Greetings Englewood Elks,


The Toast is finally back for good, as is a lot of new things for our lodge. Yes, with the exception of our roof, the rebuild is finally completed. It has been a long, and very stressful year for me personally, as well as several of our long term members. Yes, in a few weeks it will be 1 year since the hurricane. During this past year, we’ve had many ups and downs, made money, lost money, had confrontations with each other, partied with each other.


I bring this up because it’s water over the dam. We now have to operate as if it never happened, and move forward with our brand new and beautiful building. Our event calendar is filling up very quickly as everyone in the community is excited. I want you all to know that we have two grand re-openings that we are going to hold.


The first one is September 7th. Michael D’Amore has offered to do a fundraiser for us, along with Rocky Rick Krieger. We are very excited and can’t wait.


I am definitely thinking of all you snowbirds that have had to endure our rebuild from a few updates when I was able to give them. So, the second, and just as big of a celebration some time in January. You all will be pleasantly surprised when you get back.
