"It was nice to be able to give back to the organization that gave something to me. I was also able to use my knowledge and skills to create a social media presence for the organization. Social media is the new "word of mouth" for younger generations so being able to promote the local lodge in a new way was exciting. It was also nice to meet with members of the local lodge and hear their experiences and what it means to them to be an Elk member." - Julia, 2023 Legacy Awards
