Our guest speaker was Orange Police Chief and Orange Elks member Dan Adams. Dan was impressed by the quality of participation of the young people and the generosity of the Orange Elks toward our youth programs. Dan challenged the young people to ?Leave an impression as impressions last forever? and be a positive influence because being positive is contagious?.
