What a fantastic year!
Have you seen page 6 of the April Elks magazine. Nice picture of Stephanie and I with Bruce and Helen Hidley and Wayne and Kathline Cotterly. I am so proud of the Maine lodges all of which exceeded the GER’s ENF goal. The ENF goal I set at $120,000 was to be a new record. You folks smashed that by raising $141,894.47 We got back $1.467 for each dollar given. That’s $208,120. for our programs. I asked that each lodge take advantage of all the CIP Grants that they could get to help in their communities. Maine got over $166,500 for our communities, with all lodges participating. Thank you! Congratulations to Wells Lodge 2738 for being number one in the Nation in ENF raising $27017.00 $482.45 per member.
We were able to visit all 20 lodges. The experiences were wonderful. I thank the lodges for the thoughtfulness and effort shown us. We could tell that you spent time making sure our visit was memorable, and they certainly were. We wish Sandy and Dave all the best in their upcoming year.
