Newport Harbor Elks Provide Dictionaries to Students and Teachers
A few days in November were busy for some fellow Elks who volunteered to assist Sharron Dearborn, this year’s Youth Activities Chairman, with the packing, labeling and delivery of dictionaries to 22 elementary schools in the Newport-Mesa Unified School District. The volunteers delivered dictionaries to 1,656 third-grade students and 84 teachers… impressive!
Thanks are in order for this year’s Dictionary Projected volunteers: Sharron Dearborn, Jonathan Ellowitz, Pam Sutton, Dan Roach, Mark Wyland, Angela Anderson, and Darlene Goens.
Newport Harbor Elks Lodge 1767 Finds a Way to Honor Their Departed Veterans
By Americanism Chairman P.E.R. Dave Rudder
Newport Harbor Elks found a new way to honor the service of its departed Veterans and recognize their ultimate gift of love and charity to their country. Lodge 1767 has offered to fly the Veteran’s flag in tribute of a departed Veteran that was a member of the lodge, or an immediate family relative of a lodge member.
The flag will be flown over the lodge for a month, and an article will be added to the lodge’s newsletter highlighting the Veteran's service. After the month, the flag will be formally retired or returned to the family member.
