Oklahoma Elks Association “Elks Day at the State Capitol”, with Root Beer Floats
Wednesday, April 3, 2019 – 9 a.m. to 4 p.m
All Oklahoma Lodges have been asked to personally write/invite their local Senate and House of Representative Members (info has been given all Lodges on who Representatives are…and a sample invitation letter)
All Lodges have been asked to try to attend this affair……bringing their displays (tri-fold boards or whatever) showing off their Lodge’s special Community Activities and Charitable events (i.e. Veterans/Scholarship/Memorial Services/Hoop Shoot/Flag Day/Christmas Baskets, etc.).
The Oklahoma Elks Association has reserved the 4th Floor Rotunda area at the Capitol for that date. House and Senate Chambers are located on either side of the Rotunda in that area.
At 3 p.m., OEA President Gary Lassiter and a “Cadre” of his PSP’s…or maybe VP’s, DDGER’s or a PGER… will be serving Root Beer Floats (Blue Bell is the “Best”) to all Senators, House Reps and their Staff. Governor Stitt and other Legislative dignitaries have also been invited…and indeed… the full Legislative Members and their Staff.
We are looking forward to “educating them” – at least somewhat – on what 8,500+ Oklahoma Elks do for the State of Oklahoma through our Charitable Endeavors……like the $8.5 Million we did in Charitable Works last year. We hope to see a lot of Elks in attendance.
