Elks Lodge Veterans Day celebration set for Nov. 12

The Encinitas Elks Lodge will celebrate Veterans Day with a 1940s- themed dinner, dance show and ceremonies saluting local veterans and active military on Nov. 12.

Highlights of the evening, which begins at 5 p.m. at Elks Lodge 2243, will be live entertainment by the Santa Fe Christian Dance Troop, a Tri-Tip dinner done by local BBQ competition winners and presentations of donations to Semper Fi Fund and Veterans Research Alliance.

The public is invited to show gratitude by sponsoring a dinner for an active military member. Dinner and the show cost $20.

Throughout the year, the Encinitas Elks Lodge 2243 provides personal support and donations to the San Diego veterans hospitals, Veterans Village and veterans’ families.
