National Veterans Service Committee Activities

July 2019

by Nancy De Vito

It’s hard to believe June is here and we had our first fishing trip of the season. We planned on having our Veteran’s from East Orange Vet. Hosp. joining with our local Coast Guard and a lone Marine. However, East Orange had transportation issues and couldn’t make it. Those who made it had a good time they caught fish but no keepers and lucky for them they went back to the station with lots of food. Enjoy!

Have you received your raffle tickets in the mail. Don’t forget to buy them and return stubs back to the Lodge.

Our next fishing trip will be July 16. We will be enjoyed by Veterans from Lakewood Vet. Hosp. and Military/Veterans from JBMDL. I thank God for Pat and Charlie Podesta, John and Ellen Veprek, Regina McCabe, Mike Marquis, and Cus Dalik. You have no idea how much I appreciated your help.

If there are any Elks out there willing to volunteer from time to time our committtee can sure use your help. I’m feeling the loss of several members on my Commiittee and really can use the help!



God Bless America and God Bless our Troops.


So long as there are Veterans,
the Benevolent & Protective Order of Elks will never forget them!
