ABQ Elks Lodge 461 and Rio Rancho Elks Lodge 2500 – Hosted a Barbecue at the Raymond G. Murphy Medical Center

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!

El Paso Elks Lodge187 – Hosted a Writing Workshop for Veterans by Bill Sparks

Thank you to ENF for making this Workshop Possible for our Veterans!

What a moving experience observing and listening to Bill Sparks work his magic during his creative healing with words writing workshop for Veterans.  

Bill Sparks was very inspirational as he talked with the Veterans and he himself being a Veteran.   Best example of a veteran helping other veterans to deal with their own needs by the power of their own written words.
