Exalted Ruler, Nick Kokalis


First, it’s imperative that the Lodge find new avenues to generate revenue for repairs, maintenance, and much-needed upgrades. I would like to see the Lodge transformed into a beautiful place, worthy of the property and location on which it sits.
My second objective is to increase our pool of volunteers so that we may be able to take on some of
these much-needed projects. To accomplish these goals, I ask you, the members of this Lodge, for assistance.
Our Lodge meeting is on the first and third Thursday of every month. I encourage all members to attend these meetings. It’s a perfect time to sign up as a volunteer or discuss any thoughts or ideas you have before or after the meeting with one of our Lodge officers.

Also, the Lodge lost it’s great Youth Activities Committee Chair when our fellow Elk
member, Itamar Bikszer, moved up to Oregon. As a result, the Lodge is looking for a
Member to step into this very important role for our Member’s, their families and our youth

Interested in being an officer?  Please contact me directly! 


See you soon, Nick Kokalis
