2016 - 2017 Lodge Year Comes to a Close

Malcolm Freeberg, President, Colorado Elks Association

Colorado Elks Association

Congratulations to all outgoing Lodge Officers for the 2016-2017 Lodge Year. From the reports I have received there were many great “Community Helping” Projects done. Many Lodges participated in the Youth Dictionary Project. Several assisted with Veterans’ Stand Downs for Homeless Veterans. Also many Veterans received services provided by our many Veterans Administration Service Representatives and their helpers.

Several Graduating High School Seniors were awarded or are being awarded several Hundreds of Thousands of Dollars in Scholarships for collage or trade school tuition. These funds come from both the Elks Nation Foundation as well as local sources from the Lodges.

Over all Colorado Elks Lodges have made a large impact on the wellbeing of their Communities and demonstrated this year’s CEA motto, “Elks Helping Communities”.

Also I would like you to check the upcoming events and help with 2nd VP Kathy Larsen – “Loot for Laradon” and First Lady Janet Van Eps’s – “2017 Laradon ‘Wish List’ Project”. Each is for the benefit of one of our Major Projects – Laradon Hall.

And to our new 2017-2018 Lodge Officers, I challenge you to build on what your predecessors have already put in place and be a shining example in your communities. And remember that the Colorado Elks Association has many resources to help you.


Colorado Ritual Clinics

Hello All,

The first Ritual Clinic has come & gone.
The 2nd Ritual Clinic is set for Saturday May 6th, 2017 at the Westminster Elks Lodge #2227.

The Clinic will start at 8:30 am. The Lodge will have their normal Friday night dinner,
and light breakfast & lunch will be available on Saturday.

We will go over changes to the Initiatory Ritual, with a question & answer session in the morning,
with the Judges certification in the afternoon. (Floor, Word & Computer)

For those travelling and needing lodging, here is the hotel info,

La Quinta Inns & Suites
8701 Turnpike Dr
Westminster, CO 80030

The rate is $107.10

You must mention Elk - Westminster when making your reservation. The deadline for reservations is April 5th.
If we do not book at least 15 rooms, the rate becomes $137.10 per night. I have been told the hotel is newly renovated, so it should be a great stay.

If anyone has any questions feel free to contact me via phone or e-mail.

Thank you for your support of Ritual.

Eric Collard
