Vice President message for April 2019

     As we start the season of Spring, the district has many events to get you out of the house and into the nice weather.  Starting off with the Central District Army of Hope Fundraiser.  This fundraiser will be held at the Fox & Hound Restaurant located at the Menlo Park Mall in Edison, on April 9, 2019.  Central District AOH Chair PER Sandy Helly and her committee has been working hard on this fundraiser.  Please come out and support our Veterans as last year’s fundraiser was a great success and a lot of fun.  Please contact your Lodge AOH Chair for tickets.

     Next up, is the Central District “Walk Out On Drugs” on Sunday, April 28, 2019 at the Lake Pappianni Park in Edison, at 12 PM.  This NJSEA is dedicated to our youth and drug awareness is the key to successful futures.  Central District PVP Dennis Kopik and his committee are once again organizing this event for our district.  Every year the Central District has a great attendance so, please bring your family and friends in support of this event.

Message from the District Deputy GER – April 2019

Another fraternal year, as they say, is in the books.  The Exalted Rulers have done a wonderful job leading their respective Lodges. You all lead by example and I’m sure your successors will have a smooth transition.  Your dedication to your Lodges and the Central District is what makes this District one of the premier Districts in the state. I want to take this time to offer congratulations and best wishes to the new Officers of each Lodge for the fraternal year 2019-2020.

I am proud of our District.  Collectively the Lodges received 42 ENF Grants totaling $83,500 and two of our Lodges were fortunate to receive the “Focus Grant” through the Veterans totaling $9000.  Great job all!  I have seen all the good works the Lodges have done with their Grant money working all the Grand Lodge Programs.  Congratulations to all and on behalf of our Grand Exalted Ruler, Michael T Luhr, thank you for doing what Elks do best.

Membership has been a hot topic once again this year.  In our District we made some strides but as of 03-24-19 there were still 18 people awaiting initiation into our order.  Our District Wide Initiation held at the Carteret Lodge and performed by the State Ritual winning team from Piscataway Lodge #2414 was well received.  Seven (7) new members were brought in that night.  A friendly reminder,  we will be holding a fundraiser for the winning Ritual Team at the Carteret Elks on Friday May 3, 2019.  For tickets please see Rita Massimi at This email address is being protected from spambots.
