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

The attack on Pearl Harbor was a surprise military strike conducted by the Imperial Japanese Navy against the United States naval base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii on the morning of December 7, 1941. The next day the United States declared war on Japan resulting in their entry into World War II. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Attack_on_Pearl_Harbor

The Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks has always been at the forefront of supporting the nation's veterans. The order has a direct connection with Veterans' Day that is not commonly known.

Veterans' Day, Nov. 11, was originally known before World War II (and is still known in Europe) as Armistice Day. It commemorates the end of World War I, the "War to End All Wars."

When hostilities ceased in November of 1918, President Wilson gave the American Expeditionary Force Commander, General John "Black Jack" Pershing, full authority to set the date and time of the Armistice. Pershing was an active and enthusiastic Elk, and selected the 11th hour of the 11th day of November, the 11th month, as the effective time of the Armistice. This was Pershing's salute to the memory of those soldiers "Elks and non-Elks alike" who perished during the long and brutal conflict.

The hour of 11 p.m. continues to have a special significance to the Elks, as it is the time when, at any evening Elks event, all activity ceases and all members and guests rise while the chimes ring 11 times and the "Eleven O’Clock Toast" is given in recollection of deceased members.

In 1917, the BPOE organized and equipped the first two base hospitals in France, which were the predecessors of MASH units. In 1918, the order built a 700-bed hospital and donated it to the Federal Government, the first of what would become Veterans' Administration hospitals. The Elks built a spectacular memorial to America’s veterans in Chicago in 1926, and more recently donated $1.22 million to the National World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C.

The Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks dedicates the month of November as National Veterans Remembrance Month and pledges: “So long as there are Veterans, the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks will never forget them”.

In over 250 VA Medical Centers, Outpatient Clinics, State Veteran’s Homes and USOs, there is an Elks committee at work. Thousands of Elks and their spouses give generously of their time, energy and resources so that the lives of our ill and aging veterans will be enhanced. Thousands of hours and like number of dollars are devoted to wholesome programs which are designed to help those in need, as we continue “Serving Our Nations Veterans”.

The Elks have set up ways that the local Lodge members can help our veterans in hospitals, care facilities or those living at home, such as:

Adopt-a-Veteran: This is a simple and effective program in which every Lodge can participate. It is an activity that spells out the measure of Elkdom’s patriotism and provides comfort, good cheer and understanding to the nation’s veterans who have fallen ill or institutionalized.
Veterans comfort care kits: Here is something else that our members across this great country do for our veterans. We provide amenities and necessities for veterans in hospitals, care homes, those we have adopted and the all too many homeless veterans.

In 2003 the Elks announced a program of mobilizing an Army of Hope to assist the families of Military Reservists and the National Guard who have been called to active duty during this time of crisis. This program has many facets and literally any activity that supports our troops and their families fall under this vital program.

Playing Cards for Veterans is another program that goes hand in hand with our Adopt-A-Veteran program. This activity gives a hospitalized veteran something else to do rather than just passively sitting and watching television. They can be distributed as part of any activity for our veterans. These are just a few of the many programs that Elks have available to assist our Veterans and Families.
If you would like to participate in these programs, contact your local Elks Lodge for information.
