HEAR YE, HEAR YE, HEAR YE!!

EXTRA, EXTRA, READ ALL ABOUT IT!!!

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, BOYS AND GIRLS!

This is a new dawn, the likes of which we have never seen in our lifetime. What we knew as normal is no longer.  As a society, we are being called upon to exhibit extraordinary patience and respect for our fellow brothers and sisters during these trying times. As Elks, we have the foundation and groundwork of our order to guide us. “To do unto others as we would they should do unto us”. Let’s keep this in mind and be respectful of one another as we move forward.

THE LODGE WILL BE REOPENING MONDAY, JUNE 1st AT 11:00 AM.

Why 11:00 AM you ask?

Our annual Health Dept. inspection will occur that day as our Health Dept. permit is on the cusp of being out of date, through no fault of our own, i.e., due to the COVID-19 pandemic closure. The Health Inspector is working with us to ensure that we remain compliant when we reopen.

MONDAY, JUNE 1st AT 11:00 AM, THE KITCHEN WILL BE OPEN

TO SERVE YOU LUNCH.

DUE TO COST INCREASES OF MEAT PRODUCTS CAUSED BY COVID-19, SOME MENU ITEMS HAVE INCURRED A PRICE INCREASE OR HAVE BEEN ELIMINATED OR CHANGED.
DURING ALL DINING HOURS YOU WILL BE SEATED, BY A HOSTESS, RATHER THAN SEATING YOURSELF AS IN THE PAST. THE REASON IS THAT WE ABSOLUTELY NEED TO PRACTICE PROPER SANITATION PROCEDURES. IF THE TABLE YOU ARE TO BE SEATED AT HAS NOT BEEN PROPERLY SANITIZED FOLLOWING THE DINERS BEFORE YOU, IT COULD PUT YOU AND OUR STAFF AT RISK.
THE DINING ROOM AND DART ROOM HAVE BEEN RECONFIGURED TO SEAT 116 DINERS, WITH THE TABLES BEING A MEASURED SIX FEET APART. THE TABLES IN THE DINING ROOM AND THE DART ROOM WILL EACH SEAT FOUR (4) AT A TABLE, WITH THE EXCEPTION OF A COUPLE OF TABLES WHICH WILL SEAT SIX (6). THERE WILL BE NO TEN (10) TOP TABLE SEATING! IF YOU HAVE A PARTY OF MORE THAN 4 OR 6, PLAN TO BE SEATED AT MORE THAN ONE TABLE.
THERE WILL BE NO PULLING TOGETHER OF TABLES AND NO MOVING OF CHAIRS FROM ONE TABLE TO ANOTHER. THOSE WHO VIOLATE THESE RULES WILL BE ASKED TO LEAVE IMMEDIATELY. NO EXCEPTIONS!!
OUR PRIMARY CONCERN IS TO PROTECT THE HEALTH AND WELL BEING OF YOU OUR MEMBERS AND OUR STAFF.
PLEASE BE CONSIDERATE OF THOSE WAITING TO DINE. WE ONLY HAVE 116 SEATS AVAILABLE FOR DINING. AFTER YOU HAVE ENJOYED YOUR MEAL, PLEASE VACATE YOUR TABLE SO OTHERS CAN BE SEATED. A HEARTY THANK YOU, IN ADVANCE, FROM THOSE WHO ARE WAITING!

 THE LODGE BAR WILL ALSO REOPEN AT 11:00 AM ON MONDAY, JUNE 1st.

