First Responder Appreciation Night
We would like to thank all Elks who helped with this event, held on November 27th, to show our appreciation to Police and First Responder units in Jackson and Randolph counties. If you helped fry fish — serve fish — pick up in the Hall — clean up the kitchen —play music — catch the fish — or just show up to say "Hello and Thank You" to those in attendance.....it was much appreciated! And, we likewise want to extend a special note of appreciation to Lodge member, Mr. Ray Burroughs, for his help in bringing about the Dinner. Last, but not least, we wish to thank ALL Police and First Response Personnel for the great job they do, for all of us, each day!
