The weather is changing in the GREAT State of Colorado. Fall is in the air and with that comes the "changing of the colors" as our mountain Aspens turn gold! It also signals a change for the Colorado Elks Association.  My election to the position of State President has brought a new sense of responsibility and a renewed desire to further Elkdom in our State.  Thanks to the members that have placed their confidence in me. I will not let you down.

The biggest goal that I have established, along with George Hanzas my new Membership chairman, is a gain of 540 members!  Simply put – the ending figure of last year needs to be increased by 540 which represents 54 lodges having a gain of 10 new members or reinstatements.  As a TEAM and with HARD work WE CAN DO IT. Let your community know that you are PROUD TO BE AN ELK! Grand Exalted Ruler John Amen's motto is "Elks: Elevating America"!  If our community sees our ACTIVE participation, then they will want to join. Start carrying a membership application today!

If you are not a member of the Elks and wonder what it is all about, pause and take a look at our website and see what Elks are doing across Colorado.  If your interest is piqued, go to http://www.elks.org/ and look at what Elks are doing nationwide!  Elks are actively involved with our Youth and our Veterans.  Their presence is felt in many towns across America.  Are you interested in joining?  The National office has simplified the membership procedure and you will find a quick link on their webpage if you would like to have someone contact you from a local lodge.
