Recently, I was appointed Historical Commemorative Projects Liaison. One of the biggest programs we are supporting is the Florida State Elks Association partnership with Historic Programs. Our partnership recognizes and celebrates historical moments in the history of our nation helping to ensure that the sacrifices made by many in our nation are never forgotten and that they are passed on to future generations of Americans. This partnership is a living example supporting our Elks Motto “So long as there are veterans, the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks will never forget them.”
Partnering with Historic Programs, a recent mission raised funds to take WWll veterans to Honolulu, December 6-10, 2016 to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of Pearl Harbor.
We are currently planning a celebration to honor Korean War Veterans and the 50th Anniversary of the Viet Nam War this November. Please see the flyer below for more information. If you would like to sponsor a veteran and caretaker, please see our Go Fund Me page by clicking this link: http://bit.ly/2t4LUQt . The estimated cost to send both a Veteran and caretaker is $2,460. The overall fundraising goal is $64k or just over $4,500 per district.
You may also mail your donations to Rudy Masi, Sr. at:
