We will be holding a Lodge Meeting tomorrow night (July 14th) at 7:30pm via Zoom. Last time we had almost 40 people attend via Zoom. Since gatherings of that size are still limited, I felt this to be the safest option for our members. We will look at a hybrid in-person/Zoom option in August as things progress. If you would like to attend, please email me at ExaltedRuler@BallardElks.org for the Zoom link. Please note that your membership must be current to attend. -Sean ReddyExalted Ruler ...

Storing Produce Without Plastic: Zucchini! Also known as Summer Squash, this warm weather delicacy does fine for a few days left out on a cool counter, even after cut. Save that fridge space!We can eat grilled and sautéed Zucchini until the cows come home, but we're curious to try a new method. If you're a fan of refreshing summer soups, this Chilled Zucchini Soup with Purslane recipe from Food & Wine just might hit the spot. Pureed zucchini makes the soup creamy, while sauteed garlic and onion lend it a savory flavor. If you've never tried purslane, now it the time! Often classified as a weed, many of our farmers grow it intentionally for its satisfying crunch and tanginess.

We will be updating the NOR/SI in the next day or two to reflect the COVID-19 precautions, which will be similar to the Ballard Cup 2020 notice. Sign up soon! ... See MoreSee Less

As we try to re-open, the rise of COVID-19 cases locally, statewide and nationally means that "we are having more contact with one another but not taking more precautions," says Dr. Jeff Duchin, Health Officer for Public Health—Seattle & King County. "The virus is still widespread in the community and the risk for infection remains serious."We need to maintain the path we've been on: avoid close contact and poorly ventilated areas; wear masks indoors and out when you can't be more than 6 feet away from others; frequent hand washing and sanitizing; staying home when sick, or when you think you've been exposed to someone with the virus. We can be asymptomatic carriers without knowing it - so let's all help save some of our friends, family and neighbors. publichealthinsider.com/2020/06/19/the-virus-hasnt-let-up-and-we-cant-either/ ...
