• Elks Celebrate Flag Day

    We celebrated Flag Day this past Sunday at the Alameda Elks Lodge.  We began, as we always do, with an official Flag Retirement ceremony, performed by our local Scout troops.  As is the tradition, we cut each strip from the flag, named for the original 13 colonies, and burned them before burning the blue field, representing the 50 states.

    Then we moved up to the Lodge Room and honored the history of the Flag and pledged our allegiance to the flag.  As always, our thanks to Gary Randall for the loan of his historic flag collection, illustrating the history of our national flag.

    Lastly, we finished with the awarding of our Legacy Scholarship Award and our Americanism Essay Contest awards.  We congratulate Julianna Eckerd, the winner of our 2017  Elks Legacy Scholarship Award and the winners of our Elks Americanism Essay contest.  It was a wonderful day to be an Elk.
