At the Orange Park Acres' 44th Annual 4th of July Parade, veterans, scouts and members from the Orange Elks Lodge # 1475 participated.

“As long as there is a Vet, the Orange Elks will never forget” Thank you for your service to our country, we are truly grateful to you. At our lodge when we see a soldier or find out they have served, we walk up to them and say “THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE!”  Orange Lodge member, Jim Duncan a WW2 veteran, received a big “Thank You” for his service to our country!
