Merry Christmas to all!!!!! How time flies, it is hard to believe that Thanksgiving has passed and the Christmas season is here already. I trust that everyone had a safe and wonderful Thanksgiving, and found many things to be thankful for. I know I did.

I realize that these days society expects everyone to be politically correct, but I cannot bring it upon myself to say Happy Holidays. Our order is founded on the belief in God and Christmas is about the birth of our savior. Therefore I will continue to say and greet everyone with Merry Christmas. As the saying goes, Jesus is the reason for the season as well as letís keep Christ in Christmas.

During the Christmas season let us not forget all those who have made sacrifices for us. Our Military, Police, Firefighters, EMTís have to work on Christmas and do this willingly to allow us to celebrate with our loved ones and family safely and with the knowledge that they are there if we need any type of assistance. God bless our Military and Public services personnel.

I hope to see everyone that is able to help at the Christmas sacking on Friday, December 19th on the 5th floor of the Pinnacle Arena at 1030. Then at the Christmas party at the lodge that evening starting at 5:30. I know that we can use as much assistance as possible on Sunday at the arena for the 107th annual Childrenís Christmas party. Contact Larry Schwindt with and questions or to let him know that you can help.

Donít forget to buy your cash calendars from the lodge which the proceeds go to our scholarship program and the lodge. See Stephen Wirth for additional calendars.

May God bless you and your family during the Christmas season and may you all have a very blessed and safe Christmas.

Remember: Faith, Commitment, Be a Beacon

Yours in Elkdom,
Larry R. Bratt
