Vice President message for January 2019

     As we start the New Year, I would like to remind all Exalted Rulers and lodge committee chairs the importance of having your lodge represented at both the district and state meetings.  There is always new information from Grand Lodge and the NJSEA presented at these meetings. 

    On Saturday, January 12, 2019 the State Soccer Shoot Contest will be held in Manasquan.  Volunteers are always needed at these events so, come

out and support our district contestants.  Contact District Soccer Shoot Chair

Maureen Chapman for all the information.

     Every month our District Veterans Committee hosts Bingo at the Menlo Park Veterans Memorial Home, in Edison.  District Veterans Committee Chair

PER Jeff Van Woeart can always use some assistance.  It is also, a great way to interact with our Veterans, while assisting them with the games.

     The NJ Elks Veterans Services Committee is holding it’s 2nd Annual Cornhole Tournament on Saturday, January 12, 2019 at the Monmouth

Park Racetrack.  This is a fundraiser to help homeless Veterans in our state.

The tournament starts at 12 Noon and for more information regarding this

tournament please email:  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Calendar by emailing District Internet Chair PER Scott Dunham at  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  Also, check the calendar for upcoming events

Message from the District Deputy GER – January 2019

I’m hoping that everyone had a wonderful Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza or whatever holiday you and your family observed.  Along with that I want to wish everyone a Happy and Healthy New Year.

Membership is first and foremost at the top of this list of things that need to be worked on this year.  There will be a Statewide Membership/Retention meeting in 3 different locations: 

January 7, 2019 7:30pm in Union Lodge #1583, 281 Chestnut Street, Union, NJ

January 8, 2019 7:30pm in Toms River Lodge #1875, 600 Washington Street, Toms River, NJ

January 9, 2019 7:30pm in Deptford Lodge #2708, 733 Highland Street, Deptford, NJ

I encourage all Exalted Rulers, Leading Knights and Lodge Secretaries to attend one of the meetings listed above.  Currently we have 35 candidates awaiting initiation in our District.  I know you are all working very hard to bring them in and now that the holidays are behind us and we get back to some sort of normalcy, let’s do everything we can to accomplish this.  Our delinquent member numbers has decreased, however at 238 we can still improve and reduce it.

Hoop Shoot is one of our Grand Lodge programs and the Central District will be holding their District Shoot on Sunday January 6th at the South Plainfield PAL, 1250 Maple Ave, South Plainfield, NJ from 8am to noon.  Please make every effort to come out, show your support and help out the District.

Remember to post all lodge events and fundraiser and keep me apprised when your lodge will be initiating new members, I would be honored to witness and welcome the new members.

God Bless our Troops, God Bless the Elks and God Bless America


Betty Bellanca
