It's hard to believe it's July already where did June go! Big things are happening in July, first the Lakewood ball game Clowns VS the Military July 8th gate opens to the public at 12:30. Bring the family friends all proceeds will be supporting our Military families.

On July 21 it is our Fluke tournament if you did not received raffle tickets in the mail  I apologize for some reason the lodge computer did not print the labels? Also there was a misunderstanding as to the date of the drawing our license has July 28th on it so we will be drawing the winner the following Sat. July 28.  I will be happy to call the winner at that time. Sorry for the confusion.  Please stop by the elks and buy your tickets or better yet come on over to the fluke tournament buy your tickets and lend a hand.

We are also will be selling our Restaurant raffle tickets for $5.00 you can have a chance to win 5-$100. gift cards to these restaurants: Cordi's Italian Grill Brick, Shrimp Box-- Point Pleasant, Crabs Claw-Lavellette, Duc Amici-Brick, Blue fish Station -Normandy Bch.

We worked our first Army family picnic on June 6th while most elks were enjoying the convention in Wildwood. I would like to thank Charlie Podesta, Les Hill and Carol Bernard and Antsy for soldiering on despite the confusion at the gate, and finally finding our destination. We were none stop working to serve the Army along with their families.
Thank you.... No a Huge Thank you to Regina McCabe for once again setting up crews to sell our raffle tickets at the 7/11 . Every bit helps!

We made a donation to the NJ National guard and one to the Jackson Elks for the District Homeless Veterans fund raiser they are hosting.

We had our first fishing trip aboard the Ideal boat, we had Veterans from East Orange Veteran Hospital and JBMDL Air Force and a Vietnam vet. Thank you Bob Scott for cooking, Regina, Phyllis, Stephanie, Les, Irene and Matthew and Luke your help is very much appreciated. And Thank you Carol Bernard for serving our Vets on the boat.
