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.
Lodge Secretary Dave Naccarato put together a Sunday morning breakfast crew staffed by newly initiated members and family. A wonderful way for them to meet the old crowd and for the old crowd to greet them.
Eight new members are now part of the fraternal brotherhood of the BPOE (Best People On Earth) Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks and our Thousand Oaks Elks Lodge #2477
