Highlights of and Additions to the Advocate

Need for Treasurer and President-Elect
We are still in need of volunteers to apply for the elected positions of Treasurer and President-Elect. Please contact Cathy Shelton at if interested.

Luncheon Meeting Cost and Date Changes

The Elks will be charging us more this year for our luncheons.  Luncheon prices have been the same since 2007 or earlier so this should not be unexpected.  This is still a good deal since the price includes the food, tax, and gratuity.  For this year, the member price is $18 and non-members will be charged $20.

Because the Elks Lodge had already scheduled large groups on some date we requested, three of the luncheons will be on a Wednesday.  Those are scheduled for September 11, December 11, and February 12.

Changes to FCRE Bylaws

The membership will be asked to approve elimination of three directorships (Budget and Finance, Communications, and Programs ) at the October 17 luncheon meeting.
