Stuart-Jensen Elks Lodge Had a Busy Quarter
- Written by Suzi Simonelli
Stuart-Jensen Elks Lodge #1870 finished the year strong with a gain in membership. They had a very busy season. In January, Linda Elliott and the Veterans Committee hosted a veterans luncheon for disabled veterans from the VA hospital. There was a Rod Stewart impersonator show in February with 200 in attendance as well as a Sweetheart Ball. At their St. Patrick’s Day celebration, the Lodge Chaplain, Mike Foley, dressed in his kilt and played the bagpipes. They also held a spaghetti dinner fundraiser for their BSA Venture Crew 2832 in March to help the scouting unit. The Lodge is also proud that they have used all six Florida Elks summer camp scholarships and they have also sent 12 additional kids to camp from their charity fund.
