The Ely Elks Lodge will observe their annual Memorial Service on Sunday, December 4 at the Elks Lodge and the service will begin at 3:00 pm.

Exalted Ruler Gayle Bartlett said the service was conceived early in the Elks’ history by members who wished to remember their departed members and cherish their memory. The service has been a mandatory event for over 100 years in the Order of Elks.

The departed member to be remembered is Bernice Apodaca. The speaker will be Reverend Richard Simms of St. Bartholomew’s Church and all Elks, their families and the public are cordially invited to attend the service.
