Weekend Campout

There is no meeting this coming Thursday, May 25.  We have received a dispensation to skip the meeting as most of the officers and many members will be getting the Lamoille Canyon Lions Camp ready for the Memorial Day Campout.  If you haven’t signed up yet to attend, there’s still a few days left to sign up to attend the Saturday Night dinner ($12) and raffle (plus the Margarita Bar the Scholarship Committee is hosting).  Just let our Lodge Secretary (greatbasinelks at gmail dot com) know by Tuesday, May 23 if you want to attend that evening event with your fellow Elk.  It’ll be a good time!
Thursday, May 25 will be a work party day at the Lions Campground before our campout.  If you can lend a hand, please show up at noon or close to it and join the work party.
If you have hand-made items or other goodies to contribute to the Saturday Night Raffle at the campout, please bring them with you and let’s have a successful raffle.  We have some great artists in the group and good cooks and always have wonderful items to win!
Finally, if you can’t camp this weekend, you are still welcome to come out and hang out at the campground and visit your fellow Elk during the weekend.  The Margarita Bar is open Friday night – just bring an hors d’oeuvre and join the party!
Looking forward to seeing everyone out at Lamoille Canyon.  Should be a beautiful weekend!
