Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 27, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 2t - THE IETHMIDQE HIRAID - Saturday, March 27, 1971 l* APRIL 3rd* I In LETHBRIDG Lethbridge Lodge No. 37 Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks of Canada WHAT IS AN ELK? The Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks in Canada is a fraternal and service organization of a national character, embodying the ideals of community friendship and service. Its membership is open to all honorable men who believe in a supreme being, law and order, and constitutional government. WHAT DOES ELKDOM DO IN THE COMMUNITY? Elkdom serves the community by taking an active and intelligent interest in everything that tends to the betterment and welfare of the localities in which its lodges are located. WHERE DO WE OBTAIN OUR FUNDS? The majority of our funds are obtained from our 'Annual Carnival and Car Raffle. Our Thursday night Bingos, which are open to Lodge members and guests, and the general public, also provide a substantial amount. These two main projects, along with smaller functions enable the Lethbridge Lodge to donate from $7,000.00 to $10,000.00 annually to needy organizations in our community. Over the years this total is in excess of $335,000.00. We are assisted in many of our projects by the Ladies' Auxiliary to the B.P.O. Elks, known as the Order of the Royal Purple. The Elks' Club is a self-sustaining business operated completely separate from the Lodge, using no Lodge monies or funds, and is provided for the enjoyment and fellowship of Elks' members and their invited guests. MAYOR'S MESSAGE It is my pleasure to declare March 29th to April 3rd, 1971, as ELK WEEK IN THE CITY OF LETHBRIDGE We pay a tribute to a large group of citizens for their dedicated approach to the principles on which this Fraternal Organization is founded. Charity - Justice - Brotherly Love and Fidelity. Through their sincere interest in so many areas of community concern such as Deaf Detection and Development Program, etc., the community is mat much richer for their service. The work with and support of our Youth motivates many additional youngsters to effectively assume their citizenship responsibilities in future years. This program is one of encouragement in accepting the principles of dignity for their fellow man, democratic beliefs and loyalty in the world brotherhood of man. Success to all in all your future endeavors. Mayor A. C. Anderson ELK WEEK ACTIVITIES LETHBRIDGE ELKS LODGE CHARITABLE FUNDS HAVE ASSISTED THE FOLLOWING: 1.
