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.

Pack 3776 Blue & Gold Dinner

The following is from our Scouting Chairman Bill Miller.  Well done Bill and well done parents and leaders….

On Sunday, February 24th, one of our sponsored Cub Packs – 3776 – held their Blue and Gold dinner at the Lodge.  The Pack has grown to its largest size since the beginning of our association with them about 8 years ago.  The Lodge Room was full to overflowing (I counted over 120 people) as awards were given out to the cubs and a slide show broadcast a reminder of all the activities that were shared during the past year.  Blue and Gold events typically include the “bridging” of Webelos II Cubs into Scouting and this year the Pack sent 11 boys into Troop 765 and two more into Troop 745.  Although this depleted their ranks considerably, they still have 4 Tigers, 8 Wolves, 17 Bears and 3 Webelos I boys remaining and a bunch of eager moms and dads in their supporting cast.  Along with the “graduation” of the large number of Webelos several key adult leaders accompanied their sons into the Scouting troops, including the Scoutmaster, Fred Hall, the Committee Chair, Treasurer, and Advancement Chair.  However, replacements have volunteered to fill these slots and the Pack remains active, healthy and the kids seem to be having a good time.
