July Message from the Exalted RulerJuly Message from the Exalted Ruler It is Definitely and Officially Summer in North Wildwood…. Our Social Quarters, (Deck, Bar’s and Dining Room) are close to capacity daily and especially on the weekends. Between the live music from 5 to 6 bands every weekend and having the best Chef on the entire island, our Lodge has become a planned destination and factors into many of our members vacation plans. The majority of our membership realize and understand the waiting time when told it might be an hour before being seated in the dining room to enjoy a great meal, or standing and waiting for a high top or bar stool to become available, believe me, I appreciate your understanding. I along with your fellow members and officers who staff the Social Quarters do their best to make every members visit an enjoyable and above all safe one. Unfortunately you can not reserve bar stools, concrete tables or high top tables on the deck or inside bar, but all members are encouraged to make reservations in advance for the dining room. Another area we all wish was much larger is our parking lots, sadly we all know 4,500 members into 58 spaces is a tight squeeze. Of course the whole island this time of year is a tight squeeze. One thing to remember if you park in either lot, they are both exclusively for members of Greater Wildwood and require a current 2016/2017 Green Parking Placard be displayed. Without it vehicles can be towed at their owners expense, so please make sure current parking placard are visible for all to see. June was crowed with activities in and around our Lodge and July looks to have even more Celebrations’ and Ceremonies. Starting on the 4th with The North Wildwood Independence Day Family Parade and our annual $5. Fourth of July all you can eat Cook-Out at the Lodge. As always everyone is encouraged to bring a family favorite side dish or desert to share and the Lodge’s Expert Grill Team will be serving up the tastiest dog’s and burgers this side of grilling heaven.. The NJ State BBQ Championship & Anglesea Blues Festival will be held from the 8th to the 10th just off our deck, followed on the 16th by the Mid Atlantic Police/Fire Survivors 5K Race & 1 Mile Walk, Starting and Finishing at the Lodge. On the 21st a new event, The Anglesea Nightmarket and Mobile Food Night on Old New Jersey Avenue, followed on the 23rd by Christmas in July on the beach and the Antique Car Show on the boardwalk. I will miss celebrating the 4th of July with you and the cook-out, as I will be attending the 152nd Grand Lodge Convention in Houston, Texas. But rest assured I will be displaying the pride I have every day from witnessing that the great heart of Elkdom is alive and well, and is proven daily by the commitment and devotion of the Caring and Sharing Elks of Greater Wildwood Lodge.#1896. My goal is to let the entire country know our members Make A Difference everyday with our youth, military, veterans, physically and mentally challenged, special needs children and the disadvantaged. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You… Happy July Jim
