The community is invited to join Elks Lodge 2379 achieving 50 years of service at their Anniversary Dinner Celebration on Saturday evening, Nov. 18.
Community leaders chartered Elks Lodge 2379 on Nov. 15, 1967 and Elk members have been caring and sharing in the Santa Clarita Valley since that time. Today, 700 local Elk members work together to honor our Veterans for their service to our Country, honor our flag, offer scholarships, recognize and honor exceptional individuals in the community, support two Cub Scout Packs, Boy Scout Troop 2379, and a Venture Crew, provide dictionaries to third grade school children, and on-going fun and family gatherings. The monthly calendars are filled with events, fun and sharing for people of all ages in the community.
The Elks organization is a national fraternal order, with more than 1900 lodges and approximately 800,000 members across the country. Elk Lodges are places where neighbors come together, families share meals, and children grow up. Elks invest in their communities through programs that help children grow up healthy and drug-free, meet the needs of today’s veterans, and improve the quality of life. Local Elk members have served the Elks proudly at the local, District and State levels; numerous trophies have been received for their efforts on display at Elks Lodge 2379. Their mission, among many things, is to inculcate the principles of Charity, Justice, Brotherly Love and Fidelity; quicken the spirit of American patriotism; and serve the people and communities through programs demonstrating that Elks Care and Elks Share.
