Newport Harbor Elks Media
The Newport Harbor Elks lodge maintains an extensive library of photographs taken at most lodge and many district events over the past several years. Recently, the Photo Committee (PhotoCom) opted to host all of our new photo albums on our associated Facebook page due to the increasing popularity and ease-of-use of social media websites.
Photo albums on Facebook allow our members to "tag" their friends in the photos, who are then notified that they have been tagged... as are their friends and family. They, in turn, then view the photos and tag others they know... and in short order several thousand people, members and non-members, have viewed the photos and see for themsleves the fun we have while serving our community and supporting our charities. In effect, it is invaluable advertising that costs nothing but a bit of time & effort. Such a deal!!
We are still in the process of moving our older photo albums to our Facebook site and hope to have that process completed in the near future.
THE 11TH HOUR TOAST
by Newport Harbor's Dave Rudder, PER
The meaning of the 11th Hour and why it has such
heartfelt meaning & significance to all ELKS.
* General John J. Pershing led the American forces in WWI. In gratitude for his victorious service in World War One, President Wilson granted Pershing the right to choose the specific time for the Armistice. As a loyal and upright Elk, Pershing chose the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918; an Elk imprint on the U.S. and the World which has lasted to the present.
Newport Harbor ELKS Videos
From time to time, the PhotoCom creates videos from the photographs of our more popular or meaniful events. These are generally animated slides set to music and presented in fashion intended to evoke a response; either fun or emotional.
Creating these videos is time consuming so we have not been able to create them for all events. However, those created thus far are presented below:
