Redlands, Calif., Lodge No. 583 utilizes its Beacon Grant to help furry friends find forever families! The Lodge partners with a local animal shelter to host an annual adoption fair where they provide discounted adoption rates and microchips to all pets being adopted, and anyone with an animal who lives in the community. Elks are completely in charge, starting with marketing the event, setting up the tents and enclosures, greeting visitors, and cleaning up when the day is over.
