The Oklahoma Past Exalted Ruler Association will award one grant annually in the amount of $500. All Lodges in Oklahoma are eligible to reply. Target groups for the grant should be youth‐oriented.

The Officers of the Oklahoma PER Association will accept applications from the Lodges in their District until the ER/Secretary Clinic in March. The applications will be evaluated by the Oklahoma PER Association Officers. The winning Lodge will be notified and the Grant Check will be awarded at the State Convention in April.

To All Oklahoma Elks,

Thank you for the support of our neighbors to the south. We initially sent $10,000 to Texas and we have now through your generosity raised an additional $2,700. In addition, the Oklahoma Elks Lodges collected over 100 boxes of supplies that were shipped out to Texas by A-1 Freeman Moving Group and North American Van Lines thanks to local Director of Consumer Sales, Adam Nevitt. Edmond Lodge #2578, under the direction of PER Gerald Hulsey, collected the donations, packed the 100 boxes of supplies and loaded the delivery truck on Monday evening 9/25/2017.

We would like to thank all Elk members who have given supplies and financial gifts as well as Oklahoma Car Shows, Lakeview Baptist Church of Guthrie, Oklahoma, and especially A-1 Freeman Moving Group of Edmond for providing the free delivery of the relief items to our good neighbors in Texas. What a great response from our Oklahoma Elks.

Now let’s talk about how we are doing in Oklahoma. The Billy “O” Wilson Golf tournament raised $3,887 more than what was promised to the state. Thank you Oklahoma Golfers. Great job golf committee.

We are not doing so well in other areas. Oklahoma has the worst delinquency rate in the nation. I know each of the lodges is working hard to correct that situation. Delinquency is always hard to control. Last year we were very close to a positive membership. Let’s work to reach that goal this year. On a positive note Oklahoma is 7th in the nation in new memberships and reinstatement. If we can get our delinquency rate under control we’ll reach that goal of a positive membership.

For OEMP we are at $15,821.16 – way below where we need to be. My goal for this year was $7.30 per person. That’s about $60,000. Let’s get the money in that you have raised to Mike Pippenger our State Treasurer.

So far this year we have raised $1,985 for our veterans program. I know that almost every lodge has done something for the Veterans. If you send in the money you raise for an event you can request a check for that amount and we (The State) will get credit for the amount of money sent in. We started a 5 Buck Chuck drive this year. If you’ve collected some money for that, be sure to ear mark the funds for the 5 Buck Chuck drive.

We are behind on ENF also. So far donations are just shy of $32,000. My goal was $7.00 per member which is around $60,000. Let’s get the money that you are holding sent in. Remember we always get more money back from ENF than we send in. Also, some of the grants you want to get depend on you reaching the national goal of $4.75 per person.

Thanks for your support in all our programs. Only through your efforts can we achieve the raising of funds to support charity and scholarships. Let’s work hard to reach all the goals.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. I wish each one of a very successful and healthful new year.

Mike Robinson, President OEA