There will be MANY CHANGES DUE TO THE SOCIAL DISTANCING MANDATES as set forth by our Governor!! The bar will be open WITH SOCIAL DISTANCE SEATING!! Every other bar stool has been removed to maintain social distancing. DO NOT REARRANGE THE STOOLS! TAKE A SEAT AND ENJOY YOUR FAVORITE BEVERAGE.
For you beer drinkers, don’t blast the Bartenders if they don’t have your favorite flavor on tap! Due to COVID-19, some beers are not available in kegs by the vendors at this time. Service at the bar will be a little slower than you are used to, as the Bartenders will be practicing sanitizing for your health and theirs.
These restrictions are not going to last forever, but for now, let’s be patient and make the best of what we have to work with. As the Governor lifts restrictions, so will we.
PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT OUR PRIMARY CONCERN IS TO PROTECT THE HEALTH AND WELL BEING OF YOU OUR MEMBERS AND OF OUR STAFF.

UPDATED JUNE CALENDAR!

Click here for the Revised June Calendar to bring yourself up to date on the many changes and deletions that have had to be made for us to be able to reopen the Lodge. All are due to social distancing requirements, sanitation requirements, and the size of some of the meeting groups.

MEMBERSHIP RENEWAL

THERE WILL BE A GRACE PERIOD FROM JUNE 1st TO JUNE 15th.

For those of you that have not renewed your membership, last year’s membership card will grant you access to the social quarters only during the grace period.
THE GRACE PERIOD DOES NOT APPLY TO LODGE MEETINGS. YOU MUST HAVE A CURRENT MEMBERSHIP CARD TO ENTER LODGE MEETINGS.
YOUR EXPIRED MEMBERSHIP CARD WILL NOT WORK IN THE CARD READER AT THE DOOR DURING THE GRACE PERIOD! DO NOT BEAT UP THE OFFICER AT THE DOOR BECAUSE YOUR CARD DOESN’T WORK!! MAKE IT A POINT TO VISIT THE LODGE OFFICE DURING THAT TIME TO RENEW YOUR MEMBERSHIP.

THE LODGE OFFICE WILL BE OPEN 8 AM TO 4 PM MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY.

STARTING JUNE 16th, YOU WILL NOT BE ADMITTED INTO THE LODGE WITHOUT A CURRENT MEMBERSHIP CARD!!

Like you, I am excited to get the Lodge reopened and once again enjoy the fellowship of being with my extended family and friends.
Stay well and stay safe.
Fraternally,
Bill Horton, Exalted Ruler

  1. Hi Bill, Thanks for the great communication from you regarding our opening on June 1st! We, the Pinochle Club, respect the CDC requirements of Covid19, and we all feel we can comply with its regulations of tables being 6 feet apart, no more than 6 at a table and sanitizing chairs and tables after each usage. With this stated, we request to return using the card room on Mondays from 11:30pm to 3:00 pm. Also, please reinstate us on the calendar. Thanks so much!

  2. How much is the annual dues for myself and my wife? Would love to send them in. Wouldn’t accept the money early in January and then closed when due because of Corona. Your help and response is appreciated.

    1. Our annual dues are $81.50 and include a Membership card, door key card, and a spouse card. If you want a door key card for your spouse that is an additional $2.00. When you mail your dues in please include your membership number and any changes to your address, email, or phone number. Please mail to the Elks Office at:

      Elks #2399
      3532 McCulloch Blvd N.
      Lake Havasu City, AZ 86406

  3. Hallelujah – I can hardly wait for June 1. I have missed all my ELKS family and friends so much. Thanks to all our officers and volunteers who while abiding by the dictate of the Grand Exalted Ruler, COVID19 guild lines, and government orders, kept the home fires burning as we did our best to stay quarantined and wearing our masks.
    Let’s hope the worst of that is over and we are looking to better days to come.
    To all my gameplaying friends, I hope you are as eager as I am to start playing again. I’ll be ready June 1. If you will be too, let me hear from you.

  4. Can we resume playing Pinochle on Mondays?
    And could you please put us back on the calendar for Monday morning 11:30 to 3:00

    1. Sherry,
      Per the House Committee: The reopening date has not been set. Once the Lodge does reopen, all groups will be required to adhere to the social distancing guidelines. The House Committee is currently working on both of these issues and will be announced soon. Thank You,
