Lodge 461 and Rio Rancho Lodge 2500 put on a barbecue for the Spinal Cord Unit at the Raymond G. Murphy Medical Center (VA Hospital) this afternoon.
Cooking was Chuck Zobac from Santa Fe, a board member of Honor Flight Northern New Mexico. Also present was a representative from Fisher House talking with the Veterans.
Represented was also Al Samura, District Veterans Commission Chair and Elks Lodge 461 Wendy Villasenor, Veterans Committee, who is presently serving in the Army.
The Veterans were all outside enjoying a picnic in the shade!
This is the first time anyone has been allowed back into the Hospital since the Covid and all were excited and could not thank the Elks enough!
