Love The Pig Valentine’s Day Fund Raiser for CHEA Major Project

A Coin a Day so they can Wall. Talk, See and Play

 

Love the Pig

What does Valentine’s Day and the Purple Pig have in common? An opportunity to show your support for others.

 

Now through Valentine’s Day the lodge is raising funds for the Purple Pig with hearts on display (check out the windows and behind the bar) and it’s yours to write your own special message for a simple $2 donation.

 

You’ll find the basket of hearts at the bar and you’ll also have an opportunity during the meetings and other special events to get one and help out the lodge. The children served by our Major Project (Purple Pig) thank you in advance for your support!

 

 

Fraternally,

Members of Thousand Oaks Elks Lodge #2477 enjoy Sunday at the Races

On Sunday October 6th a group of 30 members and their friends took a bus trip to Santa Anita Park and enjoyed a day at the races.  There was a race that gave recognition to the Thousand Oaks Elks Lodge.  It was the 4th race and our lodge name was printed on that page of the program.  A drawing was held, as a Purple Pig fund raiser, for two from our group to be selected to represent us in the Winner’s Circle.  The winners were Jim Moye and Sherri Jones.
Here is a short video highlighting some of Sunday at the Races Experience.

Here is what your Piggy Bank contributions do.

This is a short video explaining what contributions to the California-Hawaii Elks Association Major Project aka Purple Pig or Piggy Bank actually accomplish.  Pay particular attention to the lady who mentions the service is without government assistance and her praise of community based support from local Elks Lodges….Enjoy and be Proud.

44th Annual Purple Pig Entertainment Rally

To all RVers in the WCCD.

Thanks to Richard Goldner for this information

====================================

Hi, 2011/2012 District PR Chairs and Others,

I know you thought you were through hearing from me, but I promised our Purple Pig Elks Rally committee that I would do my best to promote the big Rally taking pace this Oct in Hemet CA. It is the biggest single fund raising event for the Major Project in the State. We are hoping to get Lodge RV clubs and individual RV’ers from all over CA to attend this year. Please pass on the attached information flyers to Lodges and bulletin Editors within your District.

We have all ready heard from a number of Elks living in Central and Northern CA who are planning to make a vacation out of a trip to So CA and the Hemet Rally. I ask you to use your influence to promote this worthwhile project and encourage your members to join the hundreds of Elks who will be at this year’s fun event.

I hope you are having a good year and I know you are continuing to do your best for Elkdom.

Please see the contact information on the flyer listed in the link shown below.

Thanks,

Andy Costello

44th Annual Rally Entertainmenta
