• Elks Veterans Picnic — 2017

    For our 36th consecutive year, the Alameda Elks traveled up to the California Veteran’s Home in Yountville, to donate personal items and cook a picnic lunch for the Veterans.  This is always one of our most important annual events.  Last year, we were named the Volunteer Organization of the Year by the California Veterans Home.

    Forty-two Alameda Elks got up early on a Saturday morning to drive up to Yountville to have a great day honoring our Veterans.  Our Elks Antlers were out in force and were a big help.  Dozens more Elks, back at home, donated many boxes of personal items that are badly needed and so appreciated by the Veterans.

    As soon as we arrived, Elks just fan out in multiple directions:

    • Unloading boxes of personal items

    • Setting up tables and chairs

    • Taping down tablecloths

    • Firing up the BBQ grill

    • Putting the soda on ice

    • Cutting tomatoes, onions, lettuce, watermelon (and fingers)

    • . . . and Having fun the whole time!
