Fremont Elks donate to the community

Submitted By Joan White

The Fremont Elks Lodge 2121 recently donated $1,000 to the Northern California Hub of the Honor Flight Network. The goal of the group is to transport AmericaÕs veterans to Washington D.C. to visit war memorials constructed in their honor. First priority is given to survivors of World War II and those suffering a terminal illness.

The NetworkÕs philosophy is: ÒSince America felt it was important to build a memorial to the service and ultimate sacrifice of her veterans, the Honor Flight Network believes it is equally important that they actually get to visit and experience THEIR memorial.Ó

In addition to donating 300 dictionaries to four local elementary schools, Fremont Lodge 2121 donated dictionaries to three local charity organizations. Thirty-two dictionaries were donated to Sunrise Village Emergency Shelter, and 24 each to SAVE (Safe Alternatives to Violent Environments) and One Child (for disadvantaged children).

Community service and paying it forward are commitments Fremont Elks Lodge 2121 has made in keeping with the motto ÒElks Care, Elks Share.Ó
