Grand Exalted Ruler Membership Awards

We are honored to recognize our member’s efforts in bringing the community into the walls of our great lodge and strengthening the Great Heart of Elkdom by proposing new members to our lodge and benevolent society and then seeing these members through to initiation and finally membership in our order.

Below is our final member from the 2017/2018 Elks year that our Grand Exalted Ruler Malcolm J. McPherson, Jr. and I would like to thank and congratulate for meeting and some exceeding our membership award goal of bringing in 3 new or reinstated members to our order.  By bringing our community members within our walls you help build the stepping stone needed to enable our lodge to achieve our Grand Exalted Rulers goal of “Strengthening Elkdom Through Community Awareness.”

This award will be presented at the regular lodge meeting on May 8th, 2018 by our Exalted Ruler Nestor Tamayao.  Grand Exalted Ruler Award pins are earned for any combination of 3 new or reinstated members.  One pin for every three members.  A Grand Exalted Ruler Award watch is earned for any combination of 11 new or reinstated members.  Want to know where you stand on earning an award, take a look here (
