Elk Grove’s Elks #2577 treated veterans, their relatives, and other community members to a free barbecue lunch on Memorial Day at Elk Grove Regional Park. They worked with American Legion Post 233, which organized the annual Walk for Veterans fundraiser. Supporters first attended a Memorial Day ceremony at the historic Elk Grove Cemetery before they walked to the park. There are several veterans in Elks #2577 and the organization regularly supports many veterans’ events throughout the year. The Elks motto is ‘So long as there are veterans, the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks will never forget them.’
