“Elks Care Elks Share”
Two Weeks before Christmas, the Orange Elks Lodge was very busy making Christmas good for families in our city.
“As long as there is a Vet, the Orange Elks will never forget”. On Saturday, nineteen members placed 80 wreaths at the Fairhaven Cemetery. This was part of the Wreaths Across America’s Program to place a wreath on the grave of each veteran.
