On June 7th, 2011 Elkdom lost one of its most cherished members Mac McCluey. Mac exemplified what Elkdom is all about. He was Veteran's Committee Chairman for more years than most can remember and the winner of many awards for this. He was our Lodge Organist and State Organist. Mac traveled around playing for many Assisted Living facilities and was a regular at the State Veteran's Home. Mac was a Honorary Life Member. He was a 60 year member of Boise Lodge #310 initiated in 1951. Mac was inducted into the Idaho Elks Hall of Honor in 1999. Mac was in charge of Flag Day for the Lodge for many years and took great pride in that. His day to be laid to rest is June 14th Flag Day. This is so appropriate for one of the most patriotic men I have ever known. I will remember Mac most playing the organ for members at the lodge meetings and for the youth at so many lodge functions. Mac we salute you and your name will be on all our Tablets of Love and Memory. Mac most of all you will be remembered as a dear friend.

In the 18th Century, our forefathers created a new government in which all men by the Declaration of Independence are created Equal. They had lived under the rule of a monarchy and wanted to be free to choose the laws, their people who governed them, worship with out persecution, and many other rights to live a free life. As a new government, they established a new flag in which we have for over two hundred years used as our symbol for a free country. The new country abolished the symbol of their old country, the British flag as it no longer was their flag or represented their new country. When new citizens come to our country seeking a new life and pledging The United States as their new country, they no longer can pay allegiance to their old country or the old countries flag, as they are no longer, by their own choice, a member of that country. They and other members of this country have one symbol in which to pledge and that is the American Flag. There is House Joint Resolution 13 before Congress that prohibits physical desecration of the Fag of the United States. We must show pride in our flag and make sure that it is protected. There are proper ways to retire a flag with respect!

On June 14th, Flag Day, there is a special program that is beautiful and respectful showing the history of our flag and the military flags. It is at 7:00 pm at the Veterans Hospital. I urge you all to see this event. In the State of Idaho, other Elks Lodges are conducting similar programs. Please seek out a Lodge in your area, to enjoy this event.

God Bless You!
God Bless America!

Incoming 2011-2012 Exalted Ruler and Lodge Secretary

I am in charge of putting together the ISEA Officers Directory and the Lodge Committee Chairperson’s directory for the upcoming year. I really need your help in completing this for the summer convention. There are two forms to fill in, one is for next years Officers and the other is for next years Committee chairpersons for your lodge. Could you please fill in the forms and return them to me by March 30th. I would also like you to check the information concerning the Lodge charter date and meeting times.

I will also be sending an email to each lodge with this information and electronic copies of the forms if you would prefer to complete them electronically. If you would prefer to send the information to me electronically, please email me at caldmorgan[at]hotmail[dot]com. The officer’s form is pretty straight forward. On the committee chairman form please fill free to add any committees that you feel are important to your lodge and may be useful to other lodges that may want to start similar programs.

Please include any email addresses for your officers or chairpersons that are available, since most people prefer the speed and ease of the internet. I would especially like the email address for your Lodge, secretary and/or incoming ER so that I can get the information back to you in a timely manner for proof-reading.

Electronic copies of the forms will also be available on the State web page. You can fill out your forms and submit them online and they will be sent to me automatically. Submit Your Forms Here

I will be unavailable from Feb 11th until March 5th for any questions, but I will be happy to answer any questions as soon as I get home on March 5th. You can call me 208-785-6011 or 208-604-1915 if you have any questions.

After I get all of your information entered into the directory I will send you a copy to proof read before final printing.

Even if you don’t have the complete list yet, please send me what you have so that I can get started on putting it together. There will be time available to make any corrections before the final version is printed if I can get the information soon.

Also I would ask each incoming ER or secretary to check the list of Past DD’s listed in the bulletin from last year to see if any changes need to be made for this year.

Please help me to get this completed by sending your information as soon a possible. I need to get it to the printer by May 1st.

I have included the pages from last years directories to help you in gathering your information, since a lot of the same names will be in the new directories.

Fraternally
