|Exalted Ruler Bob Schmidt|
Message from the Exalted Ruler 2015-2016:
There comes a time in life when we must step up to make this a kinder, better place. Even though I am not at the Lodge in body, I am with you in my thoughts and prayers. I am sking each member to continue to support the Lodge and its activities, as I have all these years.
My wife, First Laoy Chickie, and I believe in the Elks and all they stand for, the support of children, veterans, those less fortunate and the true meaning of brotherly love, justice, charity and fidelity.
Please continue to work together, do not let petty differences and opinions cause us to lose the true meaning of Elkdom. Strive for fellowship, friendship and brotherly love to continue to move our Lodge forward.
With Brotherly Love, ER Bob Schmidt
