My recent visit to the San Antonio Lodge was very enjoyable due to the friendly reception of Lodge members and especially Bruce Pinnell, the present ER. The Veterans Day presentation was very well presented and my only wish was that all the people in the city could have been there to witness all the contributions the Elks have given our men in uniform.
