Announcing May’s Elk (s) of the month.

Announcing May’s Elk (s) of the month. We get two for the price of one! Congratulations Karl and Vicky Jacobson!!!

Sometimes we witness a couple whose talents complement each other so completely that the fruits of their work are flawless. Where one’s physical talents leave off the others artistic vision takes over and then vice versa in an inseparable harmony.

Such is the team represented in this month’s Elks of the month. If you have had the pleasure of meeting Karl and Vicky or see them at work, you know what we are talking about. Their dedication to each other, spills over to their dedication to our lodge and we are blessed to be the beneficiaries of their talents. Their warm personalities and Karl’s constant humor make them a pleasure to spend time with and if you have not met them, you are missing out.

Normally Elk of the month is reserved to recognize one person, but in that these two come as a team we get two for one. As unassuming as these two present themselves they actually are world class rock stars in their respective fields.

In the past few months, they, as a team, have:

  • Replaced the broken window and flashing in the downstairs South Room – saving the Lodge $1,000s of dollars
  • Installed pavers at the side gate
  • Repaired the ramp in North Room downstairs
  • Repaired and refinished 6 doors
  • Installed door latch protectors on the front doors
  • Repaired the sitting bench at the front door
  • And helped with security video install


Their list is still growing as they generously have found that the 827 Lodge is a good place to put their efforts as they ease into retirement. Thank you Karl and Vicky – we are so fortunate that you have adopted us in your efforts.
