Message from the District Deputy GER – July 2019

As I begin my journey as DDGER, I must pause and thank our District advisers, PDD’S, ER’S and members for first having the confidence in me to take on the responsibilities of a District Deputy and for all the well wishes I received from everyone in our district, I will try my best as your DDGER.  I’m writing this before the Grand Lodge convention is St. Louis, but I can tell you now we are going to have a great time.  The information the ER’S are going to bring back to the members of the central district is going to be overwhelming. Plus, for the first time in over 60 years a lodge from the central district will represent the great state of New Jersey in the Grand Lodge Ritual Contest.  Piscataway’s Officers have studied their parts and practiced as a team for many months now and are ready for this contest, I wish them all GOOD LUCK. 

Our incoming GER Robert L. Duitsman’s theme for 2019 – 2020 is “Honoring the Past – Embracing the Future” he has outlined his theme in the 2019-2020 Grand Lodge Program which is available to all members.  In this program he has addressed all Elks programs, addressed all lodge officers as well as included a message to all members.  I will make sure that the lodge’s ER’S bring back a copy for each lodge, and I recommend that each member seek out this Grand Lodge Program and read it, it’s that good.

I’m looking forward to working with each lodge, their officers and members to promote the great programs of the Grand Lodge and the New Jersey Elks Association.

May God protect our Troops and bring them back home safe and healthy to their families.  May God bless the USA and watch over all Elks as they do the great work of our order.


James A. Kopcho, District Deputy
