Peter T. Affatato, PGER All-Connecticut Lodge Contest Page

The All-Connecticut Lodge Contest is awarded yearly in the honor of Peter T. Affatato, PGER, who was our State Sponsor for 28 years.  PGER Affatato was always proud of the many awards that our state received at the Grand Lodge level. He was a strong supporter of lodge participation in Elks programs because it illustrated a commitment by Elks for making a difference in the community. In remembrance of Peter, we have dedicated the All Connecticut Lodge Contest in honor of him.
Not to be confused with the Grand Lodge All American Lodge Contest, the All
Connecticut Lodge Contest specifically pertains to the amount of program
participation that our State Association lodges attained throughout the year. This
contest combines Grand Lodge and Connecticut programs but, is particularly State
Association oriented. It is mainly a compilation of what your lodge accomplished during the year.
The contest format is easy to follow. Just fill in the contest form and submit it by the
judging deadline. All lodges are eligible to compete. Don’t wait until the last minute.
