Charlotte Michael became a member of Elks Lodge 378 in the mid-'90s.

She was among the first group of women to join the Elks Lodge as a member. For many years, Charlotte has helped out by serving in various officer positions of the lodge - inner guard, 1999-00; chaplain, 2001-02, 2002-03; Loyal Knight, 2005-06; and Lecturing Knight, 2004-05, 2006-07 and 2008-09.

Not only is Charlotte the Lecturing Knight this year, she is also the president of the Ladies of the Elks and Associates.

Charlotte has also served as vice president of the LOTEA from 1997-1999. Whenever help was needed and she was asked, she never hesitated to be there.

The Lodge wants to thank Charlotte for her willingness to help and for her intelligence in the performance of her duties.

From your friends at the Lodge.
