On Saturday, November 9, the Enterprise Elks will host a dinner for Wallowa County veterans. This dinner will be from 5:00 pm until 8:00 pm at the Enterprise Elks Lodge, on 211 W North St. Proceeds from the evening will benefit local Veteran’s programs.

The Elks are committed to honoring veterans and their service, and this is one of the ways we honor veterans for Veteran’s Day. The Elks established the Elks National Veterans Service Commission in 1946, with the pledge, “So long as there are veterans, the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks will never forget them.” The Elks nationwide have made serving veterans in need, a special focus.

We also wish to thank VFW Post #4307, for their generosity and kindness when they opened their building to us as a meeting place, while the Elks building was being renovated. The members of the VFW Post graciously allowed us to meet there for the last five years. We can’t thank them enough.

The dinner is open to veterans, and their families, as well as Elk’s members and their families. Doors open at 4:30 PM, and the cost will be $10 per person for non-veterans. If you wish to become a member, or you wish to reinstate your lapsed membership, please respond to our email address: bpoe1829@gmail.com, or come join us for dinner.
