Well Rally time is over, but the work is not. While we try and wrap things up and get everything outstanding paid and finalized for this year’s Rally, we can only give you and estimate of about $34,000 raised this year. We definitely beat last year, but again have some last minute expenses that have to be turned in, tally it all up and then get it into the bank for FINAL numbers.
Thank you to Jack and Cher Lintz, Chuck Vollrath, Eileen Rasmussen, Stan and Darlene Vastine for your year’s of service on our corp of “Purple Shirts” and for all you have done for the rally. We hope we can see you all next year as attendants, even though you have moved on from your Rally Officer positions. Again, thank you for your year’s of service.
Welcome to our new Rally Chairman, Chip Durham who has a great corp of Officers coming up next year for our 52nd Annual Elks Rally and they have already got some great ideas going.
Last but definitely not least, thank you to all the Purple Shirts that worked so hard again this year and are coming back next year for 2020. This is always a team effort and it’s a great team to be part of. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU.
Special thank you to Pat and Cynthia Riley for all the Rally printing! It always look so great.
Thank you to each and every Lodge that attended and that held events, served food and more. WE LITERALLY COULD NOT DO THIS WITHOUT YOU ALL.
Congratulations to Clovis Lodge for winning the Sunday drawing of the bar credit totaling about $4775 that will be sent in to CHEA for their Citation. This was new this year and we drew a lodge name on Sunday to share the credit, since it’s a group effort at that bar!
If we have forgotten anything, please our apologies in advance. We will be sending off all final information to CHEMPI in the next few weeks so that each Lodge gets their special citation next year.
FROM THE PURPLE SHIRTS – WE LOVE AND THANK YOU ALL FOR MAKING THIS A GREAT FUNDRAISER FOR THE KIDS.
Go ahead and mark your Calendars now for Oct 8,9,10 and 11, 2020 for our 52nd Annual Elks Rally!! See you all next year!
