Welcome to the New Egypt Elks....

"The Friendliest Lodge In The Southwest District"

Serving the Community for Almost 30 years.

After more than a quarter of a century, the New Egypt Elks Lodge #2457 BPOE, is still going strong.

LET'S TAKE A LOOK BACK......The New Egypt group began building in May, 1977, on nine acres which was purchased on Lakewood Road. After months of building, the Elks celebrated the opening of the Lodge with a New Year's Eve party in December of the same year.

The charter/founding members included the first 150 members of the New Egypt Lodge. A plaque in the Lodge names Donal Mallow as chairman and Joseph Layton, Frank Paschal, and John Yorke as committee members.

In 1971, with the help of Clarance Little from the Hightstown Lodge, plans began for the establishment of a lodge in New Egypt. These interested began meeting at Rova Farms, the Catholic Church and rented the firehouse to work out the details of forming as a Lodge.

After six years of planning, the group was finally granted a chart with Robert E. Tilghman serving as their very first Exalted Ruler. At the same time, the wives who helped out the founding members, formed the Elk Mates.

The birth of the Order of Elks goes back much further than 25 years. The organization first began as the "Jolly Corks: and was lead by London born comic, singer and dance, Charles Vivian . Although first congregating for their own amusement, the Jolly Corks, a group of artists and thespians, decided to dedicate the group to helping the needy. This idea first began when one of the Jolly Corks died leaving his wife and children alone.

On February 16, 1868, in New York City, the Jolly Corks formed the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, lead by Mr. Vivian. As social activities and benefit performances increased, the popularity of the group swept across the country. Soon, groups from other cities were requesting permission to form their own Lodges.

The Elks then asked the New York State Legislature for a Charter that would allow the Grand Lodge to establish Lodges anywhere in the United States. The Charter was granted and on March 10, 1871, the founding group received the first local charter as New York Lodge No.1.

Throughout history, the spirit of the Elks is evident. During World War I, the Elks funded the first two field hospitals in France and also built a 72-room community house in Camp Sherman, Ohio. They also built a 700-bed rehabilitation hospital in Boston and raised money for the Salvation Army's frontline Canteens.

The Elks continued in World War II and was one of the only civilian organizations who helped recruit construction workers and contributed books to the Merchant Marines.

During the Korean conflict, the Elks donated more than 500,000 pints of blood to help wounded soldiers and also donated money for a recreation pavilion at the Navy Hospital on Guam, for casualties of the Vietnam War.

Even more recently, the Elks showed their dedication during Operation Desert Storm by writing letters to help build the morale of the soldiers. And still today, the New Egypt Elks continue the tradition and uphold the four cardinal virtues of the Lodge....Charity, Justice, Brotherly Love and Fidelity

Times have changed since its installation all those years ago. Now is a time when technology rules and computers set the pace, the Elks spirit of dedication to the community remains constant. The Lodge is dedicated to service to the community; specifically handicapped children and veterans. It sponsors community activities such as food basket donations to the needy, scholarships for high school students and many other charitable functions.

Current Exalted Ruler, Mary Schoettmer states "We want to rekindle friendships old and new and continue to build from the foundation on which this Order was created".

The Elk, a peaceful animal, will rise in defense of its own in the face of a threat.

The Elk represents a distinctly American, intensely patriotic, and family oriented brotherhood.

Exalted Rulers Message

Dear Members,

I hope your summer was an enjoyable time for you all. It has been a very busy time for the members of the Lodge who have been working hard to keep it up and running. Thank you! I know it was not easy but you got the job done with less than adequate help, with more than adequate effort!

Wow...Fall already! Six month into the year and all is not well!

The Officers, Trustees and Past Exalted Rulers have met thrice with the District Deputy and his team of Grand Lodge Officers and our Southwest District Vice-president to try to find ways to help this Lodge. For the time being, we will be left on our own to try to make this Lodge work. If the members do not succeed in bringing the life back to this Lodge, there will no longer be New Egypt Elks #2457. the membership must support this Lodge if there is to be a future. We must also have the support of the community, so please, even if you are not happy with everything that goes on here, remember if you cannot say something pleasant, do not say anything.

This Lodge has had five of its Officers and one committee chairperson resign their chair in the last few week. This leaves us extremely undermanned. If there are any members who are truly interested in making this Lodge remain the shining star of the Southwest District and are willing to commit to the work of Elkdom, please come forward. The work we do is truly extraordinary and worth the effort it take to make a go of it.

