I was honored on Monday 03/09/2020 at the Annual Lodge Awards Night by Gary Keener our current Exalted Ruler (ER). Gary’s motto as our ER for this past year has been “Elks Inspire”. I was selected as the Volunteer of the Year due to filling in for the normal breakfast chef Jaime so he could support his daughter on Sunday mornings. I had assisted Jaime several times and he is a great teacher. He prepared be for what needed to be prepared for each breakfast service and how to make the special green chili on the grill. I guess Gary Inspired me to be the right person for the job as fill in chef Jaime during this past year. See full list of all Award Winners in the April Nugget starting on page 4.
