What an amazingly busy and fun time we’ve had around the lodge this summer! As we come into our even busier fall months the Past Exalted Ruler Association and our Ballard Elks Lodge would like to recognize an Elk that time and time again has stepped up to run not only some fun lodge events but does the behind the scenes things that makes us all thankful and proud to call him an Elk. You’ve seen him welcoming people to the lodge and consistently organizing volunteers to do good for our community
This member of the Ballard Elks Lodge, initiated in February of 1991 was recognized by the lodge with Honorary Life Member status in 2005. He has served as a lodge officer multiple times, acting as our Exalted Ruler in 2004 and a lodge trustee after that. He has ran and organized our Christmas Basket program for easily 12 years and this past month put on one of the most well attended Ballard Elks Car Shows any of us can remember. Raising thousands for our lodge and charity while at the same time hosting an event that every age group in our lodge could come and enjoy. With literally hundreds of spectators wandering through our parking lot during the event we exposed our lodge, the great things we do and incredible fun we had to many in our community
Johnny Muzevic – Thank you! You’ve gone above and beyond to help our lodge succeed, to support Elkdom and to set the example of what it means to be connected to Elkdom and our community. Your efforts are helping build the fun and friendship in Ballard and is encouraging those around you to recognize what great things we have and look into how they can do more for our fellow lodge members and our community. Well done and thank you from the Past Exalted Ruler Association and your fellow Elks at the Ballard Elks lodge 827. It’s these types of actions that leave a lasting impression.
