Perry Elks Lodge No. 407 held its installation of officers for the 2018-2019 lodge year on Saturday, April 7, 2018. Dave Davis was installed as Exalted Ruler.

Also installed were Leading Knight Greg Haglund, Loyal Knight Heather Erickson, Lecturing Knight Amber Green, Chaplain Eric Derry, Esquire Patti Davis, Secretary Jon Jamison, Treasurer Dwayne Morman and Trustees John Taylor, Matt Mickelson and Chad Morman.

After the installation of officers, the Elk of the Year award was presented to Dennis “Denny” Snowgren. Snowgren has been an Elk since 1992 and served as Exalted Ruler in the 2014-2015 lodge year. Larry Meacham gave the presentation saying that Snowgren “is generally modest and unassuming, quietly going about the business that needs to be done to make the lodge better.”

Snowgren, a Perry native, is married, has three sons and enjoys golf and music in his spare time.
