Message from the District Deputy GER – March 2021

The Central District of New Jersey is the most amazing District in our Great State (in my opinion), with a combined per capita of $16,848.54 (and rising) and a total of $84,500.00 in CIP Grants !! simply amazing! Fantastic Job Central District!! 

Calling all PER’s an important responsibility for the opportunity to cast your vote on March 7th at Carteret Lodge from 2:00 – 4:00 PM for our 2021-2022 State President and State Secretary and Congratulate our new Vice President Christine Sauer PER and State Trustee James A. Kopcho PDD. 

During these trying times we can lose focus on important matters that affect our Lodges like New Members! They are the lifeblood of our Order and key to the continued success of the Elks. The Central District currently has 15 candidates awaiting initiation into our order and some 277 delinquent members, please reach out to our delinquent members and plan your initiations as soon as possible. Grand Lodge has granted permission to use an amended shortened version of the Initiatory Ritual to administer the Obligation and complete the paperwork with the understanding that once restrictions ease these members can come back to experience the complete Initiatory Ritual. Details are on the Elks.Org GL site under “Members News” Coronavirus guidelines for the B.P.O.E. 

To outgoing Officers it has been a difficult year I would like to Thank each and every one of you, we struggled but we continued to do Great Things in our Lodges and our District, and to incoming Officers Thank you for accepting your position and let’s 

keep this District operating at the highest level and continue with the Great Work that we do – Keep up the Great Work and Thank you all for making the Central District the Great District that it is (my personal favorite). 

Stay Healthy – Happy – and Care for others 


Danny Larsen DDGER