Fall Conference is also approaching and I will be going as your representative. I am looking forward to gaining knowledge and ideas for a forward momentum for this Lodge.

Our Lodge hosted this year's District Soccer Shoot on September 30 at the New Egypt High School. It was a very good turnout and the children had a great time despite the rain. I want to thank Jeff Pivovarnick for organizing the day, the Board of Education for allowing us the use of their facilities, and everyone who came out to help with this event: it was an enjoyable day for all. The State Soccer Shoot will be held in Old Bridge on October 28th. Anyone who is interested in witnessing first hand this marvelous youth activity is welcome to come and support these young athletes.

I would like to acknowledge our Officer of the Month of September, Deena Britt, and our Elk of the Month of September, Susan Fasulo with many thanks for their continued work on behalf of New Egypt Elks #2457.

The Veterans will be honored at a dinner at New Egypt Elks #2457 on November 11, 2001. Tickets for this event are $8 in advance and $10 at the door. A small price to pay to let them know how much they are appreciated. There will also be a collection of personal items and clothing for the Holiday Season. Please give generously. It is paramount that all of us not only take the time to honor them on that special day, but to remember them and pray for them every day. I ask that we also take time to thank the men and women now in the military for their commitment to insuring the Freedoms that we all enjoy.

Sincerely, fraternally and with hope for the future,
Wanda

Past Exalted Rulers Association

The Past Exalted Rulers met on October 16th @ 8pm. The turnout was an excellent one. Those in attendance were: Bob Tilghman, Tom Fields, Al Combs, Rich Young, Stan Sherman, Al Huddleston, Harry Crain, George Ward III, John York, and Ray Donohue. Also Exalted Ruler Wanda Pivovarnick sat in on the meeting. Wanda was very encouraged by what the PER's had to offer as guidance. Plans were made to assure that the Lodge's Official Visit was a success. And succeed they did.

The next meeting of the PER Association will be on November 20th @ 8 pm and every 3rd Tuesday thereafter. These meetings are open to all members who wish to sit in. Many of you new members have never had the privilege to meet our earlier ERs. Robert Tilghman was this Lodges first Exalted Ruler. Come down and meet him and his successors, just think of the knowledge and experience they have that they're more than happy to share with all of you. Get to know our roots.

From The Secretary's Desk

Thanks you for all that you have done this year. Just a few things I need from a select group. Please pay your dues so we may put this work behind us, Thanks. Remember New York WTC, who can forget what has happened? Talk about a time for patriots...now is the time. Who is in charge of your Future? You are! What about your loyalty to America, to the American way? Take charge of your own security, just sit there and let someone else take care of you, figure they will take care of it? Wrong again. The Elks is an American organization participate in it. Help this Elk Lodge prove that the American way of life is a true one. Don't just talk about the things that don't work. What about the organization that does!? You are the Elks Lodge, not a select few, so prove it...get back here, be loyal!!! I could just see the NY fire dept. & volunteers saying, "I quit because I don't like it" Remember your reason for joining this Lodge. The time is NOW to make a difference, not when it's too late. YOUR ELKS LODGE NEEDS YOU NOW!!!

Yours truly,
Raymond W. Donohue, Secretary

From The Trustees


The New Egypt Elks would like all members to seriously consider taking an active role in the upcoming year. There are many positions and chairs available. Your participation is vital in this Lodge staying open!!! Without your help, the future of this Lodge is in great jeopardy. Please think about how you can help and contact the Lodge.

Have a good Spring and I hope to see more of you here at the Lodge.

House Happenings

Elks Honor Area Vets
The New Egypt Elks #2457 was the setting recently for a chicken dinner honoring our local Veterans as our guests. The hall was festively decorated in red, white & blue flags and banners. Amongst the many that enjoyed the tasty feast that day was the Honorable Mayor Ronald Dancer (pictured with Americanism Chairwoman Jeannie Golden). Also part of the day consisted of a exhibit of various military paraphernalia (pictured). The display was courtesy of Sgt. Chad Phillips and Tech 5 Julio Santiago from the 33rd Signal Construction Battalion Reenactors (WWII) who enthusiastically & expertly answered any questions from onlookers and demonstrated their skills with the usage of weapons of the era (foreground in military garb Tech 5 Julio Santiago - in background Sgt. Chad Phillips). For more information on their exhibits go to http://members.tripod.com/33rdscb/index.htm

