Believe in the goodness in thyself as well as in others.

Protect childhood with tenderness, old age with respect, cherish with reverence the memory of those who have passed.

Observe faithfully the golden rule.

Enjoy the good things of earth. Keep within thee the Glorious shine of youth and remain always of good cheer.

A Message from the Grand Exalted Ruler
Hon. Malcolm J. McPherson Jr.
Forget resolutions: Set one Elks goal for 2018

The new year brings an opportunity to start fresh. We make resolutions to stop procrastinating, eat healthier, exercise more, act nicer to others, and so on. Yet many of us set unachievable expectations and are left wondering why we abandon our resolutions by February.

Let’s resolve to get rid of resolutions this year and instead set goals that we can realistically attain. I challenge you to choose just one actionable goal that you can execute this calendar year within your Lodge, community, or the greater Order. Here are some ideas to get you started:

. Share your pride in being an Elk by recruiting and installing a new member.

. Volunteer to chair a committee or event within your Lodge.

. Run for an officer position within your Lodge this coming March.

. Seek out a new charitable initiative for your Lodge to support in your community.

. Master the Elks ritual process and help strengthen your Lodge’s ritual performance.

I hope these ideas spark a desire to make a difference in your community and work together with fellow members. If we give ourselves realistic goals, then we’re more likely to stick to them and ultimately become a stronger Lodge.

As Pat and I get back on the road again this month, another one of my goals for the remaining year is to promote our 150 years of Elkdom. As we get closer to our annual reunion in July in San Antonio, Texas, I challenge each of you to bring your great works of Elkdom into your local communities.

I look forward to hearing about the ways you are strengthening Elkdom as we continue this journey together.
