Elk of the Month

We’re doing the covid catch up on recognizing our members that have done so much over this past year and deserve our thanks

Erik, we’re coming up on almost a year since you became a Past Exalted Ruler and it’s almost like you immediately fell back into your active volunteering membership role you enjoyed during those years before becoming and officer.

Erik Howes, our Baby Past Exalted Ruler, finished his year as Exalted Ruler with our lodge closing due to the pandemic but he didn’t let that slow him down.  He immediately switched his focus to being an exemplary volunteer and you saw him out helping with landscaping during the summer, helping with the Legacy Brick program, and often when you didn’t see him it was because he was slaving away in the back of the house helping produce many of those delicious drive through meals we’ve had at the lodge

Erik – Thank you!  Your efforts, this year are amazing, you’ve motivated your friends and family to come help and are encouraging those around you to have fun and volunteer to help out around the lodge. Well done and thank you from the Past Exalted Ruler Association and your fellow lodge members.

Cliffie, thank you from all of us at the lodge for your efforts throughout this pandemic.  You’ve put in an amazing amount of time helping get the downstairs bar open and running, you’ve donated money and materials to make it better for our membership and even have jumped in the kitchen to help out as needed. That St. Patty’s day dinner was amazing, by the way…

Our member Cliff Shipp has jumped in, often at the last minute, to help make sure our lodge succeeds and is open for our membership to safely and comfortably enjoy.

Cliffie – Thank you!  Your efforts, this year are amazing and are encouraging those around you to have fun and volunteer to help out around the lodge. Well done and thank you from the Past Exalted Ruler Association and your fellow lodge members.

We’re doing the covid catch up on recognizing our members that have done so much over this past year and deserve our thanks

What amazing things can be said about the efforts of our members Johnny and Mae?  This powerful and positive pair pull stuff off at our lodge each and every year that makes all of us proud to be members of the Ballard Elks Lodge.  2020-2021 was no different!

Johnny Muzevic (P.E.R.) & Mae Moldenhauer ran a stellar Christmas Basket program despite of, and honestly in dire need because of, our covid pandemic.  As well, they are spending countless hours helping out at our volunteer run Secret Beach Bar, often showing up at closing time to simply put things away and help clean up and lock up the building

Johnny & Mae – Thank you!  Your efforts, this year and each and every year are encouraging those around you to have fun and volunteer to help out around the lodge.  Your years of service are warmly noted and we look forward to many more to come.  Well done and thank you from the Past Exalted Ruler Association and your fellow lodge members.

We’re doing the covid catch up on recognizing our members that have done so much over this past year and deserve our thanks

The enthusiastic volunteer work by our new member Mary LaCoste shows her enthusiasm in becoming a member and the opportunities available to all of us if we step up and say “What Can I Do?”  Mary joined our lodge virtually this past November and since joining continues to ask what she can do for the lodge to help out.

We would be remiss in our duties as Past Exalted Rulers to ignore the contributions of time and energy that Mary has brought to our beloved lodge so quickly after becoming a member.

Mary LaCoste – Thank you!  Your efforts you are helping build the energy Ballard needs to come out of this pandemic shining and is encouraging those around you to have fun and volunteer to help out around the lodge no matter how long they have been a member.  Well done and thank you from the Past Exalted Ruler Association and your fellow lodge members.
