Honored Elks


he person I have chosen for my "Elk of the Month" has been a member of our lodge since September 2013. He has been a very active member since he joined our lodge. He has recognized the need to volunteer his services wherever they are needed. He is a big supporter of our Veterans. He volunteers his time at the Long Beach Veteran's Hospital. Entertaining the Veterans with Bingo and Steak and Bake or any other activity that the lodge participates in at the hospital. He is a greeter and always greets everyone with an enthusiastic smile and a warm handshake. He has also helped with being a Tiler in the park when needed. This member is always at our Lodge meetings on Thursday night.

It gives me great pleasure to name Don Reid, member #9393, as my July 2018 Elk of the Month.
