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!!

Thousand Oaks Elks Lodge PER Association Hosts another “WCCD ER Going Away Party”

It has been a long-time tradition to give the West Central Coast District Exalted Rulers a proper send off before traveling to Grand Lodge Convention.   In keeping with that tradition the Thousand Oaks Elks Lodge PER Association hosted yet another annual “ER Going Away Party”.
Because the venue for the 2013 Grand Lodge convention is Reno, Nevada, the theme for the party was a Casino Night.  Also, in the tradition of PER events, a horse race was held which involved the visiting ERs.

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.
