I would like to thank Exalted Ruler Laurie Montag for her leadership this past year. It takes dedicated people to help make this Lodge run smoothly! A shout out to the Lodge secretary Jerry Wilson, who truly makes the Lodge run day to day without a hitch.
And now it is time for a new ER. Troy Pedersen has been elected to help guide the Lincoln Lodge #80 thru the fraternal year 2018-2019. I would like to reintroduce myself. I was appointed Inner Guard by PER Larry Schwindt for the 2014 year, Chaplin by PER Larry Bratt for the 2015 year, appointed esquire by PER Gerald Miles for the 2016 year, elected as Loyal Knight in 2017 under PER Mary Brooks, and finally elected as Leading Knight under ER Laurie Montag in the 2018 year.

I ran for and was elected to be the ER for this upcoming year. I am looking forward to the 2018-2019 fraternal year and working with the committee chairmen to help make the Lodge work and grow as we know it can.

Lincoln Lodge #80 was started in 1888, so 2018 is a perfect time for growth of the Lodge. Not just in numbers, but by the good works we do and the public needs to know about it! So on April 2nd 10:30 at the state capital the Governor of the GREAT STATE OF NEBRASKA will have an ELKS proclamation on the ELKS 150 years of ELKDOM. If you have some time, come on down to the capital building. It is open to the public, so the more the merrier! Finally, I would like to personally thank Randy King for sponsoring me, PER Doug Reinks for my initiation, PERs Larry Schwindt and Larry Bratt for getting me involved in being a Lodge officer!!

Mark down Saturday April 14 at 3:00pm for the installation of lodge officers. All members and family are invited. Heather and I look forward to seeing you there!
So as always get active go to the dinners and just have fun.

Troy Pederson, Exalted Ruler
