NMEA State Elk of the Year

 David Gonzalez of the Tucumcari Elks Lodge was awarded the New Mexico "State Elk of the Year Award" for 2010-2011.

"The New Mexico State Spring convention was held in Albuquerque on March 31 thru April 2, 2011. All of my work with the Elks has been with Youth Activities. I am the out-going State of New Mexico NE District Youth Activities Chairman; however, I will continue to be the Youth Activity Chairman for Tucumcari Elks Lodge # 1172.

What an awesome honor to be selected the NM State Elk of the Year.

Thank you all very much. This is an honor which I will never forget."

Congratulations, David! We at the Dictionary Project appreciate your support and all that you’ve done to help start new dictionary projects in New Mexico.
