Colorado Elks, along with Elk members across the Nation just returned from their National Convention.  What a great time!  Our State was proud to salute GER John Amen and First Lady Marcia for representing our Order is such a great fashion this past year.  Thank you John and Marcia!  Thank you for your dedication.  We welcome our new Grand Exalted Ruler Ron Hicks and First Lady Nancy and look forward to the first weekend in September when they visit our great state.

What an honor it was to carry the Colorado Flag during the opening ceremony.  I kept saying to myself…don’t trip, smile for 45 seconds and don’t wind the flag around the pole!  What a great feeling and honor and I thank everyone for making it possible. 

For the past six months, I have been tracking our membership and our goal to reach a Plus One.  We fell short.  I am now changing the chart below to represent the delinquency rate.  At the Colorado luncheon, I announced that our goal was a ZERO delinquency rate by September 1st.  I want EVERYONE OF YOU to be able to tell our new Grand Exalted Ruler that Colorado has made that goal.  The new Colorado Elks worked extremely hard this past year in an effort to reach a PLUS 1 in membership.  Unfortunately, we feel slightly short.  I want to thank everyone one of you that put in that extra effort!  Thank you!  Now let us redouble our efforts and start working on those delinquent members.  As of July 15th, Colorado has initiated or reinstated 243 members raising our membership total to 22,213.  Unfortunately, we currently have 2,966 delinquent members.  I am asking all Exalted Rulers and Secretaries to make sure monthly dues statements are being sent out AND your retention committee is actively contacting the delinquent members. 

Stay safe, love your families and neighbors and be an Elk!

Thomas W. Fraker, President
