Exalted Ruler Judy Ruffing of Little Falls Elks Lodge #42 announced Stan Dickson as the recipient of the 2021 Elk of the Year award.
Stan grew up in the Utica area, and he has been a resident of Little Falls since moving here from New York City in 1983. He has been a member of the Elks for 33 of those years.
Other than the three years he went through the chairs to become Exalted Ruler, he has been a fixture as Lodge Esquire, and a long-time Canal Days weekend festivities volunteer.
Mr. Dickson resides in Little Falls with his wife Joann, where their daughter Katie went through our school system from pre-school all the way through graduation. Katie lives in Michigan with her husband Jeff. Katie and Jeff are in the early stages of a year in Thailand.
A dinner and cocktail hour will take place at 6:00 PM on Saturday, October 23 at the Elks Lodge. Tickets are $20 each, or $35 per couple, and can be obtained at the Lodge or by calling the Lodge at 315-823-2371.
