Heritage Fest was fun! Thanks to Rusty Vinal and all the Elks volunteers. If you missed out then there is always next year. 

The gun Raffle is coming up and now you can buy tickets right on the website. Just go to tiffinelks.com to purchase as many as you like. Remember this event is open to the public so if you know anyone who would be interested please let them know how to get tickets. 

You can get your kids money for college. The Elks offer scholarships.

Forever in Elkdom,

Can you believe is already October?  We had a great time on Heritage Festival weekend and it was good to see many of you down at the lodge.  I'm looking forward to seeing you all again at the Gun Raffle in November!  

Unfortunately, we had to say goodbye to two long-time members, Glenn Ritzenthaler and Jack Wangler, who both passed away early in September.  Jack was a member for 33 years, and Glenn (or Ritzy) was a member for 69 years and was a past ER. Our lodge was lucky to have such dedicated members and both will be sorely missed.  

We initiated three new members this past month- Richard Chwalik, Chris Kiefer, and Martin Coffmen, Jr (Junior).  Let's give them a warm welcome to the lodge!  

Respectfully Yours,
    Laura Johnson, Secretary
