What a wonderful visit by our Vice President, Brenda Ferri!  The Elks were so happy that she could attend our Luau which is a fundraiser for our Community of Youth! 

Also a wonderful surprise was to have with us Jacob Fritchie, whom I met in Minneapolis at the GL Convention.  He is one of our National Elks Most Valuable Student Winners who was interning at Sandia National Labs.  Jacob spent a lot of time talking to people and lending a hand where ever needed.  What a shining example of our future.  Jacob is now getting ready to go to University of Illinois to start his PHD in Nuclear Engineering.

      ABQ Elks Lodge 461 Hosted a Flag Day Ceremony on June 17th

      Flag Day at Albuquerque Elks Lodge #461 on June 17th.
      Lodge #461 presented a Flag Day presentation starting with a history of the Flag as the years passed after our founding.
      The Lodge had members and friends bring in old flags for proper disposal. Members of the Neptune Society, a cremation service, attended the event. They accepted our old flags to be placed with veterans who had passed and are to be cremated.
      To finish the event a demonstration of the proper folding of our flag was done by several Lodge members.
      Honored guests were the members of our Local Fire Department, who unfortunately had to leave due to a call.
      Thank you to all members who did a fantastic job of celebrating the history of our Flag!
