         Past Grand Exalted Ruler

I know that these last few months have been a very hard and challenging time for our Lodges, Members and our communities.  The New Jersey State Elks Association has been working to get you up to date information on the status of reopening our Lodges and have found it very challenging to get definitive answers from the State.  As you are aware from past emails, we were informed that we could reopen the outdoor areas of our lodges with permission from our town and then we were contacted by the Attorney General stating we were not entitled to reopen on June 15th in conjunction with Executive Order 150, regardless of the type of license the club holds.  It was a very frustrating time for all of us.

However, after much discussion with the Attorney General, Governor Murphy has released his latest Executive Order #153 stating that "Public and Private Social Clubs are permitted to reopen their outdoor spaces, provided they comply with all applicable terms of this Order." Attached you will find a copy of this Executive Order (Par. 7) for your reference.  Again at this time, I ask that you contact your individual town governing body to confirm that your liquor license can be used outdoors on your property.

Thank you for again for your patience during this unprecedented times.  I look forward to seeing you all again soon.

Email from Paul Urbish, Esq., Deputy Attorney General  -  Club Licensees are permitted to reopen outdoor spaces by Executive Order of the Governor. EO 153 states: “7. Public and private social clubs are permitted to reopen their outdoor spaces, provided that they comply with all applicable terms of this Order [EO 153].”

 What Everyone Has Been Waiting For!

Starting Friday June 5th, 2020, the NJSEA Convention Committee has opened an online New Jersey Elks store offering shirts, hats, masks and more. Just when you were disappointed you could not buy New Jersey Elks items in Wildwood this year, you are in luck. Go to our new website and look at what is available. Pick out something, order it from the website and have it delivered to your home in no time at all. Check back frequently to see what we may be offering so you can always have the newest NJ Elks items available, even if it is not convention time. Try it out, see what you think. If you have any suggestions, please let your Convention Committee District Representative know. Happy shopping!! Click Here

This is to inform you that because of the Coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic, the Advisory Executive Committee has voted to cancel the 2020 National Convention in Baltimore.

On-going discussions will continue to be held on possible scenarios to accomplish the required tasks which normally are done during our convention. Once any details are made available, distribution will take place.

These are very unfortunate times we are in. This action was a very difficult but correct decision to make.

Take care and be safe.
