The rumors are true, during the 2021 BPOE Natation Convention it was announced that St. Louis Lodge #9 achieved All American Lodge Status. The lodge will soon announce a logo creation contact followed by swag commemorating the achievement. Expect this to be well covered in the August Lodge Magazine.
Per the Grand Lodge, All-American Lodge Contest-A is, “This is the most prestigious of the Grand Lodge Awards, for it recognizes those Lodges best exemplifying that Elks Care – Elks Share. You must, however, enter in order to have a chance to win.”
The entre form for the fiscal 2021 contest was published in September 2020 which has been a labor of love of P.E.R. Luby’s since. Per Grand Lodge guidelines, our four page Activities and Points entre forms (see below) were provided to our District Deputy Grand Exalted Ruler in late March 2021.
Winners will be announced during day two of the general session of the Elks National Convention Tuesday 6 being held in Tampa Florida.
