ORANGE...The “All American Lodge” is one of the highest achievements from the Elks Grand Lodge. Each year eighteen lodges across the country receive this award. This week started out with the Orange Elks Lodge #1475 being selected as an “All-American Lodge”. The year of 2020-2021 was a most unusual year. Nevertheless, Orange was selected for the great work they accomplished. The award went to the top 3 lodges in each of the six membership divisions and each earned the title of “All American Lodge.” A few of the categories included are Veterans, Americanism, our Youth Programs and Drug Awareness.

 

The first Sunday of the month is the Louis Ochoa breakfast. The breakfast proceeds help support many of our programs. Several members folded flag and boxed up flags for the Orange Coast Districts Flag Retirement Event.

Our lodge donated to the City of Orange Fire Explorers Program. The donation will use to purchase personal protective equipment (PPE) for the young men and women ages 14-20, and prepares them for careers in fire and emergency services.

 

The Drug Awareness Team provided In & Out lunch complete with chips, cookies and drinks to the graduating 6th graders of Handy Elementary School today.

 

It was a great week to start doing our programs again and another great day in the Orange Elks!
