Elks Lodge 380 recently celebrated the culmination of a 20-week fundraiser with a spaghetti dinner at the Lodge for all participants, a news release said.
The funds from the "20/20" fundraiser -- donations of $20 made over a 20-week period by individual Elk members -- are used to support the Elks' many veteran support projects.
The veteran projects include a free meal for all area veterans on Veterans Day, the "Adopt-a-vet" program, the condiments for the coffee bar at the VA Clinic in Hot Springs, party barge rides and picnic lunches monthly during summer months, except during the COVID-19 pandemic shutdown, and other supportive projects for veterans, the release said.
The Elks' motto is "As long as there are veterans, the Elks will never forget them."
