Elks Volunteer at the 4th Annual Orange County Stand Down for Veterans
Elks from Mission Viejo, Garden Grove, Buena Park and Huntington Beach lodges served a spaghetti dinner with all the fixins to veterans at the Army Reserve Center in Tustin, CA. What is the Stand Down? "In times of war, exhausted combat units requiring time to rest and recover were removed from the battlefields to a place of relative security and safety. Today, Stand Down refers to a community-based intervention program designed to help the nation's estimated 200,000 homeless veterans "combat" life on the streets."

Exalted Ruler Randles received a positive response from the new members when he asked the question, “How many of you joined the Elks in order to help us give back to the community through our charitable works?” Before the evening was over a number of new Elks had already signed on to assist with upcoming veteran’s events as well as Lodge and special needs children’s programs. Randles complimented the new members saying, "You joined us for the right reasons, because giving is what Elkdom is all about."