Exalted Ruler Wanda Pivovarnick and Americanism Chairwoman Jeannie Golden wish to thank everyone that came out and supported our much deserving veterans that day. Many of the supporters also brought a donation for the vets wish list. Our vets are in great need of personal items such as toiletries, to-shirts and sweatsuits. The Lodge is still collecting these needed items to distribute to the Vets at Christmas time. If you wish to help out, you can drop off your donation at the Lodge any Friday night after 7pm or call the Lodge @758-8700


Santa is Coming to the New Egypt Elks
Santa Claus is coming to town and he's dropping by the New Egypt Elks Lodge #2457 - 105 Lakewood Rd. on Sunday, December 9 @ 2pm. Santa is looking forward to having all the good little boys and girls sit on his lap and tell him what is on their wish list this year. There will be refreshments and fun for everyone. For more information call the Lodge @758-8700. Who knows, you might even see Rudolph and his pals.
New Egypt Elks Honor Veteran


The New Egypt Elks Exalted Ruler, Wanda Pivovarnick and the Elks National Service Chairperson, Jeannie Golden were proud to honor their "Adopted Vet" Sal DeMeo at a recent fundraiser held at the Lodge.

In 1917 while the world was at war and the Elks were only 49 years old, the Elks asked themselves what the Order should do in this crisis. The membership enthusiastically and unanimously approved a resolution appropriating $1 million dollars for the War Relief Fund.

In 1918, to accommodate the maimed and wounded, the Elks built a 700-bed Reconstruction Hospital in Boston and gave it to the War Department. That was the only veterans hospital after Word War I that was donated by a private entity.

When thousands of wounded and disabled members of the armed forces returned to the States for recuperation at government hospitals, the Elks again stepped forward, offering their services to help entertain the veterans. The Elks provided the hospitals with radios, phonographs, playing cards, books, magazines, games, musical instruments, craft supplies and personal items.

The Elks volunteers also spent hours listening to these heroes. They heard their tales of horror and heroism during battle. They listened to the hopes and dreams of these young veterans who were far from home, family, spouses and sweethearts. Most of all, the Elks were there to lend support whenever possible.

In July 1946 at the Grand Lodge Session in New York, the Elks National Veterans Service Commission was created. During this session, the Elks pledged that "So long as there are veterans in our hospitals, the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks will never forget them". Our commitment continues to this day.


Elks Exalted Ruler Attends Fall Conference
Exalted Ruler Wanda Pivovarnick of the New Egypt Lodge #2457 of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks recently attended the New Jersey Elks Fall Conference in New Brunswick.

This conference, held at the mid-point of the Elk year, is to assist the Exalted Rulers in fulfilling their duties in meeting the mandates of the Grand Lodge and to show them where they stand in relation to other lodges in the state.

The Order of Elks is dedicated to aiding veterans, providing the handicapped child with their requirements, scholarships for high school, drug awareness and many other youth programs.

Elks Perform Memorial Service
New Egypt Lodge #2457 of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks recently held its Annual Memorial Service for deceased members of the Lodge.

Exalted Ruler, Wanda Pivovarnick, invited members of the community to attend this beautiful ceremony to honor the members of the Lodge who have passed away. The Order of Elks promises that an Elk will never be forgotten, even in death.

Investigation & Indoctrination

ELKS PRIDE

WHAT IS ELKS PRIDE? HOW DO YOU GET IT? IT'S NOT SOMETHING YOU CAN HOLD IN YOUR HAND. YOU SURELY CAN'T BUY IT AT WAL-MART. IT'S A FEELING YOU GET BY GIVING OF YOURSELF.

SEVEN YEARS AGO, I JOINED THE ELKS. MY FIRST YEAR WAS SPENT LEARNING ABOUT WHAT THE ELKS DID. I WAS SHOWN HOW TO COOK FOR LARGE GROUPS OF PEOPLE. OTHER MEMBERS GAVE ME INSIGHT AS TO HOW A LODGE WAS RUN. I GOT INVOLVED WITH A FEW COMMITTEES AND ATTENDED MEETINGS. SOON I FOUND OUT WHAT WAS MEANT BY "MAN COUNTS HIS STORES NOT IN WHAT IS SAVED, BUT BY WHAT IS GIVEN." THE MORE I GAVE, THE MORE I RECEIVED. WHAT WAS IT THAT I RECEIVED? PRIDE! PRIDE IS KNOWING THAT SPECIAL CHILDREN COULD SPEND A WEEK AT CAMP. THEIR FAMILIES COULD HAVE A WEEK TO THEMSELVES. SEEING THE TEARS OF JOY THEY HAD WHEN RE-UNITED. PRIDE IN COOKING FOR 200 PEOPLE I DON'T EVEN KNOW AND HEARING HOW MUCH EVERYONE ENJOYED THE NIGHT. KNOWING THAT A NEW COUPLE WILL HAVE A FOND MEMORY OF THEIR SPECIAL NIGHT. THIS IS A SMALL SAMPLE OF ELKS PRIDE.

