Lodge Scrapbook Contest

All Lodges are encouraged to enter the FSEA Lodge Scrapbook Contest.  Each Lodge should appoint a committee now to give them plenty of time to gather the material needed for your entry and to complete your binder. Elk members across the country promote activities in their communities on a daily basis. These activities, and the community services we provide, are at the very heart of our organization. Grand Lodge programs such as the Elks Hoop Shoot Contest, Most Valuable Student Scholarship Awards, Drug Awareness Education programs and the work of the Elks National Veterans Service Commission are just a few of the community service programs sponsored by Elk Lodges.

The strength of our community image is dependent, not on what we know, but what the residents of our communities know about the activities we support. We must inform our communities what we do. Spreading the knowledge of the work performed by the members of your Lodge will help you achieve a strong community image. This, in turn, will ultimately earn your Lodge support and respect in your community. Also, the youth of the communities who are touched by the works of our Order will become our membership base of the future. For these reasons, your Lodge is encouraged to fully publicize all Grand Lodge, State Association and community service programs throughout your local area. You can be that Beacon of Hope in the community.

To enter the 2017-18 FSEA Scrapbook Contest:

Document your programs with media clippings, letters of appreciation, pictures and short concise text in an 8.5 by 11-inch, three ring binder not to exceed four inches in thickness. Have your Lodge Secretary certify in writing the number of members in your Lodge as of March 31, 2016 and include the certification with your binder so that it will judged in the appropriate membership division.

Submit your binder to Glenn Tekerman, Lodge Activities Vice Chairman, 13876 SW 56 St., Ste 135, Miami, FL 33175 no later than March 15, 2018.

Scrapbooks submitted will be retained until displayed at the State Convention in May 2018. Winning Lodges of each division will be contacted upon completion of judging. Please pick up your Lodge Scrapbook at the State Convention before departing Orlando.

Fraternally,

Marge Spera, Lodge Activities Committee Chaiman
