Elks Lodge No. 380 recently held its annual Family Picnic for members, their families and guests.
Boy Scout Troop 10 performed the flag-raising ceremony to begin the festivities, set up a display and distributed drug awareness information provided by the Elks, then performed a flag retirement ceremony later in the day.
Sgt. John Schroeder, training and media relations coordinator for the Garland County Sheriff's Department, along with Deputy Grant Yarbrough of the Tactical Response Team, visited the lodge and demonstrated equipment, along with explaining their duties to help keep the community safe.
Lt. Chad Roberts and firefighters Chance Estridge and Eric Fryer of the Hot Springs Fire Department brought a fire truck and explained their duties and the differences between various types of fire trucks and fire equipment.
The Elks participated in a "Dunkin' Booth" to raise money for the "Piggy Bank Fund" which supports the Arkansas Human Development Centers both socially and financially.
Elks and guests were treated to face painting, "straw coin dive" for the children, Bingo, "Bouncy House" for children, snow cones, and corn dogs, burgers, and hot dogs for all.Society on 09/08/2019
