Elks Lodges bring so much more to their communities than just a building, golf course or pool. They are places where neighbors come together, families share meals, and children grow up.

Cambridge (Mass.) Lodge Doing Excellent Welfare Work
"American Legion Night" recently held by Cambridge (Mass.) Lodge, No. 839, packed every available space in the Lodge's big auditorium. Several vaudeville acts from Keith's Theater in Boston, cartoonists from Boston newspapers and the Hyde Park Legion Band entertained the guests. The feature of the evening was the presentation by Cambridge Lodge of a beautiful Legion flag to Cambridge Post, No 27.

Cambridge Lodge also played host recently to more than 100 Chelsea Naval Hospital Veterans, staging a gala evening for their entertainment. The veterans were served a fine dinner and enjoyed a program that included monologues and musical numbers by several theatrical performers from Bos ton. Members of the Lodge provided a fleet of closed automobiles that transported the veterans from the hospital to the club house

The Lodge has established a fund, not to exceed $1,000 nor less than $500, to be used to relieve any suffering among school children. The fund is administered by a special committee working with the Super intendent of Schools. It was found that a number of children were obliged to leave school in order to support their families, and it is the intention of the Lodge to provide out of this fund the means for them to continue their education. In addition, Cam bridge Lodge provides eye-glasses, medical treatment, clothing, etc., for those children whose parents are unable to properly care for them.
