During this crisis, we wish all of those impacted by the wildfires across Oregon and California the safety and health that they deserve. Adhering to the tenets of Charity and Brotherly Love, Corvallis Elks Lodge #1413 would like to offer assistance to those affected and strongly encourages it’s membership to do so as well. Community is needed now more than ever, so let us all pull together and do our part to help those that need it during these unprecedented times!
Following the Board of Directors meeting last night, several members leapt into immediate action to help mitigate the crisis. These dedicated members spent the night tirelessly preparing food for the evacuees temporarily housed at Eddyville High School:
The following need to be acknowledged for the hard work, leadership and dedication displayed last night that all Elks strive for: Trustee Damon Olsen and Kristin Olsen; PER Don Holcomb and Lisa Holcomb; Trustee Cory Ruud; Trustee Brian Mill; Leading Knight Tim Smith; Kitchen Manager John Berger; Jason Jacob. Thank you on behalf of the membership of Corvallis Elks Lodge #1413!
