We had over 200 people attend our Labor Day BBQ! I think that breaks all records for Labor Day. Thanks for Chef David and the Yard Crew who pitched in to help. Sorry our CD player decided not to cooperate as planned.
On the Saturday evening of September 14th, the Rhodes Brothers did it again! It was a terrific musical show to a wall-to-wall group of people - about 280! We are especially proud of Ed Rhodes, since he's one of our very own. If you did not enjoy their show, it's because you were not there. In addition, our Dining Room served more than 120 dinners that otherwise would not have been served on Saturday night.
Do we have a full schedule of events for October??? Just keep reading!

The Miami Elks Mighty Players Group has been discontinued due to lack of participation. I want to thank the few that did show up. I thought you were very good and I am disappointed that it has been dropped.
