News from Veteran's Chair Louie Santiesteban
On Saturday September 10, David Echavarria and Louie Santiesteban took 18 bikes to the WLA VA for the homeless Veterans. There was an Outreach event at the Rose Garden. Other Organizations were going to give Clothes, goodie bags, Sandwiches, Coffee and Donuts and Culver City Elks donated the bikes. Believe it or not the Bikes were the first to go. We had good weather and all the veterans were pleased. They kept Thanking us over and over. Special thanks to Jack McEachern for refurbishing the bikes!
We are getting Birthday Cards!
A little while back we were approached by a Girl Scout Troop that is sponsored by the Santa Monica Elks Lodge. As you probably know Scouts need to develop activities to support their community. This Troop offered to produce Birthday Cards for our members and we mail them out. Some of you have already received them, including my wife Day!
