The Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks is dedicated to service in communities across the country. One of the many areas of involvement with Elks nationwide is to honor and serve our veterans. The Order has a long tradition of service to our veterans through support and honor. To keep those traditions active, the Milford Elks can be seen marching in Memorial Day and Veterans’ Day parades, holding annual Flag Day ceremonies, replacing flags on veterans’ graves, and to providing with aid, comfort, and support when needed.
To that end, the Milford Elks Lodge #1589 recently applied for and were awarded a grant from the Elks National Foundation, known as the Gratitude Grant. The Foundation offers this grant to a select number of local Elks Lodges every year who meet the per-member giving goal for our Elks National Foundation. The grant can be used for an active service project within the community.
