Vice President message for November 2020

 As we continue to navigate through this pandemic it shows there's nothing stopping the Central District from being the best there is in Elkdom.

 It was an honor to see Metuchen #1914, and Woodbridge #2116,  perform the ritual to bring in new members. Both lodges made it a point to impress the attendees with our DDGER, Dan Larsen, and State Membership Chairman,

Mike Penchenski in attendance.

 We all want to be together, but must continue to play it safe. The Zoom meetings are very informative and look like it will be the way for the upcoming months . State Soccer, State Training and the SCC meet and greet for our area Ambassador and Alternate were very successful, and I encourage any District Chair to have a zoom meeting just to stay in touch with your committee.

 Job well done by Sandy Helly, (Region 1Co Chair AOH) for organizing the Fundraiser at the Woodbridge Lodge. It was very enjoyable for all that attended. Thank you, Carteret Lodge # 2235 for hosting a Toys For Tots picnic with over 200 in attendance. 

 Congratulations, to all our District Soccer Shoot Winners.  I look forward to seeing you compete in the State finals on November 21st . Great job organizing this event by the Piscataway, ER  Maureen Chapman,  and District Chair Jack Harkins.

 Stay tuned for TAM training. The trainers are about to take their final exam and could be ready to conduct a session in November. Jack Fistori,PDD, Region 1 TAM coordinator will be in touch.

Please stay safe and wear your mask,

Jeff Van Woeart

Message from the District Deputy GER – November 2020

As we enter the Holiday season our existence has been interrupted by the Covid Pandemic, Executive Orders, Rules, Regulations and Directives have left a mark on our lives that won’t soon be forgotten.

Never the less all of the precautions – mandated by these Rules and Regulations must be adhered to and followed to minimize the spread and possible exposure of our more vulnerable citizens.

Meanwhile our Lodges continue to operate under these conditions, trying different approaches to generate income for our Lodges and conduct the business of our order the business of Elkdom. Soccer Shoot, Tee it up, initiations and fund raisers all under strict regulations being carried out by volunteers of our Lodges.

I have attended 3 or 4 Initiations in the last month or so and it is amazing how I have missed the Majesty of the Initiatory Ritual Ceremony it has been too long since attending such a Ceremony. 

The 11 o’clock toast contest and flag charge contest at the ER Round table was impressive to witness! Congratulations Maureen Chapman representing the Central District in the State Competition - Best of Luck -.

Halloween – Veterans Day – Thanksgiving Day – Elks Memorial Service – Hanukkah – Christmas Day – New Years Eve and New Years Day

New Years Day I think we are all ready for New Years Day, a new beginning a new chance for normalcy, we can only hope and pray.

Bless America, our Veterans and First Responders

Stay Safe and Stay Strong
