Dear Florida Ladies of Elks,
I would like to introduce myself to your Ladies Organization. My name is Laura Sardella, I was recently installed as the FLOE President. This year the Board and I wish to let all our Ladies Organizations know how important they are and to make sure we all support one another.
We would like to thank everyone that stopped by the FLOE Hospitality Suite and supported our President's Raffle at the FSEA State Convention 2022. We all had a great time.
FLOE welcomes our newest Delegates,
Sophia will be attending the University of North Florida majoring in Biology and is the daughter of Laura Sardella the current FLOE Treasurer.
"Friday Night Motown"
ACT 3 is the most exciting entertainment package that you would want to see and hear. The group was established in 1996 and was comprised of three singers (two male and one female). Today, ACT 3 has five members (four male and 1 female) plus a sound engineer.
Once again Elks and Anna Miller Circle members met at the Elks Lodge 1578 to pack welcome kits for The Haven of Lake and Sumter Counties. The donation included 340 adult welcome kits (travel size soap, shampoo, conditioner, moisturizer, toothbrush, toothpaste, mouthwash and deodorant) and 100 children's welcome kits (soap, toothbrush, toothpaste, hand sanitizer, lip balm, shampoo, a small toy and other items). Also included were eleven birthday kits (cake mix, frosting and candles) for children who celebrate their birthday at the shelter. Other misc. items included food, children's clothes and toys. The total contribution is valued at $4,545.50.
Perfect example of teamwork between the Ladies (Oleo) and the Elks. Ocala Elks sponsored a Valentine widows luncheon, February 15th . Oleo ladies were the waitresses, decorated the tables and wrapped the many gift baskets for each lady that attended.
I am delighted to have the opportunity to wish everyone a very Happy New Year and a successful 2020. It has been a busy Elk year for me. Tom and I feel so fortunate and grateful to have the opportunity to serve our Florida State Elks Association as President and First Lady.
I am proud to say I have been a member of FLOE for over 20 years. I am equally proud of all the accomplishments I have witnessed.
