To the Exalted Rulers and all PERs. Next year at the Grand Lodge convention in Atlanta, there will be two new contests.

The first is the 11o'clock toast, and the second is the final Salute to the Flag charge. Currently I am looking to hold a state contest sometime in March. Further details will be forthcoming.
Please check the CT Elks Facebook page or our ctelks website.The goal for the Ritual Committee is to help the Lodge Officers develop a better understanding of the importance the Ritual makes on the impression of the new member. This is the Lodges second chance to grasp the attention of the new member, and hopefully want to make them get involved in their Lodge.
