Seasons Greetings my fellow Elks!
It has been said that we are too old to believe in miracles, yet the spirit of Christmas can turn frowns into smiles, it can change selfishness into benevolence, it touches the lives of those who are weary and of little faith and helps them to believe once again.

The age of miracles is still with us at the Des Plaines Elks Lodge through the generosity of our members. Looking back at 2022 we saw numerous donations to countless organizations to support Veterans, the homeless, school children, food banks and libraries to name a few. But what is the true miracle of these donations are the Elk members who volunteer and those who donate. Our Elks work tirelessly and give so much of their time to keep the 1526 looking good throughout the year. They attend meetings, lend a hand whenever it's needed and without their help many of the things we take for granted at our Lodge would not happen. To them I say thank you! 011902


I wish all of you the joy of this holiday season and a prosperous and healthy new year! Here's to 2023!

Respectfully, Ed Pizza, ER 🍕
