Arcadia Vietnam War Monument - January 23, 2016

The Arcadia Elks Lodge #2025 hosted a fundraiser for a Vietnam War Monument to be erected at the Arcadia County Park that is directly across the street from the Lodge. This event was attended by U. S. Representative Judy Chu and various City Leaders.  Commemorative Pins were passed out to those Vietnam War Veterans in attendance. The event  raised apporoximately $5,000.00 to go to the Monument Fund. The Lodge was involved in the subsequent fund raising of nearly $47,000.00 for the project. The Monument is scheduled to be dedicated on May 28, 2016 to coincide with the Memorial Day Veterans Rememberance Ceremony hosted by Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael Antonovich.
