Elks Helping Communities

Malcolm Freeberg, President, Colorado Elks Association
Malcolm Freeberg, President
Colorado Elks Association
Thank you for the support you as an Association have given me to be elected as your President for the coming year. I encourage all of the Colorado Lodges to continue to grow our Association Membership. And in the last two years under the leadership of PSPs Tom Fraker and Rich Stolte with the assistance of State Membership Chairman George Hanzas, Colorado has had the greatest Membership gains in the last 32 years. I believe the corner has been turned and Membership growth will continue. And the best way is to continue this growth is let members of our Communities know about our Programs and ask them to join.

When I started the planning for my year in Office, I talked with the Ron Beach, Chairman Colorado Veteran Services Committee and asked him to look at starting two new programs. Homeless Veterans, Troy Young PER Northglenn, State Chairman, will be working to get volunteers across the State trained as “VA Housing Coordinators”. Veteran’s Return-to-Work Program, Peter Franks, PER Arvada, State Chairman, will be working with the Lodges across the State to develop Jobs in each of their Communities. This is really as simple as asking businesses.

We have a great year ahead of us, but importantly have fun doing the work of Elkdom.
