Elks Memorial Day Service:
William P. Shaughnasey;

From 2013-2014 111th Elks Memorial Service
December 2, 2013
The beautiful traditional Elks Memorial Day Service was held at 3:00 p.m., Sunday, by Hudson Elks Lodge 787 in the Lodge Room ...Once more the tolling of 11 strokes has revitalized and strengthened our memories. Once more we remember, each in our own way, the warm smile, the reassuring look, and the comforting touch of those held dear.
The 11 O'clock toast was given by William P, Shaughnasey, Exalted Ruler , the Secretary John H. Minners, PDD read the names of the 7 members who had passed during the year and Esquire Deb Minners, PER lit a candle in memory of each member. Rev. Ken Cottindton Trinity United Methodist Church gave both Invocation and Benediction for the Service, Rev Gerald Van Altyne From Hudson Correction Facility gave the address to a full room of Elks and their family and guests. Music was done by members Hudson High School Choir who sang 2 selections Rose M. Shaughnasey, PER read a special poem Thomas Fisher sang the Vacant Chair and You left me up. In attendance this year was Mayor William Hallenbeck Jr. of the City of Hudson.
We dedicate this, not as an hour of sorrow and despair, but one of hope and reverence; for , although we miss our members, ...By these services we rekindle the fires of memory and pay a just tribute of affection and honor to our members who have journeyed to the distant shores, said William P. Shaughnasey, Exalted Ruler as we opened the service. The dim lights in the room helped to brighten the area around the vacant chair for the annual Elks Memorial Day Service.
It is fitting that we as Elks, in the brotherhood of Elkdom, continue to honor those gone before us as "An Elk is never forgotten, never forsaken."
Daniel P. Shaughnasey, Leading Knight & Chairman
