Elks Lodge #88 treated local Police, Fire and EMT's to a picnic lunch at Bigelow Park in Bay City, MI on Saturday, July 21, 2012.

Exalted Ruler, Eric Mulholland, who took the helm at Elks Lodge #88, in April of this year, remarked, "The Elks wanted to give back to those who risk their lives for us." He went on to add, "This is our first and hopefully annual picnic for our 'Hometown Heroes'."

On the menu was deep fried turkey and chicken, potatoes, coleslaw and dessert. Those working could come get a take out box or sit and have lunch at the pavilion.

Outstanding story. Nice to see a "young'en" is the top dog at my late parents Elks lodge. They be extremely happy if they were still alive and active.
Agree? or Disagree?
