What a busy month for the Elks. Fe­bru­ary’s meet­ing be­gan with the De­parted Brother cer­e­mony to honor Past ER, Brother John Palmer. Brother Palmer spent two years as ER and car­ried out th­ese du­ties well. An up­date was given on the suc­cess of the Elks trip to an Ed­mon­ton Oil Kings Jr. Hockey game. The Past ER and Oys­ter Feed is con­firmed for Tues­day, Mar. 22. The Pro­vin­cial Pres­i­dent dropped in for an im­promptu chat af­ter vis­it­ing the Royal Pur­ple Ladies. The club draw was won by Larry Meyer who do­nated his share to the Chil­dren’s Fund. Club 200 win­ners were: Glen Craig, Don Fooks, Bob Boswell and Cody Fer­gu­son.

Satur­day night’s Yuk Yuk’s Com­edy Show was a great suc­cess with about 250 peo­ple en­joy­ing a tremen­dous evening. The three per­form­ers were top notch and the Elk Ladies, with Ka­t­rina’s help, did a su­per job with the food and dé­cor. A lot of ef­fort went into this en­deavor and many newer Elk mem­bers came through with fly­ing col­ors. Quin­ton Baird and Ryan Rivett were out­stand­ing with the or­ga­niz­ing and many non-Elks and hockey moms as­sisted in ticket sales. Thank you to one and all for your sup­port.

At a spe­cial pre­sen­ta­tion made by Hall Board Chair and Elk mem­ber David Web­ster, a plaque was un­veiled hon­or­ing Lloyd Dun­can’s ef­forts in this com­mu­nity. Brother Lloyd was a 60 year Elk and his out­stand­ing work within the ranks was se­cond to none. His ef­forts were also well known out­side the Elks. No mat­ter what was needed, he was there with equip­ment, knowl­edge, brawn and a drive to get things done. We hope this plaque, hang­ing on the walls that he helped build, will re­mind folks of what he has given us.
