Thousand Oaks Elks Lodge member receives Princess Cruises get-away

Recently, the Past Exalted Rulers Association donated two Princess Cruises get-away packages to the lodge. These packages were to be raffled off in order to raise funds for new lounge furniture.  Each package was for two people.  The drawing was held in early February during a Shrimp Feed dinner put on by PER Tom Ryder and crew.
One of the winners was Pati Harrod, a member of our lodge who serves as our Treasurer and Purple Pig Chairperson.  During our regular meeting on Wednesday, February 25th, PER Leo Rodriguez presented the cruise package to Pati.   Enjoy the cruise Pati!!
