This month the Past Exalted Ruler Association and our Ballard Elks Lodge would like to recognize the selfless and hugely needed work by our amazing members Rachel Rodriguez and Rick Weisz. You’ve all seen the peanuts hanging at the east of the bar, all bagged up and numbered, ready for purchase and enjoyment. Those peanuts, that entire program, is managed by Rachel and Rick. They buy the peanuts, package them up and have them available for us all to enjoy.
The cool part here is that the money raised is earmarked by them to make our lodge better. Recently they funded a shortfall on the camera project and provided the needed funds to complete the project. They’ve used their profits to buy needed tv’s for the lounge as well as all the materials needed to paint the entire social quarters – and they did most of the work themselves! They’ve done so many good things for our lodge with this program that we can’t help but thank them for their efforts
Rachel and Rick – Thank you! Your efforts are helping build the fun in Ballard and is encouraging those around you to have fun, enjoy our facilities and volunteer to help out around the lodge. Well done and thank you from the Past Exalted Ruler Association and your fellow lodge members.
