another successful weekly lodge event took place with outstanding results in support of the youth in our community.  Thank you, to volunteer members of the Past Exalted Rulers Association of the Thousand Oaks Elks Lodge.

We’ll do it again in August!!  We look forward to seeing more PER’s volunteering to share in the pride of supporting the Frank Rindone Fund.

The three handsome Elk Guys in the back row, viz., Jim Mullin, Dwight Williams and Bill Miller, are pictured with their GSA helpers at the annual Thousand Oaks Brownilympic event which was held at California Lutheran University on Saturday, May 19th.

The “boys” cooked nearly 400 hot dogs and the girls wrapped and delivered them to the many Brownie Troops or sold them to walk-up parent customers in attendance.  T.O. Lodge 2477 furnishes hot dogs for both the T.O GSA Service Unit Brownilympics and the Coastal SU’s which includes Newbury Park – this year held on the previous Saturday at the beautiful Rio Mesa HS facility in Oxnard.  A few hundred girls and a like number of parents participated at each site again this year in these always colorful and exciting events.

The “Wrapper” girls were great, keeping up a steady chatter and really pushing the output of the cookers.  When we had finished BBQing the last dog the girls gathered under a nearby large oak tree for their lunch and several yelled out that these were the best hot dogs they ever tasted.  A dad also came up to ask what brand we were cooking and when asked why, he said his 6 year old son wouldn’t eat hot dogs at home but had devoured two of them that morning!  We’ll credit the fresh air and physical activity for the added good taste.
