Honored Elks


July's "Elk of the Month" has been an Elk for 20 Years. He joined the Garden Grove Elks Lodge in March 2000. He is a man who volunteers for many different projects at the lodge. He can be found helping during special events and fundraisers and has been seen at the grill many times. He can also be found behind the scenes in the Sound Booth where, week after week, he helps manage the sound system and lighting during our lodge meetings. He is always very dependable with this and I am thankful that he has taken on this responsibility.

I am pleased to announce Eric Rasmussen, member #7757, as our July Elk of the Month. Congratulations Eric. Well deserved.
