A pictorial review of the Elks Memorial Service:
From the presentation during the Elks Memorial Service December 6, 2009 by Terry Gicking, Exalted Ruler Elks Lodge 2477
My theme this year is “Memories from the past, to rebuild our future”! I know that living in the past keeps you from moving forward, but I thought that reliving the “memories of my past in this wonderful Lodge” could help us as a lodge, mend some broken friendships. Sometimes it takes the death of a loved one for us to stop and realize that our time upon the stage of life is but brief.
Along with honoring the memories of those brothers we lost during the past year, and with the help of a dear old friend and Brother Elk, we put together a short synopsis of some of the members of our lodge who have helped shape OUR lodge into what was once known as the Friendliest Lodge in Elkdom.
