Elks News & Upcoming Highlights

The VA is currently NOT accepting Clothing Donations
Our Veteran's Chair, Louie Santiesteban, asked me to let you know not to bring in Clothes for the Vet until further notice. This appears to be in response to Coronavirus concerns.

Seating is limited to the Patio. The Back Bar will be open for service only, no seat or loitering. Members must bring their own masks, sanitizing stations will be available.
