Lordsburg Lodge #1813 Celebrates Elks National Youth Week – MAY 1-7, 2022

The Lordsburg Elks Lodge joined forces with the Lordsburg local Head Start to celebrate Youth Week, in conjunction with The Week of the Young Child. The multiagency event featured games, education and food for more than 150 kids of all ages. Lordsburg Lodge jump started summer and the warm weather with lots of free water toys for the children, donated by the local Dollar General, a huge supporter of the lodge’s youth program. The 8 members of the Lordsburg lodge who were on site represented not only the BPOE, but also multiple organizations, including the Lordsburg Volunteer Fire Department, Hidalgo Medical Services, City of Lordsburg NM, NM Breastfeeding Task Force, Parents as Teachers and La Escuelita Head Start. The Lodge was proud to partner with such amazing agencies.
