Brigantine Elks Lodge No. 2428 – Week of Oct. 26, 2012

Attention: open in a new window. PrintE-mail


The next two weeks are shaping up to be busy ones at the Lodge. Kicking it all off is the Adult Halloween Party tomorrow night, Oct. 27. The Lodge is beginning to look downright eerie as the committee turns the building into a haunted castle. Open to the public by permit, this is only for those 21 years of age or older. Get your costume ready, because there will be prizes. Tickets are available in the lounge or at the door that night. Come on out for a ghoulishly good time!

Then Wednesday, Oct. 31, is Halloween. We ask everyone, if they must drive, to do so very cautiously. The little ghosts and goblins won't be watching out for you in their haste to collect their treats. Thanks.

The following day, Thursday, Nov. 1, the Annual Fall Striper Classic Tournament kicks off with the captain's meeting at 7 p.m. The fishing begins in earnest the following day and runs 24 hours a day until Sunday afternoon, Nov. 4. Open to both boaters and surf fishers, there will be awards and prizes after a repast. Registration is $60 per boat (up to four anglers) or $25 per person in the surf category. To sign up or get more information, contact Guy at (609) 266-0423 or Mike at (609) 264-0631. Good luck!

On Tuesday, Nov. 6, are elections.  Being non-political and non-sectarian, we can't get involved in backing any one candidate, but we can urge you to exercise your right of franchise. Up for grabs are the Presidency, Congressional seats and the four City Council ward positions, and all are very important to the future of our nation and community.  So get out there and vote!

The Investigating Committee has decided to hold one more session on Friday, Nov. 9, beginning at 7:30 p.m., because five candidates were unable to make either of the two regularly scheduled sessions.  They and the eight already approved candidates will be initiated on Saturday, Nov. 10, beginning at 5 p.m. If you are still holding an application, get it in to the Secretary ASAP.
