BPOE Elks 1297 would like to thank all those who helped celebrate our 100th anniversary.
Sincere thanks go to Special Deputy Grand Exalted Ruler Ray Ross, who came from Colorado Springs to present a beautiful commemorative plaque from Grand Lodge and the Grand Exalted Ruler.
The July 13 block party was made special by many community members, including fellow Elks, who attended. The bands and musicians, who played out of the goodness of their hearts, included Fred Hargrove, Mark and Jenna, 40 Below, Justified, Blue Sky and others.
In addition, Coors provided the beer garden, there were food and crafts vendors and a kids print ID booth.
And last, but not least, a huge thanks goes to Keith Cerny and The Valley Courier, who helped greatly with publicity and advertising.
The officers and members
