HUNTINGTON BEACH...Huntington Beach Elk’s Lodge #1959 participated in a Surf event at Huntington Beach for the Waves of Valor. This is an event where volunteer surfers surf along the side of disabled Veteran’s. We had two paraplegics along with about 20 other veterans that participated. The volunteers helped them into the water an onto long surf boards in the waves. It was a great event. We also donated $500.00 to the National Team Red White and Blue HQ to help support this annual event. Photos:HBElks
