Fremont Elks donate to veterans and local schools
Submitted By Joan White
In late January, the Fremont Elks donated 132 books, over 50 magazines and several puzzles to the Voluntary Services Department at the Palo Alto VeteranÕs Medical Center. Elk Lodge members donate their Ògently usedÓ books, magazines and puzzles for this purpose.
The lodge also donated almost 300 dictionaries to four local elementary schools. The dictionaries are purchased from special charity funds and distributed to the schools by the lodgeÕs Youth Activities group.
Community service and paying it forward are commitments Fremont Elks Lodge 2121 has made in keeping with the motto ÒElks Care, Elks Share.Ó
