Vice President message for July 2020

As we continue working under stressful conditions, it is comforting to see how the Lodges and their committees are finding ways to reach people in need, and our Veterans. Camp Moore, is holding their

first Camp by Zoom. Make sure to see Harry Newton, for the packages the kids need to participate for the camp online activities. This years Flag Day landed on the 245th anniversary of the US Army, and I had the privilege to attend the ceremonies in Carteret #2235, and Woodbridge #2116 Lodges. Woodbridge Lodge #2116, also finished their ceremony by presenting a check For $2,000 to Mayor John McCormac for the "We Feed Woodbridge" charity.  This being a perfect time to show the community what the Elks can do.

  Although, the Youth Sport Tournament had a great program set up again, unfortunately it has been canceled.

As restrictions start to lighten up, try to support any events as they occur, such as the Army of Hope, Golf Outing on August 7th. They are in need of Tee Sponsors and Golfers. If interested contact District Chair, Sandy Helly, at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

   As we move forward, due to the space requirements, some lodges will be able to hold meetings before others. Please let me know when you begin to have meetings, I am eager to attend. 

God Bless you all,

Central District VP

Message from the District Deputy GER – July 2020

Hello and Happy Fourth of July,

Let me introduce myself, I am DDD Danny Larsen from Watchung Hills Lodge # 885 and will be DDGER for the 2020-2021 year. To say that this year is unusual would be an understatement, I do not believe the Grand Lodge Convention has ever been cancelled! I feel so bad for all of the New Exalted Rulers, the Grand Lodge Convention is an experience not to be missed and while we all understand it was the best, the only choice possible under these circumstances, a piece of Elkdom will be missing from not attending a Grand Lodge Convention!

As we learn to adapt to our new normal, social distancing, zoom meetings and self-quarantine have become our new catch phrases, but our most important purpose is to discover ways to honor our Obligation and practice the principles of Charity, Justice, Brotherly Love and Fidelity under these current conditions. Elks have always exemplified Leadership and Resourcefulness, we will uncover new ways to accomplish our goals and flourish in these trying times. Working together we will make a Difference and continue to provide the services and assistance that make the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks one of the premier Organizations in the World, with some of the Best People on Earth.

Looking forward to opportunities to meet with fellow members it has been difficult isolating from everyone, brighter days are ahead and we have much to accomplish this year so let’s all work together to overcome our challenges accomplish our Goals and show our communities that we are strong and here to help. Please do not forget the ENF Grants that are available, so many uses for the Grant Money to assist those in need and the money is available simply by applying for the Grants so don’t let them slip away. Stay Safe – Lead by Example – and Remember the Heart of Elkdom beats in each one of us 

Danny Larsen DDGER