WHAT IS IT AND HOW DO YOU GET IT? YOU ALREADY HAVE IT! NOW GIVE IT A CHANCE TO GROW. GET INVOLVED, COME TO MEETINGS, READ YOUR PUBLICATIONS AND TALK TO OTHER MEMBERS. THEN SHOW YOUR PRIDE. WEAR IT ON YOUR BODY, TELL YOUR FRIENDS AND SUPPORT LODGE ACTIVITIES. IF YOU HAD IT, YOU NEVER LOST IT. IT NEEDS TO BE RENEWED!

Handicapped Children's Committee News

The HCC wishes to thank everyone involved in the planning stages of our September 22nd Comedy Night - it was with much sorrow that we canceled the evening. We as a committee felt that the tragic events of September 11th made the evening an inappropriate endeavor. We, like many other, will continue to pray for all involved.

Coming events for our children are Pizza & Poster night November 18th and the Annual HCC Holiday Party on December 16th.

Please stay tuned for information on ID Day coming in January.

Anyone interested in working on this committee or know a child in need, call Terry @758-8563 or Stan @758-3444.

Drug Awareness


You make the difference between mediocrity & excellence!

Just a moment of your time to talk about a $5.00 bill. True, it will not buy much today, but multiply that $5.00 by over 200 donations and you have $1,000.00 – not that small at all. Think about it! That is what has peaked our interest and will, hopefully, peak your!

We are asking for your $5.00 to establish an endowment for the New Egypt Elks Drug Awareness Program as part of our struggle to keep it current ` not an easy feat with the inflationary spiral changing so rapidly.

We will be grateful for your contribution and I am sure you will feel good about giving it. Checks should be written out to NEE Drug Awareness and sent to Keith Crawford - 27 Corville Drive, Browns Mills NJ 08015. Your donation would be greatly appreciated and I thank you in advance for your generosity and caring.

Most sincerely,

Keith A. Crawford/Drug Awareness Chairman

The Drug Awareness Committee


The Drug Awareness Committee will be holding its Annual Poster Contest again, which is open to all 5th grade classes in our area. The topic for this year is a message that they would like to see on or in a cigarette pack or on a sign, i.e. secondhand smoke.

If any class puts on a skit on about second-hand smoke or the result of tobacco, the students in that class can win a pizza party.

We are still collecting used sporting goods (bicycles, baseball, football and soccer equipment and board games. We need help in refurbishing these items. Monetary help in offsetting this project would also be greatly appreciated.

We are raffling off a brand new skateboard ($75 value) and a Calvin Klein after-shave bag ($85 value). We are requesting a $1 donation per ticket per item with the drawing to be held on Friday, December 14, 2001, at the Lodge. Chances will be available at the Lodge or by contacting me at 893-7229.

Thank you,
Keith A. Crawford, Chairman

National Foundation News

National Service Committee


As this Elk year comes to an end, our Lodges commitment to the Elks National Foundation has reached a high point. At the district meeting on Feb. 12th, I received information showing our per-capita is now at $3.91 per member! Our Pig Roast fundraiser gave us a $556.00 boost. I would also like to commend Al Costa for his support of the Foundation. His generous donations show the true great heart of Elkdom. I hope to have some more fundraisers next year and surpass this years final tally.

We had 4 students apply for ENF's Most Valuable Student Scholarships. All were very active in their communities & schools. Unfortunately, they didn't get past the district judging.

Remember, the Elks National Foundation's funds are distributed to all Elks charities on the national level. This year, for every dollar NJ Elks donated, $1.47 was given back to our state's programs. At the present time, NJ ranks 8th in the nation for per capita - per member. Let's aim higher for next year!

Thanks again for your support!

Yours in Elkdom

There’s never a moment

that’s right in our lives

for losing a person we love...

It’s hard to know why

things should happen like this,

so we turn to our Father above.

He’ll lighten the loss

and the sadness we’re feeling with strength

only He can impart.

And just as a father

embraces a child,

He will shelter us near to His hear.
