Ritual

Ritual Pin The Ritualistic Committee is responsible for promoting excellence in the rituals. To accomplish this, the Ritualistic Committee hosts clinics and seminars to educate Lodge Officers and others on the finer points of ritual performance. The Elk Rituals can be very inspirational, but only if they are done properly. When we hear the word ritual, the first thought in our mind is Initiation. However, we should realize that ritual also includes Opening and Closing of Lodge meetings, the Eleven O'clock Toast, and special services like Flag Day and Memorial services. The first impressions are usually the most lasting. This is your opportunity to show leadership and enthusiasm for the principles of our order.
