November Declared Elks Veterans Rememberance Month
The Town issued an official proclomation declaring November as "Elks Veterans Remberance Month." Councilwoman Susan Berland presented the proclamation to Huntington Elks 1st Vice President John J. Safarick on Nov. 26.
The Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, a fraternal organization with over one million members, aims to inculcate the principles of charity, justice, brotherly love and fidelity; quicken the spirit of American patriotism; cultivate good fellowship and serve our veterans. The organization instituted the first G.I. Loan program for returning soldiers after World War I and sponsors programs promoting American patriotism and scholarship and support for veterans.
"The Town of Huntington is proud to honor The Elks whose accomplishments and missions are clearly worthy of emulation," said Berland. "Honoring our veterans in the month of November is just one way to show our support for our brave servicemen and women and their families.”
