One of the best events the Orange Elks hold each year is the Law Enforcement & Firefighter Appreciation Dinner.
This event is an evening where the Orange Elks come out and show their appreciation to those HEROS who risk their lives every day protecting our city of Orange and making it a better and safer place to live.
These are men and women who run toward danger to protect and save people!  This year?s Appreciation Dinner recognized 2021 and 2022 police and fire personnel.
