Members of Brandon Elks Lodge #2383 continue to come up with little ways to let first responders know that they are appreciated. Mary Lou Scribner, PER baked a cake and dropped it off Jan. 28 at the local fire department around the corner from the lodge with a note from the Brandon Elks that said, “Thank you – We care.” The firefighter who graciously accepted the gift was truly appreciative and surprised. It was such a big reaction from such a little gesture that Scribner asked the Brandon Ladies of Elks and lodge members if they would be interested in volunteering to bake something or picking up a sweet treat from a grocery store and dropping it off at their local fire station to let them know that the Elks care. The ladies and members are signing up for specific months or just randomly stopping by their local fire stations. For Valentine’s Day, Robin Rutzke, Veterans Chair, bought cupcakes and delivered them to Hillsborough Fire Station 18.
